Rachel Yankey - top international footballer

0:00:440:00:47

and all-round sporting superstar.

0:00:470:00:51

But when Rachel's not scoring goals for her team,

0:00:510:00:54

she's playing with the Footy Pups.

0:00:540:00:57

CHEERING

0:00:580:01:01

Hi, guys. We're all warmed-up, so it's time to get moving.

0:01:020:01:06

Today, on my team, we have...

0:01:080:01:10

Number one, Joe.

0:01:100:01:12

I like the way you've done that.

0:01:130:01:16

Number two, Chloe.

0:01:160:01:18

Aw, fantastic!

0:01:190:01:21

Number three, Jacob.

0:01:210:01:23

Brilliant! Well done.

0:01:240:01:26

Number four, Emmy.

0:01:260:01:28

Great stuff.

0:01:290:01:31

Number five, Isabella.

0:01:310:01:34

Good footwork.

0:01:350:01:36

Number six, Louis.

0:01:370:01:40

Nice!

0:01:400:01:41

Also joining us are Footy Pups Pickles and Geraldine.

0:01:410:01:44

So, that's today's team.

0:01:470:01:49

OK, guys, gather round, it's team-talk time.

0:01:500:01:53

-ALL:

-Yay!

0:01:530:01:54

Today, we'll look at controlling the ball

0:01:540:01:57

with different parts of our body.

0:01:570:01:59

In football, what parts of our bodies could we use?

0:01:590:02:03

-Chloe?

-My head.

-Brilliant.

0:02:030:02:06

-Louis?

-Our feet.

-Fantastic.

0:02:060:02:08

In football, we can control a high ball with our head, or our chest,

0:02:080:02:12

or a low ball with our knees or our feet.

0:02:120:02:15

There are three main things to remember when controlling the ball -

0:02:150:02:19

look to see where the ball is,

0:02:190:02:21

we need to think about which part of our body to use

0:02:210:02:25

and move to get in line with the ball.

0:02:250:02:27

-Can you say it with me?

-ALL:

-Yeah!

0:02:270:02:30

Can you guys at home say it with us?

0:02:300:02:32

-ALL:

-Look to see where the ball is.

0:02:320:02:35

Think about which part of our body to use.

0:02:350:02:39

And move to get in line with the ball.

0:02:390:02:42

Let's go and have a practice! Come on.

0:02:420:02:44

In pairs, pass the ball back and forth to each other

0:02:460:02:49

by rolling it along the floor

0:02:490:02:51

so your partner can control it with their feet.

0:02:510:02:54

They need to cushion the ball and stop, then roll it back.

0:02:540:02:58

Off you go! Inside of the foot to cushion it.

0:02:580:03:01

Excellent. Well done, Joe. Look, think about using your feet.

0:03:010:03:06

Good roll! Great control!

0:03:080:03:10

Another part of our body we can use is our knee or our thighs.

0:03:100:03:14

Throw the ball between you

0:03:140:03:16

so your partner can lift their leg and control the ball with the thigh.

0:03:160:03:20

-Good stuff.

-Nicely done, Jacob.

-Well done, Isabella.

0:03:200:03:24

Good job from the pups.

0:03:250:03:27

As it touches your thigh, take your thigh away

0:03:270:03:30

so the ball can drop down on the floor.

0:03:300:03:32

So, have a look at the ball.

0:03:320:03:34

Good! Well done, Chloe.

0:03:350:03:37

Move to get in line with the ball.

0:03:370:03:39

Brilliant, Joe!

0:03:400:03:41

Well done.

0:03:430:03:44

Whilst these guys keep practising, here's a reminder for you at home.

0:03:440:03:49

Remember to look at where the ball is,

0:03:490:03:52

think about which part of your body to use,

0:03:520:03:54

and move to get yourself in line with the ball.

0:03:540:03:57

This time, we'll control the ball with our chest.

0:03:590:04:02

One of you throws the ball underarm to get some height,

0:04:020:04:05

the other leans back, controls the ball with the chest

0:04:050:04:09

and then leans forward to push it to the ground. Just like this.

0:04:090:04:13

Off you go.

0:04:150:04:17

Yeah, good chest control.

0:04:170:04:19

When you throw the ball, aim for the shield on your chest.

0:04:190:04:22

This could be tricky, so use a soft ball.

0:04:220:04:25

Good!

0:04:250:04:26

We're looking at the ball,

0:04:260:04:28

thinking how we're going to use our chest control.

0:04:280:04:31

-Emmy is looking ready.

-Well done.

0:04:310:04:34

You lean forward so you send the ball down to your feet.

0:04:340:04:37

Good chest control. Well done.

0:04:370:04:39

Geraldine! You're great at controlling the ball.

0:04:410:04:44

Thanks, Pickles. But I haven't always been.

0:04:440:04:48

Do you remember that slippery match

0:04:480:04:50

we played against Antarctic Thistle?

0:04:500:04:52

Brrr! Oh, yes!

0:04:520:04:54

It's been snowing here at Pupton Park, but luckily,

0:04:560:05:00

groundskeeper Pete has cleared the pitch in time for today's match.

0:05:000:05:04

-ENGINE RUMBLES

-Come on, old girl.

0:05:040:05:06

Don't let me down now!

0:05:060:05:08

Hey-hey! I did it!

0:05:080:05:10

No!

0:05:100:05:12

-ALL:

-Bow-wow! Snow!

0:05:120:05:16

Take care, pups. The icy ground is very slippery.

0:05:160:05:20

It doesn't look slippery.

0:05:200:05:22

Argh!

0:05:220:05:24

Hello, Footy Pups.

0:05:270:05:30

We're the penguins of Antarctic Thistle.

0:05:300:05:33

-TEAM:

-Hi, penguins.

0:05:330:05:36

Are you ready for today's match?

0:05:360:05:39

The ground is a wee bit icy,

0:05:390:05:41

so we need to check with the refer-flea if we can play.

0:05:410:05:44

-It looks better now.

-ALL: Hooray!

0:05:440:05:47

-Oh...

-You've done a flea-mendous job clearing away all the snow, Pete.

0:05:470:05:53

But where did you put it all?

0:05:530:05:55

Help!

0:05:570:05:59

-Brr!

-Brr!

0:06:000:06:03

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:06:030:06:05

-Argh!

-PENGUINS:

-Wee-hee!

0:06:050:06:07

I think the penguins might like the cold, Benny.

0:06:070:06:11

The ball is moving very fast down the icy pitch.

0:06:110:06:14

And the pups are having a hard time.

0:06:140:06:16

I smell t-t-t-trouble!

0:06:160:06:19

Whoa, whoa... Oh!

0:06:190:06:22

Argh! Ooh! Phew!

0:06:240:06:27

-Here you go, Geraldine.

-Roll it slowly, Pickles!

0:06:290:06:33

-You got it!

-Allez... Whoops!

0:06:330:06:36

-Oh, what a howler.

-I can get it!

0:06:360:06:40

Whoa! Ugh!

0:06:420:06:44

Ha-ha-ha!

0:06:470:06:48

Goal to the penguins. They are winning 1-0.

0:06:480:06:52

Oh...

0:06:520:06:53

Antarctic Thistle have the ball,

0:06:550:06:57

and there's a procession of penguins marching up the pitch.

0:06:570:07:01

Time to show these penguins some pizzazz! Got it!

0:07:010:07:04

Oh! It's too slippery!

0:07:040:07:07

I can't control the ball!

0:07:070:07:10

Look at how they use their bodies to control the ball - amazing!

0:07:100:07:15

Oh, wow.

0:07:150:07:17

I'll stop them!

0:07:170:07:19

Ooh! Argh! Oh!

0:07:190:07:22

Goal!

0:07:220:07:23

Why is everyone spinning?

0:07:250:07:27

Antarctic Thistle are now winning 2-0.

0:07:270:07:29

The Footy Pups need to think fast

0:07:290:07:31

in order to play on this frosty pitch.

0:07:310:07:34

Hold on to your pom-poms, cheer-fleaders.

0:07:340:07:36

I'll have this snow moved in a ji-i-i-iffy!

0:07:360:07:41

Whoa!

0:07:410:07:43

Oh, dear, she's blown a gasket.

0:07:430:07:46

-ALL:

-Oh...

0:07:460:07:48

Ooh! If we all dig together, we could shift this snow flea-sy-peasy.

0:07:480:07:54

I like your thinking. Take a trowel.

0:07:540:07:58

-Oh, there you go...

-Uh, haven't you got anything bigger?

0:07:580:08:02

Right, huddle up, pups.

0:08:020:08:05

Rex, aren't you cold enough already?

0:08:050:08:08

Yeah! But the snow's also made me really hungry.

0:08:080:08:12

Right, pups, let's talk tactics.

0:08:120:08:15

Those penguins are skating away with the match.

0:08:150:08:18

The pitch is so slippery!

0:08:180:08:20

The ball is moving too fast for our feet!

0:08:200:08:23

But, Geraldine, you don't always need to use your feet

0:08:230:08:26

-to control the ball.

-Really?

0:08:260:08:29

You could try using your knees, chest, or head, too.

0:08:290:08:33

Just like the penguins!

0:08:330:08:35

If we use our body to trap the ball...

0:08:360:08:40

Then we can control it and pass it around the pitch...

0:08:400:08:43

Without slipping and sliding about!

0:08:430:08:46

Sounds like a puppy plan!

0:08:460:08:48

Uh...a little help here, please?

0:08:500:08:53

It's the second half, and Antarctic Thistle are kicking off.

0:08:530:08:57

-Oh, and great control by Rozzie.

-It worked! Over to you, Geraldine.

0:08:570:09:03

Allez... Whoops!

0:09:030:09:05

Don't worry! I'll slow it down with my knees.

0:09:050:09:09

Oh! I wish I could control my moves better.

0:09:120:09:15

-Thanks, Rex!

-Allez.. Whoops! Coming through!

0:09:170:09:21

Och! Nice moves, Geraldine!

0:09:210:09:24

Hi... Ta-dah!

0:09:240:09:26

Now, Geraldine! Shoot!

0:09:260:09:29

Oh!

0:09:290:09:31

Goal! Which means it's 2-1 to the penguins,

0:09:310:09:34

and the pups are back in the game.

0:09:340:09:36

Meanwhile, the cheerfleaders are preparing for their performance.

0:09:360:09:40

See! My trowels worked a treat. The snow is cleared.

0:09:400:09:45

Yay! We can sing and dance all da-a-a-ay!

0:09:450:09:49

Oh, this is even icier than the pitch.

0:09:490:09:52

I can't perform under these conditions! Unless...

0:09:520:09:56

As we kick off again, the penguins are playing even faster.

0:09:560:10:00

I'll get the ball! Allez... Oops!

0:10:000:10:03

Nice move, Geraldine.

0:10:030:10:05

Thanks! Whoa!

0:10:050:10:08

That's right! Using your knees!

0:10:080:10:11

Oh! Uh! Ha-ha! I did it!

0:10:110:10:16

-Whoa!

-Go on, Geraldine! Keep in control.

0:10:160:10:18

Use your body!

0:10:180:10:20

Oh...

0:10:200:10:21

Oh, dear, Geraldine's gone into a tailspin.

0:10:210:10:24

-Oh!

-Simply marvellous control from Geraldine.

0:10:250:10:28

She scored a goal with her bottom, making the matched a draw - 2-2.

0:10:280:10:32

Cheerfleaders, can I have my trowels back now?

0:10:320:10:36

He-he, look! They're just like ice skates. Wee-hee!

0:10:360:10:41

-CHANTING:

-Head, toes, knees or chest

0:10:410:10:43

Control the ball with the one that's best!

0:10:430:10:46

Go, go, go, Footy Pups! Yay!

0:10:460:10:50

Ha-ha, he-he, ha-ha!

0:10:500:10:53

-Bow-wow, you did it, Geraldine!

-Thank you!

0:10:530:10:57

You've made this wee flea very proud.

0:10:570:11:01

The whole team managed to stay in complete control.

0:11:010:11:05

Argh!

0:11:050:11:08

CRASH!

0:11:080:11:10

LAUGHTER

0:11:100:11:13

Brrr, that really was a chilly match. Wasn't it, Geraldine?

0:11:140:11:19

It sure was.

0:11:190:11:22

But it helped us learn how to control the ball

0:11:220:11:24

with different parts of our bodies.

0:11:240:11:27

-Hi, guys.

-BOTH: Hi, Rachel!

0:11:270:11:29

Bow-wow! Rachel, you're amazing at controlling the ball

0:11:310:11:36

with different parts of your body.

0:11:360:11:38

Thanks. Take lots of practice, though.

0:11:380:11:41

-Hey, why don't you guys practise with me?

-Good idea.

0:11:410:11:44

This is easy. I could do it with my eyes closed.

0:11:480:11:51

HE HUMS

0:11:510:11:54

-Ouch! Oh!

-Oh, Pickles.

0:11:540:11:57

Do you remember how to control the ball

0:11:570:11:59

using different parts of your body?

0:11:590:12:02

Look at where the ball is.

0:12:020:12:04

Think about what part of your body to use.

0:12:040:12:07

And move to get yourself in line with the ball.

0:12:070:12:10

-OK, guys, who fancies a game?

-TEAM: Yeah!

0:12:110:12:14

I've split you up into two teams. We've got the Blues.

0:12:140:12:18

-Blues, give me a cheer.

-Yeah!

-And we've got the Yellows.

0:12:180:12:21

-Yellows, let me hear you cheer!

-Yeah!

-Fantastic.

0:12:210:12:25

Let's take a look with the Footy Pups to find out how to play.

0:12:250:12:29

To play, you need to control the ball in different ways.

0:12:300:12:34

When the whistle blows, the player runs forward

0:12:340:12:37

and controls the ball that's been rolled or thrown.

0:12:370:12:40

Once they've controlled it with their foot, thigh, or chest,

0:12:400:12:43

they can score a goal.

0:12:430:12:45

They run back to their team-mates and the next player starts.

0:12:450:12:49

The winners will be the team who score the most goals.

0:12:490:12:52

Three, two, one.

0:12:530:12:56

-Joe runs forward. It's to his feet.

-Good.

0:12:560:12:59

Oh, excellent goal. Well done.

0:12:590:13:01

-Keep your eyes on the ball.

-It's on her thigh. Fantastic!

0:13:010:13:06

-Can you score a goal?

-Yes! It's a beautiful goal.

0:13:060:13:10

Good chest control.

0:13:100:13:11

-Score a goal.

-Yay!

0:13:110:13:13

Tight, brilliant control. They're right to be pleased.

0:13:130:13:17

-Excellent goal!

-Yay!

-Well done. Nice cheering.

0:13:190:13:22

Come on up. Move in line with the ball.

0:13:220:13:25

Good chest control.

0:13:250:13:27

Oh, off the post!

0:13:280:13:30

There we go, Louis.

0:13:310:13:32

Louis's looking determined. Controls it well.

0:13:320:13:35

It's a goal. Lovely stuff.

0:13:350:13:37

-WHISTLE BLOWS

-And time.

-Let's have a replay.

0:13:370:13:40

The Yellows were cracking at controlling the ball

0:13:400:13:43

with different parts of their body.

0:13:430:13:45

Can the Blues score more goals? Let's find out.

0:13:450:13:48

-Three, two, one.

-WHISTLE BLOWS

0:13:480:13:51

-Here you go, Emmy.

-Emmy sprints out to the ball.

0:13:510:13:54

-Oh, what a goal!

-Well done.

0:13:540:13:57

Jacob is ready. Controls with his thigh.

0:13:570:14:00

-Oh, yes! Great goal.

-In line with the ball.

0:14:000:14:04

It's a high one. Can she finish with a goal?

0:14:040:14:07

-Of course she can.

-Yay!

0:14:070:14:09

Well done.

0:14:090:14:10

Have a think where this one's coming.

0:14:100:14:13

-She's lined herself up. They're making this look easy.

-Yay!

0:14:130:14:17

-Chest control.

-Oh, this is fast!

0:14:170:14:20

-Yeah! Great goal!

-Cracking goal!

0:14:200:14:24

-What will you control it with?

-Her thigh!

0:14:250:14:27

She lines it up for a goal. It's in!

0:14:270:14:30

-WHISTLE BLOWS

-And time.

0:14:300:14:32

Replay! The Blues controlled the ball brilliantly,

0:14:320:14:35

but did they score more than the Yellows?

0:14:350:14:38

Let's go to Pickles and Geraldine for the final scores.

0:14:380:14:42

at controlling the ball with their bodies.
