Rachel Yankey.

0:00:440:00:46

Top international footballer and all-round sporting superstar.

0:00:460:00:51

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

0:00:590:01:02

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

0:01:030:01:07

CHEERING

0:01:070:01:09

Today on my team we have number one, Isabel.

0:01:090:01:15

Oh, nice!

0:01:150:01:17

Number two, Brandon.

0:01:170:01:20

I like that one.

0:01:200:01:22

Number three, Riley.

0:01:220:01:25

Amazing.

0:01:260:01:27

Number four, Lulu.

0:01:280:01:30

That's it, keep dribbling.

0:01:300:01:34

Number five, Tasmain.

0:01:340:01:37

Well done.

0:01:370:01:38

Number six, Tula.

0:01:400:01:41

Great skills.

0:01:430:01:45

Also joining us are Benny and Rex.

0:01:450:01:47

-Yay!

-Hooray!

0:01:470:01:48

So, that's today's team.

0:01:500:01:52

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

0:01:540:01:57

THEY CHEER

0:01:570:01:58

Here's a question for you. When you're kicking or passing

0:01:580:02:01

a football, which foot do you prefer to use?

0:02:010:02:05

-Ooh. Brandon?

-This one.

0:02:050:02:07

Fantastic, that's your right foot.

0:02:070:02:09

-Isabel?

-My left one.

-Brilliant.

0:02:090:02:12

Some players, just like me, prefer to use their left foot.

0:02:120:02:15

And some players prefer to use their right.

0:02:150:02:18

There's no right or wrong foot to use.

0:02:180:02:20

It's really important that we learn to use both feet

0:02:200:02:24

and that's what we're going to be learning about today.

0:02:240:02:27

There are three main things to remember when we're using both feet.

0:02:270:02:31

We need to look at the ball.

0:02:310:02:34

We need to move the ball with our usual foot.

0:02:340:02:38

And then swap it to move the ball with our other foot.

0:02:380:02:42

Look at the ball.

0:02:420:02:43

Move the ball with your usual foot.

0:02:430:02:46

And swap to move the ball with your other foot.

0:02:460:02:50

OK, guys, let's go and have a practise.

0:02:500:02:53

I've given you some different coloured boots.

0:02:560:02:59

One boot is orange and the other boot is blue.

0:02:590:03:01

I've placed out some coloured cones.

0:03:010:03:04

One at a time, you need to dribble up and down the cones.

0:03:040:03:07

But as you pass the blue cones, dribble using your blue boot.

0:03:070:03:11

And as you pass the orange cones, dribble using your orange boot.

0:03:110:03:16

Isabel, off you go.

0:03:160:03:17

Good. That's it. Using your blue boot on the blue cones. Well done.

0:03:170:03:22

-Fantastic start.

-Orange boot for the orange cones.

-Nicely done, Isabel.

0:03:220:03:27

-Which boot to use?

-Speedy stuff from Brandon, he's making this look easy.

0:03:270:03:32

-Some nice control here.

-Fantastic.

0:03:320:03:35

Make sure you use the correct colour. That's it.

0:03:360:03:40

Well done, Tasmain, that's it, use that blue boot.

0:03:400:03:43

So, lots of little touches with that blue boot.

0:03:430:03:46

-Brilliant ball control from the team.

-Well done.

0:03:460:03:49

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

0:03:490:03:53

When using both feet, remember to look at the ball.

0:03:530:03:57

Move it with your usual foot.

0:03:570:04:00

And swap feet to move the ball with your other foot.

0:04:000:04:05

I'm going to challenge you to a penalty shoot-out.

0:04:050:04:08

You grab a ball and shoot at the goals in front of you.

0:04:080:04:11

But before you do, I'm going to shout out either orange or blue

0:04:110:04:15

and you need to kick with that colour boot. OK?

0:04:150:04:18

The first two, grab a ball, let's go.

0:04:180:04:20

OK, let's go...orange.

0:04:200:04:24

-Hooray!

-Nice shot.

0:04:240:04:26

OK, next two, get yourself a ball. Let's go...orange.

0:04:260:04:31

It can be tricky using the foot you're not used to

0:04:310:04:34

but it's a good skill to practise.

0:04:340:04:36

Let's go...blue.

0:04:360:04:39

-Yes!

-Smashing stuff.

0:04:390:04:42

-What a goal. And nicely controlled.

-Brilliant.

0:04:420:04:45

Can you guys cheer them on at home? Let's go...blue.

0:04:450:04:49

Tasmain lines it up.

0:04:490:04:51

Oh, ho-ho. Blue boot.

0:04:510:04:52

-Top stuff.

-Yay. Well done.

0:04:520:04:56

And a lovely kick from Isabel.

0:04:560:04:58

Yay! Orange.

0:04:580:05:01

Wow, Benny, you're great at using both your feet.

0:05:020:05:05

Thanks, Rex, I haven't always been.

0:05:050:05:08

Do you remember the time we tried Freddie's football challenge?

0:05:080:05:12

HE LAUGHS

0:05:120:05:14

Oh, yeah!

0:05:140:05:15

Welcome to Pupton Park, where the Footy Pups

0:05:160:05:19

are competing in groundskeeper Pete's one-footed football

0:05:190:05:23

challenge and Benny Barkham has made a strong start.

0:05:230:05:27

He's leaping over the hay bale hurdles...

0:05:270:05:30

Ooh. Ha-ha.

0:05:300:05:31

..through the sunflower slalom.

0:05:340:05:37

And past the spinning scareflea.

0:05:370:05:40

And into Pete's potting shed.

0:05:420:05:46

Here comes speedy pup.

0:05:460:05:48

I just need to kick a ball into my bucket. Ha-ha!

0:05:480:05:52

And Benny wins the challenge.

0:05:520:05:54

With my amazing puppy foot, I can always score the winner.

0:05:560:06:01

It gives me great pleasure to present

0:06:010:06:04

this one-footed football challenge trophy to Benny.

0:06:040:06:09

Where did that come from?

0:06:090:06:11

I found it at the bottom of me lost property box.

0:06:110:06:15

It's a bit whiffy, mind.

0:06:150:06:17

-Not so fast, Pete.

-Eh?

0:06:170:06:19

The Pups haven't finished their one-footed football challenge yet.

0:06:190:06:23

To complete the full challenge, you need to go round the course again.

0:06:230:06:28

But this time, you must use your other foot.

0:06:280:06:31

He-he! Good thinking, Freddie.

0:06:310:06:33

Whoa!

0:06:330:06:35

But, Freddie, I always kick and shoot with my right foot.

0:06:370:06:41

So that means this time you've got to use your left.

0:06:410:06:45

Just like Pickles.

0:06:450:06:47

And, Rex, Rozzie and Geraldine, you can try using your right foot.

0:06:470:06:51

Will do, Freddie!

0:06:510:06:54

Oh, bones, I can't remember which foot is which.

0:06:540:06:57

If my right foot is so good, why would I want to use my left one?

0:06:570:07:01

All the best players can use both feet to play football, laddie.

0:07:010:07:05

It means they're better at controlling the ball

0:07:050:07:08

-and can shoot and pass in any direction.

-Oh...

0:07:080:07:12

While the Footy Pups swap feet,

0:07:120:07:14

the Cheer-fleaders are also trying something different.

0:07:140:07:18

-They're having a backwards day.

-Yay, it's backwards day!

0:07:180:07:21

They're jumping backwards and they've got

0:07:210:07:24

their shoes on their hands and their pom-poms on their feet.

0:07:240:07:28

OK, Cheer-fleaders, time to show off our backwards, turvy-topsy triangle.

0:07:280:07:34

Yay!

0:07:340:07:36

Ready? I'll catch you with my feet.

0:07:360:07:39

-Whoa!

-Missed. Keep trying, fleas.

0:07:390:07:43

-Ah!

-Nope.

0:07:430:07:44

-Whee!

-Almost.

-Whoa!

0:07:440:07:46

Oh, dear, let's hope the Cheer-fleaders can finish their

0:07:460:07:49

backwards performance before the Pups finish their one-footed race.

0:07:490:07:54

Flea, two, one...

0:07:540:07:55

HE BLOWS THE WHISTLE

0:07:550:07:57

They're off, and those hay bale hurdles

0:07:570:07:59

are proving a real challenge.

0:07:590:08:01

Now the Pups can't dribble with their favourite foot.

0:08:010:08:05

Whoa... Oh!

0:08:050:08:07

This is silly. Why can't I just play with my right foot?

0:08:070:08:11

It's my favourite!

0:08:110:08:13

Rah! Ha-ha! They both look the same to me.

0:08:130:08:16

I don't know my right from my left. Whoopee!

0:08:160:08:20

Whoo, wa-ha!

0:08:210:08:22

Oh, Rex can play brilliantly with both feet.

0:08:220:08:27

Ruff! Oh...

0:08:270:08:29

Mind me sunflowers!

0:08:290:08:30

Sorry!

0:08:300:08:32

Whoa!

0:08:320:08:33

Ha-ha, go, Pups!

0:08:340:08:37

You're all wonderful one-footed footballers.

0:08:370:08:41

-Whoa-ho!

-Coming through! Whoa!

0:08:410:08:44

Ah! Whoa...

0:08:440:08:47

Aaah! Oof!

0:08:470:08:49

Sorry, Freddie.

0:08:490:08:51

My left foot will never be as good as my right one.

0:08:510:08:54

Nonsense, laddie.

0:08:540:08:56

If you practise using both feet to play football,

0:08:560:09:00

you'll be able to move quickly and surprise the other players.

0:09:000:09:04

But it's impossible!

0:09:040:09:07

While Benny takes a tumble, the other Pups have passed through

0:09:070:09:11

Pete's potting shed and are heading towards the finish.

0:09:110:09:14

Look, Pickles, I found these coloured boots.

0:09:140:09:17

Now I know which foot is which. Ha-ha!

0:09:170:09:20

Orange is left, blue is right. Orange is left, blue is right.

0:09:200:09:24

Orange is left, blue is right.

0:09:240:09:27

Gah!

0:09:270:09:28

-Uh-oh.

-Whoo!

0:09:280:09:30

Thanks, Rex, you've got the right foot but the wrong bucket.

0:09:300:09:34

Oh, bones.

0:09:340:09:36

Oh, I'm miles behind everybody.

0:09:360:09:39

Maybe I need to kick the ball harder.

0:09:390:09:42

Ruff!

0:09:420:09:44

Oh...

0:09:440:09:45

Go, steady, ready!

0:09:450:09:47

THEY CHEER

0:09:470:09:49

Da-ta!

0:09:510:09:52

Sorry, Cheer-fleaders.

0:09:540:09:56

I can't play football properly when I can't use my favourite foot.

0:09:560:10:01

Don't worry, Benny, we're trying something new too.

0:10:010:10:04

Do to thing tricky a is, new something trying.

0:10:040:10:07

That doesn't make any sense.

0:10:070:10:10

-Hang on, you're chanting backwards.

-He-he-he!

0:10:100:10:14

Do to thing tricky a is, new something trying.

0:10:140:10:18

Trying something new is a tricky thing to do.

0:10:180:10:21

Too it do can you, practice, practice, practice with but.

0:10:210:10:26

But with practice, practice, practice, you can do it too.

0:10:260:10:30

So to get better I just need to keep trying. Thanks, Cheer-fleaders!

0:10:300:10:35

Problem no, Benny.

0:10:350:10:37

Whoa!

0:10:370:10:39

Time to finish this course.

0:10:390:10:41

Ruff-ruffoo! Ha-ha!

0:10:410:10:43

Ruff, ruff, ruff! Ha-ha! Ho-ho!

0:10:430:10:47

-Whoa...hey!

-Come on, Benny!

0:10:470:10:50

Whoohoo! Ha-ha! Hey-hey!

0:10:500:10:52

We knew you could do it, laddie!

0:10:520:10:54

-Hooray!

-He-he!

-You've done it!

-Ruff!

0:10:540:10:58

Grr...

0:11:000:11:01

When you can kick with both your feet you'll be impossible to beat!

0:11:010:11:06

Benny, this do can you!

0:11:060:11:09

You can do this, Benny! Ruff!

0:11:090:11:12

Oh...

0:11:120:11:14

And Benny wins the challenge.

0:11:160:11:18

You did it, laddie!

0:11:180:11:19

Keep practising and you'll be brilliant at playing with both feet.

0:11:190:11:24

-Just like me, ha-ha!

-Hey, that's me trophy!

0:11:240:11:29

ALL: Oh, Rex!

0:11:310:11:33

Orange boot, blue boot. Orange boot, blue boot.

0:11:350:11:39

It's so much easier to remember which foot to kick with

0:11:390:11:42

when I've got different coloured boots.

0:11:420:11:45

-Yeah, it's good to practise kicking with both feet.

-Whoa, whoa...

0:11:450:11:50

-Hi, guys.

-Hi, Rachel.

-Hi, Rachel.

-Oh, argh...

-What's the matter?

0:11:500:11:54

I tried your idea of using different colours to remember which

0:11:540:11:58

foot to kick the ball with but I just can't do it.

0:11:580:12:01

Hmm, let me see.

0:12:010:12:03

Ha-ha! Oh, Rachel, you tied your laces together in a big knot!

0:12:030:12:08

No wonder you can't kick the ball.

0:12:080:12:12

Silly me!

0:12:120:12:13

Do you guys remember how to use both feet?

0:12:130:12:16

Look at the ball, move it with your usual foot,

0:12:170:12:21

and swap feet to move the ball with your other foot.

0:12:210:12:24

-OK, guys, who fancies a game?

-Yeah!

0:12:260:12:29

So, I've split you up into two teams.

0:12:290:12:32

-We've got the Zebras - give me a cheer.

-Yeah!

0:12:320:12:35

-And we've got the Giraffes - give me a cheer.

-Yeah!

0:12:350:12:38

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

0:12:380:12:44

Come and have a look.

0:12:440:12:45

To play this game, you need to change feet quickly.

0:12:450:12:48

When the whistle blows,

0:12:480:12:50

one player dribbles the ball into the blue zone using their blue boot.

0:12:500:12:54

When they're in the orange zone, they can only use their orange boot.

0:12:540:12:58

When dribbling in the blue zone, they can only use their blue boot.

0:12:580:13:03

Once past the coloured zones they can shoot at the goal,

0:13:030:13:06

run back to their team-mates and it's the next player's turn.

0:13:060:13:10

The winners of this game will be the team who scores the most goals

0:13:100:13:14

before the final whistle blows.

0:13:140:13:16

-Are we ready?

-Yeah!

0:13:160:13:19

Three, two, one...

0:13:190:13:20

They're off! Everyone's concentrating hard.

0:13:200:13:23

That's it, make sure you use the right colour foot

0:13:230:13:27

in the right colour area.

0:13:270:13:29

Lulu! Lulu!

0:13:290:13:30

Now you can use any boot to score.

0:13:300:13:32

-It's in!

-Yeah, great goals!

0:13:320:13:35

High-fives all round as the next two set off.

0:13:350:13:39

You're in the blue zone, use your blue foot.

0:13:390:13:42

You're in the orange zone, use the orange boot.

0:13:420:13:45

Riley! Riley!

0:13:450:13:46

He goes for goal, he scores!

0:13:460:13:48

Yay! Quickly, Riley, run, run, run!

0:13:480:13:50

Tula! Tula!

0:13:500:13:52

Oh, unlucky.

0:13:520:13:53

There's always another chance, though.

0:13:530:13:56

Isabel changes boot beautifully. Can she send it home?

0:13:560:13:59

Yes! Tasmain sets off.

0:13:590:14:02

Swaps feet as he goes.

0:14:030:14:05

It's another goal for the Giraffes! Fantastic footwork.

0:14:050:14:09

There's not long left now. This is all to play for.

0:14:090:14:13

Yeah, well done!

0:14:140:14:16

Sensational stuff in the final stages.

0:14:160:14:19

Benny and Rex are on the edge of their seats!

0:14:190:14:22

Who's going to win today?

0:14:220:14:24

Let's have a replay. The teams were brilliant at using both feet,

0:14:250:14:29

in the orange zone with their orange boots

0:14:290:14:32
