He's drifted on docks, slid around San Francisco and now internet rally star Ken Block has played a game of football with his car.

In a twist on his hit web video series - Gymkhana - Block has joined forces with Brazilian football star Neymar Jr to create a new sport - Foothkana.

The video pits Neymar Jr against Block in a game of football skills - Neymar Jr using his feet and Block in his turbocharged, all-wheel drive Ford Fiesta HFHV (Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle).

Also joining in are football freestylers Andrew Henderson, Sean Garnier and Lassi Hurskainen; the latter survives a carefully choreographed close call with Block's Ford.

Although the film is designed to promote the Block and Neymar's mutual motor oil sponsor, which also backs this year's Fifa World Cup in Brazil, it is produced and directed by the same team behind the rest of Block's Gymkhana films.
