With the World Cup upon us today We’ll be testing three iconic footballs against each other to do just that we’ve also got along with us today Two iconic footballers. I mean Toby let’s take a look at some details of these footballs First up. It’s the Jabulani probably the most controversial World Cup ball ever each day in 2010 This one came with a different goalkeeper complaint and an obscenely good Diego forlán goal If I remember correctly the eight panels on this ball were thermally bonded together for the first time which meant that less drag acted on The ball this in turn meant a lot of footballers were over hitting it finally the surface on this ball is Noticeably smooth even with this raised pattern that’s sort of all over it in conclusion A lot of fun for knuckle balls not so much for Rob green secondly We have the brazuca very much a return to normality after the Jabulani But still firmly bonded together instead of stitched Most noticeable thing about the brazuca is the incredibly finer texture on the surface this meant the ball had a much more stable trajectory Than the Jabulani and although six panels meant the ball was more round It acted like a normal football quite disappointingly for most of us viewers It also had a greater resistance to moisture which seems a strange thing to focus on during the World Cup in Brazil but perfect for the next World Cup in Scotland Lastly there’s the Telstar fits a Russian World Cup nicely. Absolutely no nonsense taken again Thermally bonded with six panels, but the panels are a totally different shape on this board It’s got a very similar surface and supposedly it acts very similarly through the air to the brazuca It also travels 10% less over long distant kicks compared to the brazuca and on less than the Jabulani. That’s quite a big thing So first stop what I thought I’d do is a bounce test. So we’re in a bar from high up in our house But whose are supposed to be at between 8 & 9 so I’m going to pump it up a little bit It’s currently sitting at 3 pounds per square inch physics I would well, I thought the brazuca Zacky on 8 to start off perfectly so nice. I’ve just led a hair out Health store is also on eight. Let’s go So if the pressures right I’m actually quite support like that does seem to be quite a big difference there between slightly between the Jabulani and the Telstar You know, that could be the difference between the ball bouncing in and the ball bouncing out in Lampard’s gold. Yep Still not over it. Okay, moving on to the challenges with Simon and Toby impossible to these challenges We’re going to be using an app called my cakes which will allow us to visually show how accurate these balls are It’s a football app which records your shots anyone can use it in a kickabout with your mates So it’s perfect for today this challenge is gonna be kind of testing out how much the balls fly and how easy they are to Play long passes at the same time testing out how good they offer volley Someone’s gonna be stood behind the goal and I check the ball Hopefully somewhere into the de Toby’s gun and goal will be stood inside the D and if you can take as many touches as you Like it can bounce but you just got to get like a volley – oh my god. I Say we go jabulani first Africa All right, first up is the Jabulani, all right Oh, how have you done that? All right, okay Ah Yeah, we didn’t score a great catalogue of goals with the Jabulani in this section We were trying to make it as fair as possible So like stick into a time limit we make up for it in long shorts, but we have to move on All right, next up the Brazil World Cup football the brazuca Ready yeah, I’m ready from Oh Oh this one just feels more like a football left bay I like this boy, you know I’ve got a no does the way this doesn’t hit the back of the net get to anyone else surely I’m not the only one on the spectrum All right, this is this year’s Russia World Cup the TEL stir or Telstar At Elstad obviously new so not many people scored decent goal for them and they still haven’t Good one Wow There does seem to be some conclusions from this at this point That one’s our beach ball, but you know, it’s kind of a notorious for that the brazuca feels the best so far I felt like I could control where was aiming it a little bit more and this one’s kind of felt normal. So Moving on to the section of long shots knuckle balls and curve is the thing. We’re really looking for So how they move in the air when you strike them over long distance. Yeah That’s so sweet, you know 500 pounds the Jabulani cost me on eBay though I got scammed for it didn’t come the first time. So I thought I’ve been scammed by four one four Nigerian prince Luckily it came To make up for the video last year. Here’s some footage of it Oh, it’s better than everything I did last year Yeah, yes, oh we’ve seen this before I Can only apologize yes I’m lucky so I won’t put it in. Don’t worry. I’m gonna put it Now onto the brazuca this wouldn’t cause many problems we obviously got the famous hammer sword Regas volley We haven’t really found it to be an issue so far. So it’s really matter. It’s just a good football I get bored and go. Oh Oh, oh the glove rip look we did the power Yes Come on See Moving on to the Telstar no one really knows how this ball moves of knuckles yet can be very much groundbreaking Discoveries this one I can feel this one’s gonna be a banger, you know Well, well you were oh That’s a great save That was a bang Triggered Oh Yes I’m gonna go one more decent goal. Yeah, which is right now Come on So after this, I think Toby felt he needed to take me down a peg or two and he did right let me loose Should be interesting All right So at the end of this sort of shooting session we seem to have found the Jabulani as everyone was expecting It’s kind of the one that you really can’t predict where it’s going at times. I just like this one You’re most consistent wore that one this one seems to like arrow when you hit it. I’m sorry to disappoint It doesn’t seem that exciting I feel like they’ve just taken all the goalkeepers complaints and decided they’re just gonna make an overall for this walk up in this section We’re going to be trying up penalties to see how the ball moves particularly when you’re trying to be accurate with it now This is the challenge in which we’ll be using my kicks to help us The challenge itself is call out penalties myself against Simon but with this app We’ll be able to see like the exact area of the goal that these Bulls end up in after each shot the app will call out the speed and the section of the goal that are all ended up in bottom right at 71 km/h And only if we called out that section and we scored do we get the point? Oh, it’s not easy So basically you can play against your friends with this app, and it’s all foaming real-life football So I’m gonna do today is obviously play against Simon. So we start on this home screen I’m just gonna challenge a friend and I will challenge Simon then I can see Simon’s profile 77 % conversion rate mediocre coming from the penalty guru himself Nervous laughter. Anyway, all that’s left to do is go up against each other. We’ve got five seconds to aim at here There is an unsavable little area that’s like a kind of a bull size and the top of the goal There’s only earlier they’ve taken like 500 kicks with this app. And there’s only been like six of them scored So if we get one of them Seems will ensue Oh Can we find out for sure if that went top right wait, they didn’t say top right? Why didn’t it say That was about the same distance away from top right or top right again At 80 kilometres per hour top left. Oh Oh, oh no, it’s the ball don’t lift this book Bottom right at 71 kilometres. All right, that’s one. No you win boring and for the ball corners Same you said top Chris said I’m being boring Bottom right at 86 kilometres per hour. We managed to hit the ball where we were aiming once there the next ball will be better Well, it can’t be any worse Ah, no, you know what it’s not the ball, it’s Chris, that’d be a bang We’re bad, I’m gonna take a leaf out Simon’s book stop being boring and At 88 Halfway through I’ve given you a head stop assuming you did I’m trying to do a whole dramatic comeback. Yes Okay, okay, yes, yes I needed that so bad bottom left that’s 83 oh That’s nice Don’t you thing that was top ah, no Now for the Telstar easiest I feel I’m scoring on five He said boom right tough life yea-ah Oh Unsavable, all right. Oh I do believe that one walls actually say table But more Great pen was a vixen see actually see where we’re aiming We passed that one off top, right and just because I’m winning. I’m just gonna put a lot of power in his oh, oh Top right? Yes, Tomy I Chosen to go this way. Let’s go anyway Oh That’s not fortnight celebration I mean just do it one more plate see what is the best book that’s what this is about. It’s not about the competition Get away with that I mean, there’s a good pen conclusions on the ball famously didn’t really know as much as we need to Yeah, the mouse the the Jabulani I do actually think there was a noticeable difference. Yeah but It was a beach ball and then two footballs. I like saving that one So in conclusion Simon came out with a narrow victory the boring old man Another aspect of my kicks is you can compare your penalty conversion rate against professional footballers. So literally Messi and Ronaldo, etc I think Simon’s doing that in his video. I do honestly think this app is actually really cool I’ve been waiting for like a real-life football app to come out for a while And I think it’s definitely worth a try the link to download. It is in the description below I would recommend trying it out finally for this video I’m gonna try a little heading challenge, obviously the miters and the Somme the eCos of the world they you know They so I thought I could give you a velly Unscientific opinion as to how painful they are and how they feel to head of the ball. I’m also just gonna say a huge Thank you to Luc. You sent me this invincible season away shot. It was like the first shot I properly had as a kid select the material and stuff. It brings back like seriously nostalgia Thank you house is having a bit work on it done at the moment. So I’m tense to hold that Dad almost just fell into Ah All right, we bought two small goals, okay, they’re not big enough Gone through my five attempts, but I do just want to score a goal Forty minute long video to edit here and it should have been two minutes Want the dementia The Jabulani in the toast aren’t really firmly different the brazuca caliper Was like a slap but the rest of them So after all that the Telstar in conclusion looks pretty good it’s stormed the bounce test it behaved like a fairly normal football in the shooting challenges while still knocking and was pretty nice to header as well is very similar to the brazuca in movement and in Appearance but just more normal. It really does seem like they’ve made good choices this time around something I could really learn a thing or two from having just spent a hundred quid on a football that behaves and looks Exactly like those ones you can get for a tenner down at Sports Direct I would still pick the Jabulani though for a video just because it’s hilarious to see people trying to play with it The Telstar is definitely the best out of these three other bazookas quite interesting to kick It’s like an arrow as we said in a curls really nicely. But yeah, it doesn’t do much else and it’s quite hard Jabulani, a lot of fun and the TEL stairs just kind of a normal football. So there’s a sort of my conclusions Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed the video Please make sure to leave a like and subscribe if you have enjoyed this one. It has taken a lot of effort It’s a very long video. So I appreciate anyone who’s lasted this long But yeah, there’s gonna be so much more World Cup content coming out soon, and I’m very very excited I literally cannot wait World Cup fever is here. And yeah, it’s gonna be a good year Thank you so much for watching and I shall see you later

  1. Sorry for the section from 14:12–14:37 with weird audio over the top. I got copyright claimed for a song I sourced from the "NoCopyrightSounds" channel…and they won't reply to me to get it unclaimed. Had to stick music over the top or Sony Music take every bit of my revenue from this video. Hope you all understand x

  2. “Two iconic footballers Chris and Tobi “
    After seeing the video
    It’s more like
    “Two iconic footballers Simon and Tobi”

  3. That keeper tho… Smh, I don't know if he doesn't want to dive because of the field conditions but man, a brick for sure
