BLIND People Can Play Soccer?!?

– Welcome to What’s Inside, family. Today is a special video where I’m going to introduce you to the greatest World Cup championship that happens every four years. So today I came all the
way out here to Madrid to the IBSA Blind Football Championships. This is a world championships
that happens every four years. No joke, guys. These guys are blind or they have limited sight and they wear masks over their eyes so that they can’t see. They are running around playing football, or for us Americans, playing soccer. We’re gonna see how good they actually are and teach you guys a little bit about blind football. What the heck is it and how does it work and what are the rules and are these guys
actually good at football? We’re gonna find out. (inspirational music) Now you got the referee checking the eye masks of everybody. The goalie is one that leads them out because he is not blind and he does not have a mask over his eyes. (inspirational music) (announcer speaks in foreign language) The first match of the day that we are going to see
is Morocco versus Spain. Spain is the home team. That’s why everybody’s
celebrating right now. They obviously have the biggest crowd. In every one of the bleachers there are people celebrating Spain. They have flags. It’s real exciting. This is my first match I ever get to see. Spain is the home team. Brazil is the retuning champion. They won four years ago and
they want to defend that. This is so cool. All right, let’s just
take this in and learn. (inspirational music) (players speak in foreign language) (referee blows whistle) Okay, that was a really hard hit. Looks like he lost like
his front tooth, seriously. The guy lost two teeth, his
two front teeth, seriously. (crowd cheers) (upbeat music) Wow. That was legit. Before I used to think it was very unfair that the goalie can see, but now I can see that actually, the goal is small enough. His little box that he can come out is not that big, and these soccer players are really good. There’s a coach that’s
behind the opposite goal. He goes over and he takes this metal pole and he hits it along the post so that
they kinda get an idea. This is where it is. This is where the goal is. (speaks in foreign language) (upbeat music) You can’t tell me these guys are not soccer players
or football players. (crowd cheers) (upbeat music) (crowd cheers) Oh my God, gives me the chills every time. I’ve never seen anything like this. (upbeat music) I just walked up to somebody and said, “Do you know where I can get “a press badge so I don’t have to “stand with all the fans?” Gave me a badge. It’s the one time that having this camera with a mic on it and the Joby has actually paid off. (upbeat music) Right there, that’s game. (crowd cheers) (announcer speaks in foreign language) I just saw my first ever
blind football game. I’ve gotta tell ya, I have chills. So many amazing things. I am so glad that we did not just cut open this ball without me coming all the way out here
to Madrid to see them. I’m not much of a football fan. I’m not much of a soccer fan. But this, I can watch. The next game up is England versus Mali. England, this will be interesting to see. They are a big, big squad, and they have a giant documentary crew filming them with a huge red camera. You gotta see this camera, it’s huge. (“Younger and Smarter”

Darren, watch the ball. Out only, fight, alive you two! Alive, Darren, no drag, nothing, nothing. (referee blows whistle) That’s okay, left foot, right. Darren, walk forward and right. (“Younger and Smarter”
by Sebastian Forslund) (coaches yell out plays) – So I’ve watched two games today. Spain won the first one. England won the second one. I think both of them have
a chance to be contenders. Brazil and Argentina are the two toughest. So I am leaving now, but I
hope to be able to watch them. I’m gonna keep up on the
scores and see who wins. If I can find that
documentary once it publishes, it’ll probably take them six months or so to get it out, I will definitely link it down below so you guys can see more. This has been one of the most amazing sporting experience
that I’ve ever had. It gives me hope, and hopefully it gives some of you hope ’cause it’s not just about being blind. I’m gonna take these off. Think of all the people
that have had something, maybe a bad habit in their life or they have a disability or they suffer from mental illness. If you’re blind and you wanna play soccer and you wanna be on a world championship team, almost anything is possible in life. You can do it. (crowd cheers) There’s the goal. – All right, boys.

  1. I think this is cool because I know someone who is blind and people think they are limited to what they can do so it’s cool that they are appreciating what they can do

  2. im from morocco and i don't know my team is qualified and i don't know the game exist hahahah wawwwwww?? thank you daniel for let me know

  3. Please don't just link the documentary below when its released, but rather make a shout out video about it, as I suspect that this video will end up lost in the archives of youtube and out of the minds of many viewers.

  4. We haven’t met yet officially!! It is nice to meet you. We are here from The Jurgy’s. The green looked great on you. I love soccer.. never seen blind soccer!!

  5. Hey @whatsinside! You guys should try another sport for the blind called Goalball! Let me know please if you want to try it, we can try it if you’d like when you get back home! Please message if so, I would love to share/show the experience to you! 😀

  8. Blind soccer,so amazing and cool I wonder if the ball has something that the blind people can hear it and then kick it

  9. It's so cool how you guys show different things from around the world because if I haven't watch this video I would have never known that there was all professional blind soccer team thank you guys so much for making amazing videos

  10. whenever england plays in the world cup the refs are always in the wrong league so we get the blind ones

  11. They are more skilful I think than other soccer players as they are did so well and they can’t even see

  12. There should be something electronic in it that will always make sounds like a tough beeper so that when the ball is completely still they still know where it is. And maybe helmets? Or at least facemasks. Seems kinda dangerous. I would love to be a goalie

  13. MATCH REPORT:

    Spain (hosts) 🇪🇸 defeating Brazil 🇧🇷 3-0 England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 defeating Mali 🇲🇱 2-0 Spain 🇪🇸 maybe going to vs England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 or Morocco 🇲🇦

  14. They play better than the kids in America (No offence I 'm an American and I don't know that many kids who are good.

  15. I’m from England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🇬🇧🇬🇧🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🇬🇧🇬🇧.
    Haway the LADS

  16. I don't get it why they have a no-blind goalkeeper; all it takes is a good one and no matter how good the players are, the team with the best goalkeeper wins

  17. That were impressive teams ! Man I didn't know it was even possible to hit goals blindfolded. I had a chance to meet and watch an international cricket tournament for physically handicapped people. These people showing determination and dedication are truly fascinating.
