Video: Kobe shows some soccer skills, drills penalty kick

NBA basketball star Kobe Bryant takes a penalty kick as part of a promotion during halftime of the 2011 Herbalife World Football Challenge soccer match between Barcelona and Manchester United in Landover Reuters

Kobe Bryant had his fantasy soccer weekend in Washington D.C.

On Sunday he played in the Mia Hamm-Nomar Garciaparra Celebrity Soccer Challenge and had two goals — well, the first was an own goal, but he atoned for it with a nice strike. He actually got some cheers from the crowd for his ball control and play.

Saturday night he was at the F.C. Barcelona match against Manchester United in our nation’s capital and at half time came out to take a penalty kick. And… well, watch for yourself, but that is a solid shot nobody is saving.
