Diego Rivarola at Danone Nations Cup
In his role as ambassador for the Danone Nations Cup under 12 soccer event, former Universidad de Chile striker Diego Rivarola was given a footbag and put on a short show for the crowd gathered.

“Gokú”, who scored more than 100 goals for Universidad de Chile spent the morning signing autographs for excited fans. Rivarola was not the only person to get involved with footbag, with some of the young players having a turn. The footbags were donated by Flying Clipper helping with education programs in Chile.

Daniel Boyle teamed up with freestyle football player Cata Vega, who represented Chile at the 2012 Red Bull Street Style in Italy, to give an impromptu demonstration.

The team that wins the tournament will represent Chile at the Danone Nations Cup in London later in the year.

Next week there will be some more footbag interactions at junior tournaments, with Daniel Boyle giving a demonstration at the Rumbo al Milk Cup 2013 tournament in Colina. Daniel will be giving English lessons to the winning team to prepare them for the journey to Northern Ireland.
