It's World Cup time, so a soccer-themed Video Pick Of the Week is in order! This week, we show off some adorable baby elephants playing soccer!Baby Elephants Playing Soccer

These little elephants live in the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya. They've each been rescued from dire circumstances, but now live healthy and happy lives with a little extra help!

Part of their health regimen involves play activities to keep them sharp and provide a little exercise, and these guys have some amazing soccer skills!

Last year, the elephants received a visited for Manchester City player Yaya Toure, and seemed to pick up some tricks along the way.

In the video, we see their fancy footwork, and even a game with the elephants dressed in tartan cloaks as they face off against the keepers from the wildlife trust!

By the way, did you see that One Direction's Louis Tomlinson just bought a soccer team? Learn more about that here!
