Karim, Kern and Jonathon, the four qualifiers from south.
search is on for the countrys most skillfull footballer.
Last week, The Red Bull Reaccion series, which seeks to
unearth the countrys skill footballers, started in
San Fernando and Tobago.
The series gives ballers a platform to perform
and battle for the bragging rights as the best free-style
footballer in T&T.
The rules are quite simple as within the Reacción
area, two players challenge each other with freestyle tricks
to determine who has the best moves.
Each player has 30 seconds to show his skills, then must
pass the ball to the opponent. If after three minutes no
clear winner emerges, the battle continues until one player
makes a major mistake and cannot react.
Players are judged on style, control and creativity.
At the end of the prequalifiers, the best 16 players will
qualify for the local finals at Mobs 2, Chaguaramas on September
The national winner will then go on to represent T&T
at the Reacción Final in Buenos Aires, Argentina
in November, where, they will compete against the top qualifiers
from the 16 other participating countries namely Mexico,
Guatemala, Ecuador, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama,
Dominican Republic, Cuba, Columbia, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia,
Chile, Brazil and Argentina.
Prequalifiers continue today at Adam Smith Square, corner
of Carlos St. and Ariapita Ave, Woodbrook, from 8pm
