By now, thanks to the rise in social media popularity! Talents have a platform to showcase their abilities to the world. Thus, by now, we all have seen videos of athletes performing amazing football skills! Some football skills and tricks were incredible, to the point that they were not seen performed before, even though famous footballers like Neymar or even Ronaldo.
Therefore, with the prevalence of social media athletes performing these incredible football tricks, they are challenging these world known top football players in the freestyle aspect of football. These social media athletes are labelled as ‘football freestylers’ in which it refers to players that are involved with playing a sport dedicated to football skills known as ‘football freestyle’.

With the huge amount of football freestylers we have seen so far on the internet, there are very few that stand out from the crowd!
An ideal example of a football freestyler standing tremendously out is, the one and only Dr. Ali AlSaqoby! thanks to his rising worldwide popularity, we managed to take a peek into his extraordinary life. To see that he is more than just a football freestyle player! But a perfect example of an inspiring overachiever!
Dr. Ali AlSaqoby is a top football freestyle pioneer from Kuwait, not only his soccer skills makes him exceptional but also his ability to manage to be a leading dentist. Not to mention his ability to maintain his fame as a social media influencer and be an admired public figure, by local and worldwide audiences!

Football freestyle being an independent sport means that it has its own federation, and Dr. Ali AlSaqoby as one of the most knowledgeable of this sport got qualified to be an integral part of it.
Currently taking the lead to revolutionize the sport in the region. By starting up official championships, workshops and raising awareness to this sport through his exceptionally large following.
Last year he organized the national Redbull Street Style world qualifier championship, where the winner was chosen by him as a head judge. The winner had the opportunity to represent Kuwait in the world championships that was held back then at Miami, Florida through RedBullStreetyle.
