World Cup fever is out of this world (boo pun)!

International Space Station Commander Steve Swanson and astronaut Reid Wiseman, both from the United States, and German astronaut Alexander Gerst get their fútbol on in outer space. I’m pretty sure that the ISS is the only place where I could actually perform a bicycle kick of any sort and I doubt it would be as good as what these guys were able to do.

The United States and Germany are both in the same group, along with Portugal and Ghana, a.k.a. the “group of death” so it should be an interesting few when the two teams match up on the pitch.
