Dizzy Goals

Football is one of the world’s most powerful communication tools–reaching young and old in every corner of the world. Gareth Bale, Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer, Liverpool FC, Spurs and Crystal Palace FC are among those taking part in the Dizzy Goals Challenge to raise awareness of The Global Goals.

We’re asking everyone to join the biggest team ever and help us to Tell Everyone about the Goals.

As long as participants say to camera that they are doing ‘A Dizzy Penalty for The Global Goals’ in advance of taking a spin, they can say whatever comes naturally

However, here are some suggested words..

Before Penalty
‘I’m (your name), I play for / I come from (your town) and this is my Dizzy Penalty for The Global Goals.’

After Penalty (If they miss)
‘I missed my goal so that world leaders don’t miss theirs.’

After Penalty (If they score)
‘If I can score a dizzy penalty then together we can all score The Global Goals.’
