Spain doesn’t just rule the world in soccer, but they’re also champions in Subbuteo, the table soccer game that has long been a tradition in England and around the world.
In this 30 minute documentary entitled “Can You Flick It? A Subbuteo Story,” there’s plenty of fascinating video to watch including armed police coming in to break up a fight at a Subbuteo tournament, as well as some of the history of this fabled game.
It’s a perfect video to watch on an international break.
