VIDEO: Puppy confused when AZ Alkmaar’s Calvin Stengs kicks ball through its legs

Nutmegs pooch.


In this clip, AZ Alkmaar winger Calvin Stengs nutmegs a puppy, leaving the young dog confused as to where the ball has disappeared to.

The Dutch U21 international had been enjoying a productive season at the AFAS Stadion before football went on hold for the coronavirus outbreak, with 8 goals in 21 games across all competitions.


Keeping himself sharp in the comfort of his own home, he took on the pooch in a training exercise and managed to keep hold of the ball in the face of keen pursuit.

Eventually he knocks the ball through the dog’s legs, eliciting an adorably confused reaction.
