There are also notably roles for Premier League stars Eden Hazard, Wayne Rooney, Tim Howard and David Luiz.

The four-minute clip was uploaded to Nike's official YouTube account on Friday. It depicts a group of youngsters playing on a field, before imagination takes control and the action breaks out into a star-studded match in front of thousands.

Nike have really pulled out all the stops with this short film, which encourages viewers to "Risk Everything", and is produced with the style and swagger that football fans have come to know and love in recent years.

As well as being a phenomenal piece of football footage, the advert is additionally sprinkled with some fine moments of humour throughout.
