Prince Harry shows on German TV that soccer is not his thing
Harry joined host Katrin Müller-Hohenstein, Federal Defense Minister Boris Pistorius, and former German national team player Gerald Asamoah on the pitch.
The guests were challenged to kick a ball and try to get it into two holes, the goal was a short distance away, a seemingly simple task. However, Harry’s lack of skill soon became apparent.
After multiple attempts, the prince failed to score once. His shots went wide, much to the amusement of the studio audience. In contrast, Pistorius managed to put the balls in the hole on two occasions.
Harry took his failures in stride, joking with the host and pundits between shots.
The founder of the Invictus Games is better known for his passion for polo and his charity work than for his soccer skills.
