Barefoot teens in Indonesia play football with FIREBALLS


A boarding school in eastern Indonesia played a dangerous game of 'fire football' where barefoot students kicked about a burning ball.

Footage shows a group of teenagers dribbling a ball on fire across a pavement in Probolinggo on June 1.

The ball is made from dried coconut fruit and soaked in gasoline to later set it alight.

A group of five people, four players and one goalkeeper, take part in the game, that consists of two parts lasting 10 minutes.

Fire football is usually played during Islamic celebrations such as Muharram, Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr.
