Well, it looks like Kobe Bryant is back in form.
On Saturday night, Bryant took to the streets of Brazil to play a little soccer with local guy Leandro Barbosa.
Bryant, who was spotted at Spain’s opening World Cup match against the Netherlands earlier this week and was tweeting during Italy’s victory against England last night, seems to be back to full health as showed his ball control on the street pitch.
“Fun day at the ‘Phenomenal House’ from Nike in Rio de Janeiro!” Barbosa wrote on his Instagram account. “It was really fun to play a little soccer with [Kobe Bryant] street soccer style … #BrazilianSwag!”
According to Barbosa, fellow Brazilian Anderson Varejao was also in attendance, along with the purple and gold’s very own Steve Nash.
