It's looks like the lads on the International Space Station were having some serious craic to celebrate the start of the World Cup, indulging in a little zero gravity football in what looks like possibly the most fun thing that humanity has ever accomplished.

Astronauts Steve Swanson, Reid Wiseman and Alexander Gerst beamed down this video from a few hundred thousand kilometres above our heads as they showed off their football skills and knocked in a few goals. Some impressive moves too, anyone know if any of these guys have an Irish grandmother?
