So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Black Mamba will be partaking in a charity soccer game in Washington DC.
We get more from The Los Angeles Times:
The Lakers star is listed as one of the participants planning to play in the Celebrity Soccer Challenge on July 31 at Kastles Stadium in Washington D.C., an event sponsored by former U.S. women’s soccer player Mia Hamm and her husband, ex-Dodger Nomar Garciaparra. Bryant’s certainly no stranger to the pitch, as he played soccer growing up in Italy and is an avid fan of the Premier League’s Barcelona and the Brazilian national team. He also attended the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
We wish him all the luck and hopefully Kobe will be able to show off his skills on the soccer pitch.
