World Cup 2022: Watch Sealife London Aquarium stingrays play underwater football

An unlikely team of football playing stingrays have caused a splash after teaming up at the Sealife London Aquarium to give Harry Kane a run for his money.

Rays have been filmed splashing, gliding and diving in the underwater enrichment game where a football filled with their favourite fish is used to stimulate natural behaviours

It comes ahead of England’s last 16 World Cup fixture against Senegal this Sunday.

Diving may be frowned on at the World Cup but in the display tank there’s no need for VAR. Six rays took part in the enrichment game which was refereed by expert aquarists.
