NFL-dreaming Leicester back Fuchs tries his luck at long field goals (video)


Leicester City defender Christian Fuchs hasn’t been bashful about his future. Could the above photo be something we see on a different field?

Yes, he’s contracted to the Foxes for a few more seasons, but the Austrian back spends a lot of time in the United States with his kids.

And the 30-year-old Fuchs has said he’s interested in playing for the New York Cosmos of the NASL in his future.

Last April, however, Fuchs claimed he could hit a 60-yard field goal and harbored dreams of playing in the NFL.

On Thursday, came video of Fuchs taking his shots at long field goals, hitting from 50-yards before missing a 60-yarder wide left.

Watch the video here, as Fuchs talks shops at kicks the pigskin with London-born longtime New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora.
