The courses will encourage youngsters to try a different skill each week, including dribbling, passing, shooting, goalkeeping and defending, and play games such as the Ronaldo Dribbling Game, which encourages children to learn through play.

Paul Cooper from the Give Us Back Our Game campaign, which aims to promote high-quality sporting and activity experiences for children, has helped Hargreaves produce the Football Football World Cup initiative.

He says: "The children are central to the program. It’s essential that they are always having fun, always engaged and always learning new skills.

"Children should have the freedom to play and learn without pressure from coaches or parents."
