    Football fever is everywhere. Even elephants in Thailand are excited about the upcoming World Cup tournament. The huge mammals have showed off their football skills in a warm-up match against a team of schoolchildren.

    The elephants were painted with various national flags ahead of the match at a camp in central Thailand. Despite their considerable size advantage, even three elephant goalies couldn't stop one student from scoring. The match concluded after 30 minutes with the score tied at 3-all. The event was held to promote the 2014 World Cup which is set to kick off in Brazil on June 12.
