Do You Want To Watch Lucas Lasso A Cow? Of Course You Do

New, comments

Lucas Leiva didn't make Brazil's World Cup squad, so he had to find a way to occupy his time this summer. Looks like he succeeded rather magnificently.

It's no secret: Lucas Leiva is awesome, both on and off the pitch.

Since his injuries this past couple of years kept him from his best form and thus out of Brazil's World Cup squad, Lucas has the chance to go home for awhile to rest and relax. That of course means finding ways to keep himself entertained, which it looks like he has done in fine fashion:

No, your eyes aren't tricking you: that's Lucas. Roping a cow. Like a boss.

Liverpool's midfielder owns and maintains a cattle ranch in Brazil and spends what free time he has on it during the summer. There's been pictures of him doing various tasks or just standing around on it looking adorable, but I think this is the first time we've gotten this kind of action video from him. It's pretty amazing, and the execution was unsurprising in its quality coming from Lucas.

Because after all, for a guy like him, what's the point in doing something if you can't be awesome at it?
