The Euros are finally on the horizon, but you need look no further than TikTok if you're after a football fix.
Despite only playing amateur football for 10+ years, Callum 'The Dragon' truly wears the TikTok crown - known as the best goalkeeper in TikTok football history.
Callum started posting content of himself saving goals, and then used the Duet feature to comment, critique and advise others on how to get their football in the back of the net. His posts- which span all things football on TikTok- have become so popular, with his brutally honest (and supportive!) commentary, that he's amassed over 17 million likes on his videos.
Fans across TikTok have been submitting their videos for Cal to duet, sharing the tips they've learnt from his videos and hoping to get feedback from the legend himself! In between showing us all how it's done, rating people's goals and offering his advice, Cal has built a huge following of almost a million users who love his content!
He's even attracted interest from world class professionals like record-breaking Premier League goalkeeper Ben Foster who challenged Callum to beat his tricks, and is now a 'massive fan' of his work, heralding Callum an 'absolute legend'.
TikTok loved Cal's content so much that we launched our first ever creator hashtag challenge! The #CalTheDragon hashtag encourages others in the community to show off their best goals to TikTok's favourite goalie. With over 260 million views, there's really no stopping him and we can't wait to see his reaction to the EUROs this summer!
In our latest TikTok Creator Spotlight, we chatted with Cal to get to know what inspires him and how we can brush up on our footy skills...
