Penguins show off their ball skills

Penguins playing football

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

With just days to go before the World Cup kicks off in South Africa it seems like everyone has caught football fever!

These penguins in South Korea certainly know which team they're backing, and are even wearing little football shirts to show their support for the national side.

Their keepers at an aquarium in Seoul have staged a mini football match for the birds to show off their ball skills.

South Korea is grouped with Argentina, Nigeria and Greece in Group B of the World Cup finals this year.
