It looks like this border collie named Scotch may be Brazil’s next big soccer star.

Dogs are known to play fetch and catch balls, but Scotch brings playtime to a whole new level with his ball skills!

Scotch was watching dad Felipe Eckhardt and his friends kicking around a soccer ball on a beach in Rio de Janeiro on December 28, 2015. The three friends were playing a popular Brazilian beach game called altinha, where the goal is to keep the soccer ball from touching the sand.

As it turns out, Scotch is a master at the seaside sport, and Felipe loves to have his border collie join in on the activity.

In the clip below, the three people pass the ball around to each other until it’s Scotch’s turn.

Proving he’s a pro at the game, the border collie gets ready and eyes the ball. Then, he jumps up high with a spin and knocks the soccer ball to the next person using his snout.

But this isn’t a one-time deal for the dog. Scotch keeps getting the ball kicked to him, and he never misses a shot or lets the ball hit the ground. Talk about amazing coordination!
