Nike has a long tradition of producing impressive pre-football tournament adverts and this latest offering includes our very one PNE.

In a homage to 70s film Freaky Friday, Cristiano Ronaldo switches bodies with schoolboy Charlie Lee (played by 16 year-old Gerson Correia Adua) during an unfortunate mid-game collision.

During young Charlie's rise through the footballing ranks to eventually play for England, one clip shows him guiding Preston North End to victory in a style only Ronaldo could achieve.

The pair finally meet again at Euro 2016, where following another clash order is restored.
