Watch out Lionel Messi, you've got some competition! Meet Purin, an adorable beagle (or "super beagle" as her owner calls her) who is practicing her many ball-handling skills leading up to the much-anticipated 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

"Purin is ready for the World Cup," reads her YouTube page, where the pup can be seen scoring, dribbling, practicing hand stands (perhaps as a celebratory dance?) and, as a goalie, blocking the ball with her front paws.

Purin (whose name means "pudding") has also won dog food speed-eating awards, according to her Facebook, and already has an animal agent.

As for her personal interests? She lists eating, jumping, walking and sniffing. Okay, so maybe she's somewhat normal after all.
