VIDEO: Battling to be Ulster’s most famous export? Rory McIlroy takes on Jamie Dornan in soccer challenge Newsdesk Newsdesk

THE Men’s Health cover could be going to his head – as Rory McIlroy looks to take out Hollywood heartthrob Jamie Dornan in a new video.

The two Ulster men battle each other in a new ‘Circular Soccer’ challenge, with a video of their head-to-head making it on to YouTube.

In the 90 second video the two are seen running around the pitch and tackling each other.

Rory recently showed off his new leaner and more muscled physique in Men’s Health – and it stood to him as he beat the ’50 Shades’ star 2-1 in the challenge.

Circular Soccer is a new style of the game which is played using a three-dimensional goal called a TriGoal.

It is currently being trialled by FIFA as a way of training younger players – as the new goal design encourages the development of greater technical skills.

The game was developed by Belfast-based ‘Up & Up’, of which Jamie’s dad Jim is a director.
