What would the greatest Nike football line-up look like? Ronaldinho against Mbappe? Or 1998 Ronaldo against 2002 Ronaldo? The possibilities are endless.

To excite football fans in the run-up to the Fifa World Cup, Nike has released ‘Footballverse.’

In the spot, viewers see a snowy mountain in Switzerland where a team of scientists believe they have cracked the code and created a world where football legends, past and present, can compete against one another.

Created by long-time agency partner W+K, the short film features a bunch of Nike athletes, including Alex Morgan, Cristiano Ronaldo, Kylian Mbappé, Ronaldinho and Sam Kerr.

Danny Elfman composed the soundtrack, which was performed by Oingo Boingo.
