The World Cup starts next week and Nike is gearing up for the global event with the upcoming release of an animated short called The Last Game. The film features cartoon versions of several of soccer's biggest names as they battle to fight the possible extinction of the game they love. Made in collaboration with longtime advertising partner Wieden + Kennedy and Passion Films, the short makes its official debut this Monday, June 9 and can be seen right here.

In the meantime, you can peep the previews that have been released below.
