There's no doubting Vincent Kompany loves a tackle, but how does he feel about the NFL's biggest hits?

Ahead of Superbowl 51, America's Game came to the City Football Academy as the skipper took a painless look at some hard-hitting action.

Football may have a different meaning across the pond, but tackling is just as important and who better to judge the effectiveness of the hits than our imposing centre half.

Featuring plenty of “ooohs” and “wows” from the trademark Stateside commentary, Kompany – sporting a New England Patriots jersey – was certainly impressed by the athleticism and bravery of his NFL counterparts.

The New England Patriots take on Atlanta Falcons in the 51st instalment of the championship game and given his jersey choice, it seems our No. 4 is backing the Patriots for victory.

Check out his reaction in the video above.
