WATCH: Sam Kerr stars in Nike's aspirational World Cup ad

Sam Kerr is set to play a starring role off the pitch as well as on it at the upcoming FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019™. 

The Matildas captain plays a key part in global sports giant Nike's 'Dream Further' advertising campaign around the tournament, which made its debut appearance during last weekend's UEFA Champions League Final between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid, Spain. 

Kerr is joined by fellow France-bound stars including midfielder Lieke Martens, of the Netherlands, and Brazil forward Andressa Alves for the aspirational ad, which ends with the message 'Don't change your dream, change the world'.

Over an adrenaline-fuelled three minutes, 10-year-old Makena Cook is led by the hand around the pitch by the players, sidestepping challenges and playing out her dreams alongside some of the world's best. 

The climax comes when Cook links up with Kerr, delivering a perfect free-kick for the Matildas' No.20 to head home in typical style.
