I found a video that shows a clear view of C. Ronaldo's feet as he does the Rabona: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClX70Ak_FZU&search=c.ronaldo%20rabona Yup, note the planted foot position vis-a-vis the ball.

Here's the Rabona Wiki entry: The Rabona is a football (or soccer) move in which a shot or cross is performed by moving one leg behind, and around, the 'standing leg' (the leg meant to hold the player on the ground steadily with) and so kicking the ball with one's legs crossed. There are several rea...

Leap height is dependant on the explosive strength and power of a number of muscles and muscle groups (the key word being 'explosive'). These include the calves, quads, hamstrings, glutes, and abdominals. Training these muscles are great to increase vertical leap and general power. The most effectiv...

1. Mostly technical 2. When using the instep to shoot powerfully, definitely do not use your natural foot angle. At the same time, do not hyper-extend your foot. Curl your toes down and lock your ankle, thereby creating a large and stable striking surface. Like Ronaldinho10 pointed out, read JDefoe'...

The "inside-out elastico" is arguably easier than the regular elastico. It's like a matthews ( http://www.strongsoccer.com/Kingdrills/clipspractice.htm#Matthews ), but with 3 differences- 1. There's no "hop" 2. It's in one continuous motion. 3. The initial move "inside" is longer than in the matthew...
