He probably knows what hes talking about hes the one that scored it. He does hit with the instep but follows through with the outside that creates the curve, if he hit it straight with instep it would just go forward and be a drive no? And BTW you take some good free kicks man keep it up i wanna see...

Pele is the best player in the world to many people, and PELE said himself that George Best was the best player ever. Maradona is not as good as best, best was 2 footed...was alot fastest than maradona, and also alot more creative should i say. The only reason he wasnt rated as highly was because h...

Seems like hes coming along nicely and in the future he could be great, although sometimes young talent is overhyped. I read an article about him about a year old which his youth coach in brazil claimed he will become the greatest player in the world and will change the way football is played.

The goalkeepers he plays against are just as good overall, and even if they werent it would hardly make a difference because he is so good. Juninho would have to be one of the best free kick takers due to his consistency and spectacularity of his kicks IMO. I love Ronaldo's free kicks, especially th...

To become a strong side Australia has to win the Asian cup, full stop. They also must consistently qualify for the world cup over a number of years and get out of the group. I watch all of their games and always go to their matches in Syd but all they seem to win is friendlies. Friendlies are suppos...

He is like 16 now, did it when he was u15s. I forgot what club he played for, but trialled straight for APIA i think it was made it in. He was a good player not heaps skilled though, he was heaps fit though and real strong. He didnt tell me more than that but he must have worked pretty hard.

I know a guy who went straight from club to Premier League. Playing div 1 youth and super youth of course is the best way to get up to premier league but if you practice and are good enough you can make it straight to premier. You have to be very good, and it is not easy to get a place. You have to ...

You say winning is part of the package, but really to those players it means nothing if you dont win, no matter how well you played or what you did, they are paid to win and when they dont it is bad end of story.

Yeah there is always gonna be that difference. I love the game, so i play for heart. However, even when you play with heart, you once in awhile have to do what it takes to get that win. I think it's important to have tons of heart for playing, as well as lots of hunger to win. Both is definately id...
