its not fake, its real and you can try it in indoor soccer when you play with a ball that looks like a big tennis ball :wink: you have to pound the ball hard with your heel to get the ball bounce up, I recommend using indoor soccer shoes also, henry did this move in another commercial before where h...

great post XstaticX

in my situation it is pure aggro that drives me. Aggro comes from my 2 year injury, aggro from not touching the ball for months.

ronaldo wore braces while he played at PSV; his agents made him do it for marketing purposes.

I also seen Ronaldinho wear braces when he signed for barca. Maybe he wears them but doesn't when he plays.

lol.... I guess the worst feeling for a world class footballer is when he is nearing his end especially for Ronaldo; he was a galatic star in 94-98 02-04 seasons; he set such a high standard for himself and gets the heaviest critisim now when he is reaching retirement. what happens in the next few y...

this move is best when done on a run (not standing) and done quickly....

its both hard and very dangerous to pull it off in a competitive game, cause if the defender screws up, he can seriously injure you

that goal that Ronaldo scored was a toe-poke, very beautiful and difficult to produce in a game.

The way ronaldo did it was that he hit the ball at dead center with his toes. It will take some practise, but if you play futsal you will see how useful it is.

my advice is....don't kick the ball to high, maybe about 3 inches. Thats pretty much the key. edit: you know most of you guys are pretty young! 13 and 14 year olds. Maybe your legs are not fully developed and long enough to preform it. Just try your best. My suggestion is to stick to the fundemental...

I don't know if this will work but try heating it up by holding it on top of a stove...I seen people doing this on plastic toys that are deformed...give it a try, I think it should distribute the volume equally into your ball edit: be careful not to heat it up too much! Your ball will explode...also...
