i think that this statemnet is true, but don't they also trien with a mini ball which helps them out in a gameSV_08 wrote:I think that they excel constantly because for many years you could go to any brazilian city or town and find pickup games of soccer, it's just their passion. It seems like their culture, lifestyles, and living conditions are a perfect blend for soccer. The one thing that sticks out in my mind is why are so many Americans good at basketball? Well, in the cities, there are many people playing basketball games, rec,street, whatever. They just play it all the time, which is what the brazilians do. And when you do that, of course you are gonna be amazing.

but as it has been noted before, soccer is the only thing that can rescue a poor and average-low-income person in this country.
sry, i just want to respond to your comment in bold...that mostly in South America the Spanish did not want slavery so it was only Brazil, but also Cuba had slavery and European people but they are not so good.owensglory wrote:this is what 1 read from a magazine:
in africa,the players are strong.they have more staima,more explosive and have better body,more strength.most africans are born to be athletes.that's why we see many running competition are won by african.they have pace.the best example is samuel eto'o,from cameroon,africa.
in europe,most people know about football.they watch and play football since they are small.that's why we can see in european league matches,they are many parents bring their son and daughter to watch the match together.once they know football,they will play football.after practising for years,the football talents will start to become the best in the world.and most of great players nowadays are introduced to football by their fathers.on of the example is iker casillas.his father is also a goalkeeper,although not very famous.but he learn from his father about goalkeeping,then become a better player than his father.others are shaun and bradley wright-phillips.their father is ian wright,who is a stiker a arseanl long time ago.as a result,shaun can play as a winger and a striker too.his brother play in stiker,just like his father..what i want to say here is european players have talent,and great skill.casillas's father has goalkeeping talent,so as casillas himself.ian wright's talent as a gaolmachine has been passed to shaun and bradley.europeans have passion for the most beautiful game i the world.
history shows us that there are many europeans and africans have emigrated to south america(i not sure if is brazil only or all south america countrys) in the past .and many of them have married there,and have their family.so,.african athlete's strong body and strength + european talent in football = brazil great footballers.the best examples are julio baptista and leite adriano both from brazil.their body are strong and good in skill too.of course,brazilians most train hard to become like ronaldinho,not just if u born in brazil u wiil be great..
the other reason brazil is better in football is because ,they train hard.i never go to brazil before,but i can imagine there are many kids juggling and play football together now.at thier age,i dont even know what si football

also in brazil kid's parents all "wants" and help the kids to become pros alot of it is supports from family and its the only way they think to do to support their family, the only thing they can do better than anyone else.
sorry for any false statements and dont get me wrong i know there is also rich urban cities which is different.
brazilians plz correct me on my post if u feel the need, i only heard this from my friend.
