You’ve got to learn to appreciate yourself, and that begins with watching Paul Scholes raking cross-field passes right onto the feet of his sprinting teammates. You should be confident in who you are and what you do, because Paul Scholes was such an unbelievable footballer that the cosmos are truly in total balance.
You, my friend, are a beautiful little ginger prince. Trust me, it's true.
It had been no secret within Argentina that Diego Maradona was a precocious talent from an early age. Appearing against Hungary as a 16-year-old, Maradona became the country’s youngest international ever.
When the 1978 World Cup came to Argentina the call to include him in the squad, now aged just 17, was resounding. But Argentine manager Cesar Luis Menotti abstained, believing that the pressures of a World Cup on home soil would be too much for the adolescent.
The Portland Timbers made it three wins from three matches to begin their 2017 MLS season, and Darlington Nagbe capped a superb week with an assist so good that your first instinct is to doubt its intention.
Nagbe was recalled to the USMNT last week for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers, and the midfielder’s creativity was on full display in Portland’s 4-2 victory over Houston on Saturday.
Nagbe was frequently overlooked by Jurgen Klinsmann, but his ridiculous assist for David Guzman’s goal should tell you everything you need to know about his quality.
For those with a preference for attacking football, there was no greater side than the one Brazil assembled for the 1982 FIFA World Cup in Spain. The fascinating talents of Zico, Socrates, Eder, Serginho, Falcao and even defender Junior combined to score a staggering 15 goals in five matches.
Cristiano Ronaldo Has Now Registered More Assists Than Any Player In The History Of The Champions League
Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t make the headlines following Real Madrid’s 3-1 victory against Napoli Wednesday, those all belonged to Casemiro after his stunning, vital volley, but it was a vintage performance from Real’s No. 7. Whether cropping up on the left or right side of attack, Ronaldo was a constant threat to Napoli’s fullbacks, and his assist to Toni Kroos for Real’s second was sensational.
Kevin Mohwald came as close as he’ll ever be to Andrea Pirlo with this assist for Nurnberg in the German second division. With space and time from eight yards out, Mohwald hits what might’ve been the miss of the season in Germany. Why he’s contorting his body like that and using his foot like a sand wedge we’ll never know, but the effect sends the ball pathetically fluttering sideways.
Luckily for him, his teammate Abdelhamid Sabiri is there to head it in, and Mohwald doesn’t need to see the club doctor and get evaluated for what the science community refers to as dumb legs.
