    Instinct is hard to beat :) 狼
    If he lifts the ball up with his foot, balances it perfectly on his head for about half a minute, let's it roll down his back, bumps it up with his butt and then heels it forward over his head, he definitely a Brazilian spy!

    Where did soccer originate

    I hit my bookmark for far future to see if anything new was for sell and all I got was an ad for a violen instructer. Did it go belly up or is it just a web error.

    And if he raises the ball with his foot in the air and:
    - hits him with a hand, is he an Argentine spy?
    - Is he a Japanese spy chopping him with a katana?
    - Does he hit an American spy with a baseball bat?
    - He pierces his sword, he is a French spy?
    :)

    Calcio Fiorentino is not the ancestor of modern football at all, it's a 16th century invention

    Mentions of forms of 'football' exist in Britain (and indeed other European states) from much earlier than that

    Football was invented in England but became magical in Brazil.

    Congratulations, Salento. Unfortunately, soccer players, like American football and rugby players, take a risk.

    Thanks :)

    About professional players injuries, It’s a Sacrifice They are Willing to Make (money, glory, fame, love of the game, ..)

    Lady Gaga fell off the stage a few days ago.

    Every action, job, activity can cause short or long term issues.

    I’m all for safety and prevention, but things happen even to people that live in a Bubble, the bubble could burst.
