only according to biased, stolid interpretations...No they are just as you describe them tricks, nothing more.
I never said they weren'tI don't suppose the ability to tackle, have spatial awareness and an ability to read a game are important?
Yes, like the video I showed you ; no other players can ever emulate that level of skill.Any evidence that Asian players are not only more skilful then Westerners (I suppose that must include African and American players) but are also more powerful and Athletic?
Regarding power and athleticism, African players rank first; but broadly speaking, if one takes into account every soccer quality needed, Asian players are on average the best soccer players.
Far from always: e.g. Maradona or Wayne Rooney - neither have this physical proclivity or innate soccer ability - only their mental strength and determination carries them to success.Sorry is this a typo? you can not actually believe that the most gifted players don't excel at their chosen sport?
