    She seems like such a great coach! She really knows what she's doing and how to help you achieve your goals.

    If you were European or South American you would never have put this video in this series. Almost all players can do what you say is almost impossible. Even I, and I've never been a pro.

    You clearly didnt noticied Dejan Petkovic, he used to play for Flamengo, and was a top priority to the other team dont let a corner kick take place, cuz, well he was the gol olimpico guy, it was weird when he missed a gol olimpico, that made him a double threat corner kicker, he can pass the ball or score himself, he was a nightmare to play against
