"Curl" is not a skill move its technique. Skill moves in soccer include a rainbow flick or elastico chop or berba spin

Author fishcar ( ago)
Good list but should have had drop shots from tennis on, even just for how effortless it looks

Author Phil ip ( ago)
Surprised they didn't mention Roberto Carlos for the free kick curl against France. Scientists even studied the ball movement on that one.

Author Samuel Crouch-Loveday ( ago)
You should have put some aussie rules/AFL spectacular marks/catches in the video

Author tucatnev ( ago)
The alley-oop is quite similar to the handball "Chinese trick" (I don't know the handball term) So when an offensive player passes the ball over the restricted area where a team mate can pick up the ball and shoot it immediately in the air.

Oh, I checked it, this is called alley-oop in the handball too.
