This video isn’t about a bunch of amazing kicks and goals. It’s about staying on your feet when the rest of the soccer world tries to get a penalty called instead.

    This gentleman plays with soul … and a bit more humble than Ronaldo.

    There is a difference between diving and not falling. Diving you do on purpose. Diving means it wasn’t a foul and you faked it. This was a clip of a great player that kept trying even after the foul. It’s just the chive needs to get this straight

    Gotta love Messi. A true superstar in the sport who doesn't resort to cheap tricks because he's got all the skill in the world.

    Smart player. Doesn’t go for the easy foul call allowing the defense to reset. He just blasts on through in the hope of beating them for a goal. Noticed he still had calls go his way even though he didn’t take a dive. All players should at like him. Good man.

    Ironic how the smallest player plays with the biggest heart.

    Hopefuly this inspires a whole generation of new soccer players that don't take fake dives. You know it becomes an issue when they put rules in place to stop the dives. I'm not a fan of soccer at all, but this guy is simply refreshing in a sport full of whimps. He looks like a big kid just running around! Love it :)

  • Boo

    This video shows how futile his efforts are. Put him on the outside midfield position and lets see if he can pull those moves around players and score as many goals as he does upfront!!

    • Ash

      Yea. Absolutely true man. Why not just make him the goalie, then we'll see how many goals he scores. Great insight.

  • f4k3orr34l

    This is the work of a true athlete/competitor. Never stop pushing, driving or trying. This guy is KCCO to the core!

    That's a REAL professional! All of those wannabe soap-opera stars could take lessons.

    Kudos to you sir.

    I think he grew up in the hood and learned how to keep his balls.

  • @babyyboogaloo

    Also need to look up Wayne Rooney, he looks like a rugby player but defiantly plays soccer… anyone who calls soccer players wimps, the man started a bar fight, saying that they trashed his team.

    • Dandude

      He started a bar fight? So basically he’s on the same level of the guys at jersey shore.

    Genius! You can watch messi/Barcelona play about every other week on ESPN 3.
    He does this every game.

  • MattyB4x4

    This is how soccer should be played. Stop the acting.

    Anyone know the song in the first half?

    I have seen him dive, but he does it rarely…..and he is currently the best soccer player in the world
