Most of the time, we like to sit back and enjoy the ludicrous skills of the world’s best players. But occasionally, they display those skills with such ease and nonchalance, we just get jealous.
Take this video of Lionel Messi and Neymar warming up before Barcelona’s Copa Del Rey semi-final second leg against Villarreal last night.
The two South American superstars start off simply knocking the ball back and forth as they practice their ball juggling. That very quickly escalates into a game of long-range volleying at each other, all the while using flicks and tricks to keep the ball off the ground.
Just look at how easy it is for them. It’s sickening. How is it that these two men can be gifted with such amazing talent, while most of us struggle to do 10 kick-ups?
