‘THE PURITY OF FOOTBALL’
THE ADROITNESS AND BEAUTY THRILLS OF THE RONALDINHO GAME
I love football. We all do love the dynamism of the game but sometimes looking the excitment and dynamics of the game in field acrobatism, certain man-power readiness and manual exceptionalities makes the game beautiful and enticing.
Having had a little insight into the deeper trends of the unfolding realism of the game, it holds in it enclave of overwhelming that, certain individuals were and are truely born ‘Gems’ on the pitch.
The game of soccer as been beautiful displayed by African kids on the lovely sandy beaches and within the small street corners makes it more exciting and trilling.
The likes of certain living legends makes the game more immaculate and still ‘virgin’. Pele, Marodona, Platini, Raul, Figo, Romario, Mila, Zidane, Ronaldo9, Henry, Abedi Pele, Casilas, Reina, Foè, Abuotrikà, Tony Yeboah, Okocha, Kano, Etò, Messi, CR7, Ibrahimovic, Kakà, Neymar, Rooney, Gigs, Scholes, Stephen Appiah and the likes added and still adds charm to the game.
From the spectaculative observation from my magnificient eyes, my admiration towards the game stemed from the mind boggling, incomprehensible and magnificient magical tactics, dribbles and hearty warming skills coupled with the enchanting cleverly display of Ronaldinho whenever graces the field for me.
Here on the soils of Africa, and in the picknicking noisy streets of villages and towns in Ghana, every kid growing up who by fortune of destiny gets a soccer boots and starts playing on the rocky and sandy angles, prides himself as Ronaldinho.
The mention of the name Ronaldinho on the fields of an African young players sparkled an iotacy of a dream come true. The name Ronaldinho has a strong aroma like that of ‘Salted fish’ (Kako) in an African kitchen.
I love football and the fans of a global addictiveness to it keeps increasing on a rampant rate. Here in Ghana, we salute the game beautiful as if paying homage to an African chief in a palanquin especially when the dancing skills of Asamoah Gyan graces his goals for the day.
