Advice to Players: Football as it is known world wide is a beautiful game. Probably the most skillful sport that ever exist. Because most others sports use hands as a mean to navigate the ball. Human being is naturally made to use our hands to accomplish almost everything physical/motion. It is really amazing to see what one's can do with their feet. Therefore my advice to the players is to commit and dedicate themselves to be the best they can possibly be. Enjoy every moment while they can!
