We know you’ve been trying to bend it like Beckham (too old?). We’ve seen you working on those mad skills, but what we haven’t seen is you caring for your knees. This word might be new to those who like to live on the edge, so let’s define it first: a knee is the part joining your thighs to your legs — it’s the round and fragile medium that looks like the back of Uncle Fester’s neck.

Do you think that a footballer’s birthday is important? Guess what, it is! The calendar month and year that a soccer player is born in may have a lot to do with whether or not they become a star someday.

A few dummies, a stepover and two beautiful roulettes puts the kid right through on goal, and then finishes it all off with an unsaveable shot into the roof of the net. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, eat your heart out.
