It may be subjective, but, for me, the highest levels of beauty on a football pitch can be found in a properly executed dribble. The mind games employed to handicap an opponent before making initiating the dribble, the graceful move to get past an opponent, and the presence of mind to be efficient with possession once passed an opponent. That said, the best of art should not be described, it should be experienced.
And so I’ll stop trying to describe the art that dribbling is. Enjoy this short montage of evasive Algerian playmaker: Yacine Brahimi. He’s 23, he plays for Granada and you can’t tackle him.
