Welcome to Tecnica Top 5, our weekly look around the leagues from across the globe 🌍
1) More Messi Magic!
The best ever. Every time the Argentinian magician takes to the pitch, soak it in. With unbelievable agility, composure and the whole football package to boot, it wouldn't be an inspiring weekend without that wand of a left foot destroying another defensive block.
Celta de Vigo had absolutely no answer when Messi picked the ball up just over half way, turned the deep lying midfielder with ease, directly ran at the back four before evading a defender and curling a delightful strike low into the corner. (See the Messi goal on our Instagram page)
2) Ellen White Downs USA With Last Minute Winner
We all love a late goal especially on the international stage. After energetic England full back Lucy Bronze rattled the crossbar from the edge of the area, Ellen White was on hand to follow up and score a vital winner in The She Believes Cup. This sparked a fantastic team celebration with the England players and dugout with what is already labelled as a game changing win for our national side.
3) Boxing Resilience
Although not a footballing matter for those who watched David Haye take on Tony Bellew at the weekend surely couldn't deny the amount of resilience on show.
Bar the usual before fight nonsense we believe so much can be learnt psychologically from Boxers as a whole. Of course the courage and bravery aspects are undeniable but look closely at how each shot each decision is thought out and this begins way before fighters even step into the ring.
Confidence, focus and resilience are particular traits we add into our Physical Education lessons. Add these ingredients wherever possible and disguise them however you like but you won't regret it.
4) Harry Kane, He's one of our own!
Scoring goal after goal at the top level is the dream for most young players. Many brick walls, garden sheds and knackered old goal posts have fallen victim to replicating this beautiful art of football. When I was younger the England striker I idolised was Alan Shearer and most evenings were spent wheeling away with one arm aloft after slotting past a chair between two plant pots.
Harry Kane just can't stop scoring for Tottenham and like so many before him we hope he can replicate this huge game influence he has when pulling on an England shirt. If he can add more goals like his thunder strike against Everton this weekend then heres hoping he inspires the next generation of goalscoring talent.
5) Manolo Gabbiadini 🔥
Another weekend goes by and another goal for Southampton hit man Manolo Gabbiadini.
The striker signed from Italian giants Napoli during the winter transfer window now has 6 goals in 4 games for The Saints. He is such a classic hard working and forward thinking striker who we can't wait to see more of during the latter part of this Premier League season. One to watch.
