    Is this real? Is it like modified to make it look cool? If it's not he's amazing! And this is coming from a guy who doesn't really like soccer.

    Yes, He then was critisized but then he stated he does that all the time in practice, then you think to yourself, its actually pretty harfd to hit the ball to the pole ionsnt it? even if its 4 times in a row and from 4 diferent positions......Thats quality, not that he sucks

    dang 4 for 4 that's hella sick!!! and how he managed to make the ball come right back to him each time. I could maybe hit the pole once, or maybe a lot if it was all on accident, but they would all go flying into the stands, but to have the ball come right back to him...dammmmn!

    I'm an American who feels soccer is like watching paint dry ... but this dude makes Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson look like paraplegics in comparison.

    Saaaweeeet! Whenever I watch soccer they miss the net entirely so if this guy can put the ball in the same one-inch plane to get it to bounce directly back at him...he must be god.

    That guy is pretty amazing, but there's NO WAY he can hit the beam 4 times in a row, and get it to bounce right back to him. That part has GOT to be enhanced. The rest looks legit. He's got great feet!

    Have you seen the Tiger Woods commercial where he's bouncing a tennis ball all over the place? I've only seen it once, and am not sure if that's really him with a real ball, or trick photography ala Forrest Gump & ping pong.

    sorry, there isn't a tennis equivalent I can think of for this one.

    oh, maybe to hitting three drop shots in a row that bounce back over the net onto your side of the court...??? perhaps, even that is much 'easier' than what this guy is doing. I think it's just sick.

    I still have hard time believing it, this kinda reminds me of the powerade commercial with Lebron James.

    even if it's fake, he still hits the ball pretty close to the bar every time. that's hard to do.

    For a player of his level, that sort of accuracy is nearly to be expected...

    That's like saying roddick could hit the T 4/4 times in a row casually.

    Nope.

    Yes remember the skills challenge at the US Open? I was really surprised by how often the pros could not hit a sizable target on the court. Federer was the best but he hit the targets only about 50% of the time.

    yeah, i think the same... but if you have ever watched him play, he is a magician... he's got specific moves NAMED after him and he's what like 23? at the website wit the video (youtube.com?) there are some other highlight reels on the right side of the screen... check them out... it'll make you appreicate just how talented he really is.
