THE PITCH — Soccer is the beautiful game. And if you’re a fan of the sport, you know it’s called “the beautiful game” because there are many moments of beauty that are displayed.
One of the most beautiful things in soccer is seeing a great display of ball juggling skills. A lot of times, it’s not even professionals players who are displaying their skills. Many times, it’s the amateurs or street players are the best at juggling.
And on very special occasions, you’ll see an amazing display of juggling from a nonprofessional player that leaves you breathless.
This is one of those occasions.
In this video, a talented woman begins to juggle a soccer ball, bouncing the ball on her head for over 30 seconds with smoothness and pace. Soon after, the woman begins to dribble the ball back and forth off her shoulder and her head.
I could describe the rest, but that wouldn’t do the woman’s performance any justice because the display of skill she displays is better seen than described.

The crowd around the woman can’t help but be in awe of her. We can’t help it either.
PS: Did you notice she was wearing sandals and not shoes?
