There is a curious paradox about football. Yes, curious because this sport is so universal that greatly, at the same time, It becomes particularly. Throughout history and evolution of football, we have witnessed the creation of different views that disagree, many times, in the form and manner in which this game is working and focused.
At present, we are able to associate teams, selections and, even, leagues and entire countries with a certain footballing philosophy. Germany with his physical and tenacious football, England play with that verticality and direct, or Italy itself based on the iron defensive systems as a weapon more deadly. But, definitely, It is Holland who takes the cake.
Years, tulips have read and understood football otherwise. Where the supremacy of the final result was the prevailing law, they began to discern that it was not only important product, but also the process. Playing well must be a premise. Cruyff, one of the best of all time, It was the greatest exponent of this dogma. The now famous 'Clockwork Orange' and that Ajax decades of 70 Y 90 They made us vibrate, rather than leaving a deep sediment in the Dutch league, which it has become an endless source of new talent, especially as far as the offense referred plot.
And it is that Holland has spent years regaling Europe with young strikers end up becoming world stars. It's what has to grow up and grow surrounded by a purely offensive and football associations, wherein the tip figure is not a mere header or 9 the use, but goes much more allá.Muchos are examples of new strikers who have started giving samples of their enormous potential tulip territory:
– Romario. The Brazilian joined PSV in 1988 After dazzling in the Vasco de Gama Brazilian. Their 165 goals in 163 matches, There is nothing!, They won him to win three league titles and make the leap to F.C. Barcelona.
– Ronaldo Nazario. Which for many it is considered the best striker of all time, and he followed the footsteps of compatriot Romario steps. Despite its huge youth, Ronaldo marveling in Brazil and managed to reach the World US (1994) where he was proclaimed champion. Again, and seen what happened back seasons with Romario, PSV did not hesitate to take over its services. The new Brazilian ace played two seasons at the club where he left a baggage 42 many in 46 meetings, that enabled him to also take the shuttle direction "Can Barça".
– Ibrahimovic. Ajax it was clear, the young man who gave everything in Malmö was to play on the computer. In this way, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was discovered in the eyes of Europe in a Dutch league in which marked differences and showed signs of being the striker whose qualities have not been seen anywhere else. four seasons, since 2001 until 2005, They won him the good of Ibra to leave Juventus, continue to nurture their potential and reach what is today: one of the best players in the old continent.
– Luis Suarez. The charrúa is one of the last jewels that showed Holland. A full story of effort and struggle for a dream took a young Luis Suarez to leave his native Uruguay and joining F.C. Dutch Groningen later saturating in a row where exploded Ajax. Almost five years wearing the shirt of which he was captain, I note 111 goals in 159 appearances and went to the Premier League, leaving a, a glass, and Supercopa an indelible memory.
These are just some of the huge attacking players trained in Dutch football, that surely will continue to bear much fruit more.
