If there is something that can be considered as talented, that is soccer in Latin America. There are many reasons why this could be said.
You can easily remember players like Pele, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and many other players in Brazil. Maradona was certainly a skillful player when he used to play in the past. In the present, there are good players also like Messi or Higuaín. Actually, Argentina is considered as one of the strongest teams in the world and Brazil too. It seems like too much coincidence in a way but this is something real.
Remember that Colombia, Uruguay, and Venezuela have been also the cradle of great soccer players as well. It wouldn’t be possible to say that countries do not have potential in soccer, possibly every country has good talents that have to be used the right way and with the right dedication (which indeed is a lot). Just consider the case of Messi, he was a player who played soccer since he was a child and he didn’t do that many other things in the past. Actually, Messi is a player who dedicated himself to soccer in a very strong way; he didn’t go party that much according to himself so instead, he preferred to make time for soccer.
There are many other players in Latin America who have come from very poor situations. This is for example the case of Pele, he didn’t have the best economic situations at the beginning of his life, and however, he preferred to look for a better situation and improved a lot in the soccer aspect until a point in which he became a worldwide figure. This is good to remember because it reminds us that in spite of the situation we are in, we can actually reach our dreams. Soccer is an inspiration!
