Christian Atsu-Ghana's exciting new talent
posted on Monday, 9th January 2017 - [ 936 views ]
 

The emergence of exciting young players is not a new phenomenon in Ghana but the arrival of midfielder Christian Atsu has created unprecedented excitement.

Over the years, many youngsters have burst onto the stage amid shouts of, “he’s the next legend!”

Sadly, many of them have flattered to deceive while others have sunk without trace.

But in Christian Atsu the Black Stars have a player of undoubted ability, an excellent prospect, whose movement with the ball at his feet is exceptional.

If the 19-year-old goes on to become a football great, many will remember 8 September 2012 as the day he officially announced his arrival.

That is the day Atsu – who plays for FC Porto in Portugal – made only his third appearance for Ghana against Malawi in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Accra.

Although he impressed in two previous matches against Lesotho and China, it was against the Flames that Atsu made people sit up and take more notice of him.

His first touch was a thing of beauty – gliding past opposition defenders with remarkable ease – and his overall use of the ball was so mature for someone so young.

At some point we thought we were watching a reincarnation of the legendary Abedi Pele, especially when Atsu had the ball glued to his left foot while running at and scaring Malawian defenders.

Flare, movement and technical skill all intertwined into a Ghanaian football machine?

Naturally, many Black Stars fans, thrilled by his goal against Malawi, went on social media to hail the arrival of the ‘Ghanaian Messi’.

Not that being compared with the Barcelona magician unsettles Atsu.

“Messi is my idol. There’s no Ghanaian Messi, there is no other Messi in this world,” he told BBC Sport.

“I can never play even one percent of what Messi is doing. It’s impossible.”

Two goals in his first four games for Ghana suggest an eye for goal but Atsu believes his biggest quality lies elsewhere.

“For anyone to dribble, the first touch has to be perfect. I think that is my biggest quality.”

Not many who have seen him in action would disagree with that self-assessment.

Having begun his football education at the Feyernood Academy in Ghana, Atsu earned a contract with FC Porto in 2010 and was immediately loaned out to Rio Ave.

Twenty-seven appearances and six goals later, national team officials came knocking on his door.

Ghanaian football connoisseurs, fans and fellow-players are unanimous in their belief that Atsu has a bright future ahead of him.

“Ghanaians shouldn’t put too much pressure on him,” cautions Black Stars striker Dede Ayew.

The 2011 BBC African Footballer of the year added: “I believe that he’s going to be a great player.”

Asamoah Gyan has also seen enough to be excited about: “I’ve seen all three games that he has played for Ghana and he’s been incredible.

“If he continues this way he’s going to be a star.”

Fitness and exercise are an important part of leading a healthy life. People who exercise regularly have healthier hearts, and are less prone to problems related to obesity as well as depression and other mental illnesses. Read on to find out how you can set up your own fitness program and start to feel great! The best fitness tip for building up your arms is to work opposite muscles in opposite sets of each other. The best example would be to work the triceps and then the biceps. Each has the opportunity to rest while the other is being worked. This minimizes your time and maximizes your workout. Do not be afraid to motivate yourself before a work-out. There is no audience and no judgment if you want to give yourself a little pep-talk on the way into the gym. The benefits are very real; when you exercise with positivity you work out more successfully. Tell yourself you are going to have a great work-out and you probably will. To get the most out of your cardio workout, try interval training. Go as fast as you can for two minutes, and then rest for a minute. By moving your heart rate up and down like this, your workout is maximized, which means those calories are getting burned quicker than ever. A great way to get fit is to consult with a professional bodybuilder. A lot of bodybuilders have their own web sites where they offer a service that gives you the opportunity to pay to have your own consultation with them. You can get their experienced advice on your diet and workout routine. While you may be a decent fitness enthusiast, it takes time and practice to become a great fitness enthusiast. You should know that you are never done learning about the activity or what you can do to better your skills. With the previous tips in mind, you are well on your way to becoming a great fitness enthusiast. [url=https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/]https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/[/url]
