Coerver Soccer DVDs

If there's one soccer training DVD that works, it's the Coerver Coaching DVDs. Why? Because all of the Coerver drills and training ideas are based around the soccer ball and getting comfortable on the ball.

In the end, that's what soccer is all about, skills, touch and control of the soccer ball. To become a great soccer player, to become a pro, you have to master the soccer ball. That means becoming an expert dribbler, passer, juggler, shooter, and so on. The Coerver DVDs or their method is not a magic pill that you can take and all of a sudden become Lionel Messi, but helps guides young players who are just learning the game. The keys are good fundamentals, which Coerver gives you, and then training on your own and the desire to become great.

Live Blog: Barcelona Versus Inter Milan on Wednesday

Join us on our Facebook fan page for the live commentary: SoccerTrainingInfo on Facebook

In perhaps the biggest game of the year, Inter Milan travels to Barcelona to face the Champions League champs at the Camp Nou. And, fortunately, Inter Milan gets to take a plane rather than in endure a 14-hour two-day bus trip as Barcelona did in the first match.

With Inter Milan winning the first match 3-1, Barcelona will need at least two goals to advance to the final at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid on May 22.

Who will win the match? What team will you be cheering for? Will Eto'o score against his old team. Will Messi get a hat trick again? Follow our live blog on Wednesday as you watch the match. Post comments. Tell us what you think about the players, the coaches, the announcers, and the game overall.

Inter Milan will be without Wesley Sneijder, as he suffered a muscle strain in Inter's Serie A match versus Atalanta. Barcelona will be a little bit happy about this, as Sneijder as been on a tear for Inter. However, you never know what tricks Mourinho has up his sleeve, and Sneijder might make a miraculous recovery and play in the match.

Leading scorers for each team in the Champions League:

Lionel Messi 8 goals
Zlatan Ibrahimovic 4 goals
Alberto Millito 4 goals
Wesley Sneijder 3 goals

Freddy Adu: Didn't You Used To Be The Future?

Grant Wahl's new story on Freddy Adu:

Stray dogs. Freddy Adu sees them everywhere in ThessalonĂ­ki. Scavenging trash in the vacant lot by his practice field. Wandering in packs outside the hotel he called home for two months. Shadowing pedestrians with enough menace to spark visions of giant-needled rabies shots. Greece's second-largest city is beautiful in many respects: the seaside beaches, the bustling restaurants, the sigh-inducing women. But no matter how hard Adu tries, he can't avoid the stray dogs.
