Andrés Iniesta is the Puppet Master #Nike #football #soccer #fans #giveaway
Since its a Mid Week, let me help you get through the week with this Contest Give away I hope this post you looking forward to the weekend.
I sure am not much of a soccer fan, tried the game but just cant get my self to love it, I tried playing for the school team but never worked out, I can’t grasp the idea of having 11 people chase over one ball, not that I don’t totally understand the scheming of things here, like the tactics of diving, punching, tackling
Yes I know you guys would say I am a square not knowing who the Red Devils or The Canon team (Arsenal if you were wondering).
One guy that put an impression on me on the game of soccer was Eric Cantona for his famous Kung Fu kick that could put Bruce Lee to shame,
totally not forgetting about the playmaker, Zidane that guy is coolness off the charts cause of his head butt in the Worldcup or wait one of his games?
speaking of playmaker, Andrés Iniesta from FC Barcelona was made into a puppet master by Nike, do check out this cool video by Nike of him as the puppet master.
I was totally blown away by it.
Iniesta told Nike: “I’ve always liked playing in the middle, that’s where the play begins, both going forward and on defence. As the years go on, you always try to improve all aspects of your game.”
Nike asked Iniesta if he had any advice for budding football stars: “As a midfielder, the only bit of advice I can give is that you try to learn something new in each training session. Try to read the game before your opponent because your positioning before you receive the ball is very important. But above all, you have to be confident in your abilities.”
THE PUPPET MASTER
In the film Iniesta wears Nike’s completely re-designed CTR 360 Maestri III: the boots for the midfield maestro. Maestri – meaning Maestro in Italian – is the boot favoured by midfield players like Iniesta who rely on innovative performance features to enhance their control of the ball, and therefore the game itself.
He is the player with impeccable ball control, the player who receives the ball, makes his own time and space and has both the vision and the range of passing to create game changing opportunities.
On shooting and starring in the video Iniesta said: “It was fun to shoot; it is always good to do something a little different from the norm.”
He added: “The CTR 360 III Maestri is the main tool of my trade, it’s what makes me feel comfortable on the pitch, secure when I touch the ball, when I want to dribble or make a play. It’s important to feel comfortable in your boots, and I do.”
The new CTR360 Maestri III is reengineered to deliver enhanced control, traction, support and lightweight comfort. Using next generation Kanga-Lite synthetic material for an assured touch and durability, the new boot also features new All Conditions Control (ACC) technology, providing the same level of control in either dry or wet conditions.
Innovations include a revamped 3D control pad that uses separate strips with fins of varying sizes to hug the arch and maximize contact with the ball, optimizing receiving and passing accuracy.
An asymmetrical lacing system enlarges the area used to control the ball and a new streamlined design enhances touch sensitivity. A dimpled texture on the midfoot increases friction, once again aiding the players control and touch.
The new and more responsive plate features a 360 degree stud placement – the boot deploys round studs on the medial side and blades on the lateral – is designed to provide premium comfort; perfect for the midfielder’s constant turns, and cuts through the pitch.
The CTR 360 Maestri III is available at Weston Corporation for SGD $269
