This is the story of how @virgilvandijk has cemented himself as the world’s best defender - but his rise to the pinnacle of football has been anything but easy. From playing up front and scoring twice in one half, to nearly dying in his teen years, we learned first-hand how crazy his come-up was. . . . #TheGroundbreakers @copa90
This is the story of @wissbenyedder ‘s path from Futsal prodigy to Weekend League legend. . . . Wissam Ben Yedder didn’t take the usual path to becoming an elite footballer. Instead of developing his skills in a state of the art youth academy, he honed his talents on the streets of Paris, joining a local futsal team and running rings round his opponents thanks to his incredible dribbling and technical ability. One of the most two-footed players around, Ben Yedder’s 5* weak foot came from him breaking his ankle at a young age, and a decision to relentlessly practice with his left: “It took me six months before I could play again and a year-and-a-half to be at my best. I didn’t have a right foot, but I had my left one. I kept practising until people asked me if I was left-footed or right-footed.” Now thriving in football after a successful transition from futsal, this is the story of Wissam Ben Yedder’s rise to the top. #TheGroundbreakers #BreakNewGround @copa90

In parts of South Africa, football is a little bit different. Out here the emphasis isn’t just on scoring goals and winning games. It’s on self-expression, standing out, and entertaining the crowd. All of this gives rise to a unique style of football full of some of the most outrageous tricks, skills, and showboats you’ll ever see. This is the story of Kasi Flava. 🇿🇦🤯 #TheGroundbreakers #BreakNewGround @copa90
