Aquele movimento de parar antes de bater um pênalti, criado por Pelé, vai ser punido de agora em diante, com cartão amarelo. Não é mais legal no futebol. Os estrangeiros chamam isso de "paradinha
", assim como nós brasileiros, é claro. Vejam um artigo de um site canadense
.Should the “paradinha” be legal?
This video was run out front on the Wall Street Journal homepage Wednesday evening. (As an aside, I find that the Journal has some of the best and most prominent soccer coverage amongst major U.S. Dailies.)
I had no idea that the legality of so-called “paradinha” – in which the player stunts his run-up and/or initially fakes his kick – was at the discretion of individual referees? That seems kind of like a recipe for disaster, although I can’t recall an instance where I’ve seen a ref annul a kick because of such a move.
But nevermind the legality of the kick… is it actually that effective?
I’ve noticed a lot of younger players (ie. U20′s) in general and Latinos of all ages prefer the stilted run-up. (Hello Cristiano Ronaldo.) In contrast to say, any German that ever existed anywhere, who stereotypically prefers a standard run-up and a straightforward blast, usually into the back of the net.
In 2002, some Korean players famously told the local press that Guus Hiddink advised them that the best way to deal with the pressure of spot kicks would be to simply close their eyes, run forward and kick it as hard as they could. And it worked.
On of my favourite examples of the paradinha working to devastating effect is Guillermo Amor converting against England in Euro ’96. Go to the 2:15 mark of the video below to see.http://canadiansoccerblog.ca/2010/03/04 ... -be-legal/
