That goal by Ronaldinho

If anyone ever tries to tell you that Ronaldinho is overrated, just show them his fantastic strike from yesterday's Barcelona-Chelsea match. The Brazilian took on three defenders in front of the box and managed to stay up and fire a perfect shot.

This goal can be used as example number 1 for why players should not dive. If you notice, right after Chelsea defender John Terry slams into Ronaldinho, a couple other defenders pull up, hoping to keep the ref from calling for a free kick when Ronaldinho goes down. However, Ronaldinho does not go down, like so many lesser players would have. He stays with the ball and makes the shot. This is beautiful soccer.

Here is the video of the shot. Warning, there is audio to this video.
