EPISODIO 3: SAMUEL ETO'O vs Livorno
INTER and Pirelli, SAME PERFORMANCE
Pandev got into space in the box to bring down the switch of play. Forwards and defenders alike jostled for an inch around the penalty spot. When the cross left his boot, you just knew it was perfect, precise, cute. The intended recipient was marked, a defender between him and the goal, there was no room to turn. You just can't teach intuition and instinct, and Samuel Eto'o is one of the greats who had both in spades. He steadied himself, and got his back to the goalkeeper and the goal; there was no need to look, he knew what he had to do to score. He lept, twisted and produced a brilliant bicycle kick. Like it was the easiest thing in the world. March 2010, the team that would go on to win the Treble, and Livorno had come to Milano for a midweek matchday like any other. But Eto'o was anything but ordinary; he never held back and always gave his all against any team. If one's performance is their capacity to overcome anything and their ability to turn any situation into an opportunity, then Eto'o was a unique and irreplaceable player everywhere he played. His performances were never affected by the conditions, or by external and unforeseen factors. His quality was always there for all to see, no matter the game, no matter the opposition. He was always in top form. From Champions League finals to the biggest moments for the clubs where he play, right down to the smaller moments against less storied opponents, Eto'o always performed as best he could.
