Shortest Soccer Players

780 0

Low to the ground, a strong center of gravity, tough to knock off the ball, quick and agile. This group of players dart and cut with amazing speed, and they just happen to be some of the shortest players around. 

Some of the smallest soccer players in the world of professional soccer are also the best. Take Maradona or the young Messi, the Pulga Atomica (the Atomic Flea). Then there’s the Brazilian, Romario, who’s about to hit the 1000 goal mark. Below is a list of some of the shortest soccer players in the world but also the best and most exiting.

Take a look at Giuly in the video below. That’s one more reason it’s helpful to be low to the ground – the quick as lightening Frenchmen scores great goal for Barcelona in the video below.
