Nancy Sinatra, the daughter of “old blue eyes” Frankie, once had a big hit song called These Boots are made for Walking. Seems like today in soccer, they are made for more than walking or kicking a ball with.
The amount of two-footed fouls, and they are fouls not tackles in the modern game is, to say the least, a serious cause for concern.
Is this a new trend?
Is this a new coaching tactic?
Is it now a new weapon in the armoury of coaches to win games?
