Soccer & Globalization

Soccer connections abound in Chilean miners rescue

It was a miracle to learn about Chilean miners who survived over two months trapped in a mine. Yet after all of this, soccer has come to the forefront. In the middle of the rescue process, media, rescuers and on-lookers chanted the famous “Chi! Chi! Chi! Le! Le! Le!” chant of the national soccer team. Now, the miners are being treated to a retreat to the Greek Islands and tickets to see Real Madrid play in Spain and Manchester United in England. To read more on their new soccer experiences which include signed t-shirts from top clubs around the world and more trips around the works click here. Soccer and globalization definitely go hand-in-hand. What an incredible story!

The idea for Goalden is to help other soccer players of all ages improve the many different aspects of their game. We began coaching youth teams and watching youth soccer all over Ontario. We watched semi-professional and professional teams and noticed how far the game still has to develop here. From that, we decided we want to help others obtain the best information as early as possible in their soccer careers. We want to educate readers about the game of soccer and the fine details that are often overlooked by coaches in North America.
