agree  Kim Metzger: Does Keane do those kinds of things?

  -> Difficult one to answer, Kim. Probably not in the next few weeks.

agree  jccantrell: bicycle kick in the USA, too
16 mins

agree  Kathi Stock
45 mins

agree  Steffen Walter: I think scissors kick is equivalent to "Scherenschlag" where player is still in "normal" position (but both legs off the pitch) and not in "upside-down" position. I'd prefer overhead. - So what about Ireland vs Germany without Keane ;-)

  -> Well, I sure won't be answering any KudoZ questions next Wednesday between 13.30 and 15.30. Wonder how sober I'll be afterwards. Should still have both feet on the ground. I reckon Cameroon are now group favourites. Should be interesting game, though.
