Nice write up in the NYT magazine about 16 year old phenom Indi Cowie, whose family is originally from Glasgow but now settled in North Carolina. This clip gives an overview of her amazing freestyle skills which are entirely self taught. And she is not a half bad player on the pitch dazzling everyone with her dribbling and scoring loads of goals.
Not surprisingly, she is not too popular with her school mates who think she is a ball hog. But that single mindedness is celebrated in all the top goalscorers including Mia Hamm, who Indie recognized as a kindred spirit when she saw her score a goal. Like Hamm before, Indi too is set to go to UNC and possibly takeover both mantles of greatest soccer player as well as freestyle artist.
