Brazil's great secret for dominating world football is hardly a secret at all. Brazilian football players have 'ginga' - a fluid style of movement that raises ball skill to an art form. Ginga is not just restricted to dribbling, passing and scoring, and its not just about football; it's about celebrating what you're doing, not taking life too seriously and looking stylish at all times.
