A Robinho showboating showcase

Ahead of the return of the UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid CF forward Robinho gives a guide to showboating exclusively on the UEFA Training Ground.

Next week the UEFA Champions League returns with 16 sides continuing their quest to be crowned European club kings at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium in May. Among those in contention are Real Madrid CF and this week their Brazilian forward Robinho displays some tricks of the trade in the UEFA Training Ground.

Samba skills
Robinho has been in sensational form for Madrid this season, scoring four times in five appearances in the UEFA Champions League group stage, and he will hope to continue mining that rich seam against AS Roma on Tuesday in the first knockout round. From Friday, the 24-year-old exhibits the samba skills that have made him such a popular player, giving a guide to showboating exclusively on the Training Ground.

Big names
The Training Ground hosts more than 100 videos and you can still catch exclusive masterclass sessions by other UEFA Champions League stars – Kaká, Andrea Pirlo, Deco and Zlatan Ibrahimović – among arguably the greatest array of football talent assembled for a learning-based website. Coaches Roy Hodgson and Lars Lagerbäck have also been recruited to help inform and educate players and coaches of all ages and abilities, as part of the most comprehensive guide to skills and tactics on the internet.
