Africans are renowned for having great endurance... as seen in long distance running. Football being 90 minutes playing time requires alot of endurance as players run up to 12 miles per game. I think it is because they like to run naturally and love to kick balls around. I think it is one of the only forms of entertainment the African's have.

Like the deprived favella kids playing on the streets of Rio, many African kids live in poor areas where football is one of the few fun things they can afford to do. Kids growing up in Ghana or Cameroon probably don't things like MTV and PlayStations to tempt them away from football.

By entering the draft and a team choosing them. Usually all football players go to college and play football there. You declare eligibility for the NFL draft and train, visit teams, and train some more. It's really hard work, but when you are drafted you feel very accomplished.

Rather than spending RP on player upgrades and players spend it on increasing the level of players you can train, for example, you can buy the titanium and black trainers. This then puts titanium and black players on the transfer windows

Recruiting and selecting players, ensuring they train adequately, giving them suitable tactics for each game. Motivating players and ensuring a blend between teamwork and individual effort.

Technically, you don't need any education beyond high school, many players are from foreign nations and have only high school educations. Many players do have some college experience, however, it is not required. Baseball is different than basketball and especially football in that there isn't a huge gap in physical development that must occur to become a professional. Baseball has a good minor league system to develop a lot of young players where college would train basketball and football players.

Most baseball players will train for at least five years before playing professionally. Many players spend their entire lives training to play.

Not necessarily, but in England, this is frequently the case. However, most managers have a team of coaching staff who will help him train the players.

Anyone can train. The WAY in which you train is what will determine how fit you can get and how quickly you improve. You need guidance from professional resources such as the Forward in Football training book series. (soccer training) Nothing compares to Forward in Football books. Visit forwardinfootball.com and start getting better/fitter fast!

you cannot train African wild dogs because they are wild and free animals and they should stay that way.

NO!AnswerYour question assumes that there are physical characteristics that correspond to different skin colors. The idea that some races are endowed with certain physical traits is a patently racist notion.There are no differences, and if African players do seem like they have more endurance, one might only presume that it is a by-product of the fact that many African countries are much warmer, and that players who train there might have slightly better endurance. If white players were to train in different, more harsh climates, then surely they would also share the same benefits.
