This makes breathing easier and more enjoyable for footballers than suffocating. Tonight's training began in anticipation of heavy rain: during the second part of the session, a black cloud hung menacingly over the mountains. However, despite the fact that the rain has already begun to smell, the cloud did not creep to the football pitch until even those players who like to stay and work individually have finished their work.
