The World's Game

This is our latest newsletter we did for the World Cup.

             Ted Wright
             “The World Cup experience is more than just the game of soccer. It's an event. And it will fly by faster
             than you think. It will end and you'll be saying, 'Wow, it's over already?' You have to remember to take
             it all in and enjoy it. "
             - Cobi Jones
             Guy Stauber
             "The biggest knock against Neymar may be his size, but he has silenced many doubters after his move to                     Barcelona last year with lightning fast speed and acceleration, a top-class ability to finish off both feet, and
             the same doggedness on the pitch that his professional teammate Lionel Messi is known for. "
             -CBS NEWS
             David Johnson
             "OK, the wonderful thing about soccer is, a football is a perfectly round object, and it doesn't make mistakes.
             The player using it makes mistakes. And the more you use it, the less mistakes you make."
             -Craig Johnston
             Dongyun Lee
             "The World Cup is a very important way to measure the good players, and the great ones. It is a test of a
             great player."
             James Bennett
             "The World Cup is not just a great global sporting event, it is also inscribed with much deeper cultural and
             political importance"
             - Martin Jacques
             Bill Sanderson
             "Soccer is a great game, and the rich variety of styles and passions that come with being truly global
             makes the World Cup a nonpareil event in the universe of competitive sport."
             - Serge Schmemann
             Maria Corte Maidagan
             "I think soccer is more respected now than it ever has been. You can see that in the numbers of young kids
             who are playing and the numbers of people who are coming to watch."
             -Brandi Chastain
             Rudy Gutierrez
             "A lot of people, when a guy scores a lot of goals, think, 'He's a great player', because a goal is very impor-
             tant, but a great player is a player who can do everything on the field. He can do assists, encourage his
             colleagues, give them confidence to go forward. It is someone who, when a team does not do well, becomes
             one of the leaders."
             Ricardo Martinez
             "Right through to the end of the last World Cup game, I still couldn't bear the thought of not being perfect
             or letting people down. "
             -Jonny Wilkinson
             Oscar Ramos
             "The best word to describe the current Chilean national team’s style of play is exciting. Comprised of
             players who are typically smaller in stature but technically superb, these guys lit up the FIFA World Cup
             group stages with expert displays in keeping possession and lightning quick counter attacking football."
             Mark Summers
             "As a footballer, you always want to test yourself against the best."
             - David Beckham
             John Mattos
             "Football is the poetry of a motion."
             - Pubudu Lasal Dissanayake
             Paul Cox
             "Everything I know about morality and the obligations of men, I owe it to football ."
             -Albert Camus
             Michal Dziekan
             "I think there are a lot of things that soccer does in the communities that transcend the soccer field."
             - Brandi Chastain
             Mark T Smith
             "Brazil goes into every World Cup expecting to win - so when it is in Brazil it is expected even more. You
             can't understand what the World Cup means to our country."
