Save the beautiful game

FOOTBALL, or also known as soccer, is the sports with the largest following in the world and it best manifests the phenomenon of globalisation. More than in any other experience, football has shown itself capable of melting national borders down as supporters from all over the world follow specific teams, whether clubs or national. The approaching World Cup competition, to be staged in Brazil some couple of months away, is the best example of how meaningless national borders can become despite the teams themselves representing specific nations. Brazil, arguably the most popular team in the world, is again a hot favourite to take the Cup for the fifth time. The Brazilian footballers, too, can claim to have set the standards of skill in the game to turn it into what it is today. The legendary Pele, who later became a national politician, but with an international following as a footballer, was credited with the banana kick that sent a football on a curved path to bypass a wall of opponents and then to land spectacularly in the net.
