During yesterday's halftime between USA/Guatemala, an advertisement from Eric Cantona appeared. Actually, it showed a German football show and Eric and his band invade the studio and take it over. Eric lambastts the current style of football saying something like "the cheating, the violence must stop..the game must be beautiful again". I was astonished as I have been thinking how the game has lost it's beauty due to the unnecessary fouls, shirt pulling, late violenty tackles, etc.

It's about time that someone took a stand and Eric at the end pleaded for everyone "to make the game beautiful again".

Has this played in Europe or anywhere else?

yeah I've seen, I've got it on DVD.
he was in London to launch it along with this new football game.

Rooney, Ronaldo, Rio/Anton Ferdinand, Keane, Fabregas were also there.

There must be a clip of it somewhere.... if I can't find I'll make one.

Funny, I saw the irony in it too.

Either way, I am sure the ads will be entertaining as we get to the WC. Nike is repeating its formula from the last WC.

No, I don't think it is the cage tournament.

It will be a series of ads that highlight the 5 things Cantona talks about in the ad. Teamwork, Courage, Grace....blah...blah...blah. So, I think we will be seeing alot of Msr Cantona over the coming months.

And, you can always go to www.nikesoccer.com :) They have everything you need to know.
