…via David Squires, here’s an in-depth analysis of FIFA’s anti-discrimination messages.
ICYMI: Napoli’s Gonzalo Higuaín has sent the Albiceleste through to the semifinals for the first time in 24 years. Forza Pipita!
ICYMI: Alessandro Del Piero provided commentary for Sky Sport’s broadcast of today’s match between Argentina and Switzerland. Doesn’t he look the part?
There may be the best World Cup ever going on in Brazil, but meanwhile, the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio has been lit up in red and white in honour of Canada Day - proof that everyone, everywhere, loves Canadians!
Our hearts where they rocked our cradle,
our love where we spent our toil,
and our faith, and our hope, and our honor,
we pledge to our native soil.
God gave all men all earth to love,
but since our hearts are small,
ordained for each one spot should prove
Beloved over all.
- Rudyard Kipling
