hi Paul

I agree with you about football. It is a global game. How could I otherwise cheer for Brazil, for Poland, for Turkey, for Holland, for Spain, for Italy [oh yes Italy, Platini], for France, for S Korea, for Japan, for China, for Cameroon, for Senegal, for Iran, for Iraq, for Nigera, for Sweden, for Denmark, for Croatia, for Ukraine, for Russia

[but seldom for USA, for England, for Scotland, for Australia - dont know why....]

irrespective of national countries, cultures, colors of skin or traditions, just play ball!

BUT I dislike the tobacco advertisements on the TV coverage, newsmedia sponsor commercials. Dunhill, Rothmans, Marlboro, Winston, Salem, Camel, Benson&Hedges, etc. Imagine how they affect young children in the jungle watching the TV games coverage. Well, we cannot win all. No sponsorship, no games? But I like the sponsorship and commercials from Adidas, Yonex, Wilson and all sports brands.

Just a thought. Nothing serious. Regards, bill

OK Bill,
I understood.
You're not a supporter of the Belgian national team :(
Regards, Paul :)

hi Paul

Sorry if I miss out any countries because I often get mixed up with these 2 great teams which are always in the final rounds of World Cup

Belgium and Holland
[Spain and Portugal also strong teams]
Because of your origin, I will pay attention to Belgium in next WC 2010 Game

regards, bill

Hi Bill,

I suggest you look out for the WC in 2014.
In 2010 we take a year off :)

In the history of our national football team we remember two years: 1986 (4th place in WC in Mexico) and 1980 (final against Germany in EC in Italy).

So how about Malaysia ?
You've all specialised in photography ?

Greetings,
Paul
