This little clip tells you more about Italian passion and culture than three weeks of site seeing;-)
You don't have to understand a word of Italian to get the story.
And yes: Soccer does matter and is obviously more important than trivial questions about life or death;-)

The very super best collection of soccer mishaps. MUST SEE !!!!!!!
This one can't be topped. It should have been reserved for the last day of the countdown but I couldn't control myself.
Sit down with a cup of coffee and enjoy this collection for the connoisseurs.

Alan Hansen didn't switch of his phone and sure enough it starts ringing during a live broadcast.
We are already looking forward to the best studio mishaps during the World Cup ;-)

Fortunately this guy from the Austrian Red Cross won't be needed this summer in Germany.
His move obviously required a lot of practice.
I am sure the player had a few words to say about his.
Maybe the Red Cross helper thought the player is just faking it and ...

This is a longer clip with an old, not-so-hip-anymore song in the background. I would strongly recommend to turning your sound off.
But many of the scenes are quite brilliant and make this video worth checking out.

This clip is what I hope to see at the World Cup.
Explosive activity out of the midfield, fast combinations and some nice execution at the end.
Gareth Barry from Aston Villa shows us how it's done...

Another Nike video starring mostly Brazilian ball artists.
They're gonna take the ball, our women, the cup and leave us with nothing.
Unless we distract them a little bit. Maybe we send them shopping for German cars and they will be late for their game.
Or we talk to the French and find ...

The top ten goals of 2004 - most of them from the European Championship.
There is some pretty good action in this clip.
The best goal is saved for the end. Henrik Larsson from Sweden with a magical motion.
Yes we do believe in higher powers. They usually wear short ...

This must be a bit older since passing back to the goalie is not allowed any longer.
But watch what happens next.
I am from a city named Darmstadt in Germany. We had a goalie named Huxhorn who did exactly the same thing some time in the 80's. ...

Hard to believe that this guy is for real.
Some refs are definitely a bit full of themselves or have problems with their ego.
This guy's body language tops everything you might ever see in a professional dance tournament.
They should play the music of the video in the ...

I think this is the funniest soccer ad I've seen this year.
I know who I'll be rooting for. He already has my vote.
Must see material.

Eric Cantona went a long way from his Kung Fu kick days to become the soccer ambassador of Nike.
He seems to be at the right place.
In this commercial he introduces street soccer. This one went around the world and back already as it is part of the ...

Usually soccer fans are very nice and decent people.
There are just a few exceptions.
Here is one of them.
I am asking myself what happened between the guys before this scene? What do you have to say to trigger such a reaction?
Another mystery in the world of soccer...

Time to go a bit Urban today. No pitch activity in this one but some cool juggling, dancing, acrobatic scenes. All Ali G. style ;-)
You won't break any catenaccio that way but it looks pretty.
No worries: We'll be back to the pitch again. I overdose very quickly ...

Ever wonder how so many guys are so sophisticated in faking a foul?
Take a look at this video then.
Let's hope this was all just a joke. Practicing dives should be banned.
I could do without those scenes this summer but with so much glory at stake we will ...
