Soccer.Football (The Most Beautiful Game)
Welcome to the Christmas Edition of 'The Most Beautiful Game' your BellaOnline newsletter from the Soccer Editor.
In this issue:
World Player of the Year Awards.
The new England manager.
Bend it like Beckham.
17th December 2007. This day saw the announcement of the World Player of the Year Awards for 2007. The Winners are Kaka, and Marta.
You can read articles about both the awards, and the background on each winner and the runners up here on the Bella Online Soccer Site.
The voting is now closed, but you can still discuss your favourite player here on the forum, and make perhaps even suggest who the “ones to watch” are for next year's awards.
Also on the Soccer forum, I have introduced myself to you readers, and encourage you to leave your feedback there, or perhaps a place to chat with other football/soccer lovers from all over the world.
Hello, dear readers.
The latest news on the vacant England managers position. The job goes to Fabio Capello who was presented at an FA Press Conference yesterday.
I have published an article about the Press Conference, and will follow up later this week with a feature on the managers history and achievements.
Fabio Capello – New England Manager
Discuss the appointment of Fabio Capello on the Soccer Forum.
The new manager was asked about former England Captain David Beckham, who is hoping to pick up his 100th England Cap in Capello's first match in charge, a friendly against Switzerland in February. He said he was a great sportsman and a great man.
No decisions have been taken about the squad. Beckham also appeared recently on the TV Talk Show “Parkinson's Final Interview” and said he will always be honoured to be chosen to play for England.
