Long Live The Beautiful Game

“It represents a victory for the beautiful game, with the accent placed on attractive football,” said Michel Platini, the Uefa president, of Europe’s strong showing. “It’s just reward for the long-term efforts of three football associations [the semi-finalists Spain, Holland, Germany] who have invested in education and training. Three teams with youth and freshness at their heart, deploying playing systems that leave considerable room for creativity.”

* When sport transcends to the point of Art, it is called “The Beautiful Game.”
