Tactical rampage down a Sao Paolo beach with two precious socks rolled together. The rattle of a dribbled tin can on the lanes snaking through the Buenos Aires shantytowns.Soccer is sport at its most elemental: Anything can be a ball, anywhere a field of dreams, only passion the mandatory shirt to be pulled on. In this primitiveness of soccer rests its universal appeal; in its intrinsic dance-wingers spinning away from markers,strikers pirouetting in the box, midfielders on spiralling runs-lies its aesthetic value. Holland striker Marco van Basten flew across the field with such sinewy splendour that a Dutch TV documentary compared his movements to a ballet dancer’s. When Brazilian Ronaldo burst like a weaving ox through defences, a Spanish journalist wrote: “He has the constitution of a champion boxer, but the feet of Fred Astaire.Yet greatness has one final measurement. In Yaounde, Cameroon, stands a statue of Roger Milla; in Sao Paolo the faithful explain that when Pele meets the Pope, it is Pele who is granting the audience; in Buenos Aires boys still genuflect at the altar of a factory worker’s son called Diego Maradona. It is the worship accorded to men who danced their finest on the World Cup stage.by Rohit Brijnathlast_img read more
