VoetbalIn its one and a half century of life, soccer has helped telling the story of societies in transformation. Under the eye of such simple and at the same time magnetic game, passionate, tragic, sublime and dramatic moments have been registered. Like a faithful portrait of the people who adopted it, soccer witnesses both social barbarities and episodes of collective joy; it has suffered threats and been unfair; it has distributed pleasures and ecstasies with the same agility it has produced traumas and minor suffering, but it has always been there. It is not by chance that this original and skilful form of group competition which highlights individualities is the only human activity known to be followed every day of the week, anytime and anywhere by nothing less than four billion people. There are neither geographical frontiers nor social barriers for those who appreciate the game. The spectacle of soccer may be expensive and unaffordable, the guts of the sport may be obscure, like so ma
VoetbalNever in the last 110 years, has the World Cups’ trajectory been disconnected from the socioeconomic reality of the world’s nations whether they have taken part in the championship or not. Even before becoming a multibillion dollar event that involves billions of people as well, this international football championship, which takes place every four years, has been marked by countless ups and downs in the international political scenario, doubts and tragedies, growth and technical evolution, social mobilization and use of vested powers. The landmark of a World football championship as an independent event, aside from the Olympic Games, was firstly thought of at FIFA’s very foundation, in 1904, but effectively launched after the First World War, being the first Host country (Uruguay) defined in 1929, during FIFA’s congress, which was held in Barcelona, being the atmosphere of yet intense geopolitical unrest. At that meeting, it was decided that the championship should be h

VoetbalIn his memoir, Coming Out To Play , Robbie Rogers told the story of his incredible journey from terrified teenager to a trailblazing out and proud professional soccer player for the L.A. Galaxy. Since it was published, he has recieved letters from countless readers from all walks of life, all across the world, telling him how he has given them hope and that after reading his story, they felt compelled to share their own.

This is why Rogers has collected these letters: to show those suffering in silence that they are not alone.

Different formations can be used depending on whether a team wishes to play more attacking or defensive football. Formations are used in both professional and amateur football matches. In amateur matches, however, these tactics are sometimes adhered to less strictly due to the lesser significance of the occasion. Skill and discipline on the part of the players is also needed to implement a given formation effectively in professional football.

VoetbalEm um século e meio de vida, o futebol ajudou a contar a história das sociedades em transformação. Sob o olhar desse jogo simples e ao mesmo tempo magnético foram registrados momentos apaixonantes, trágicos, sublimes e dramáticos. Como um fiel retrato dos povos que o adotaram, o futebol foi testemunha tanto de barbaridades sociais quanto de episódios de júbilo coletivo, sofreu e cometeu injustiças, distribuiu prazeres e êxtase com a mesma desenvoltura com que produziu grandes traumas e pequenas mazelas, mas esteve sempre presente.
