    • and yet...

      "Nike pays USD $16 million (13 million Euro) a year to the Brazilian national football team and adidas pays USD $1.8 million (1.5 million Euro) per year to French player Zinedine Zidane. Meanwhile the Asian workers who make the football boots and other sports gear worn by players are paid as little as 47 cents Euro per hour — 3.76 Euro for a standard working day. Shopping at their cheapest local markets, women producing brand-name sportswear in Indonesia need to work 3.75 hours to earn enough to purchase 1.5kg of uncooked chicken, which for some is all the meat they can afford for a month."
      See: www.oxfam.org/en/policy/briefingnotes/offside_labor_report

      "With seven million fans expected to attend the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany and reports of a large brothel being constructed close to the main venue for the football event in Berlin, UNICEF today expressed its deep concern about the potential increase in trafficking of children and women into sexual exploitation during the event."

      Just some thoughts
      Uh.. Cheers, HansNL

      Thanks Damo, yes, it's sad to be eliminated like this, but they were kind of paralyzed by the stake. The team is the youngest of the cup, so let's see what they will accomplish at the Euro 2008, in Switzerland and Austria.
