As a fan-atic of football since birth, I have been impressed by many
different football players. Almost none from my "homeland" (place of
birth-Sweden). From Pele, to Cruyff (sp?), to Beckenbauer, and even
the play of Diego (but not his lifestyle) I enjoy good football no
matter the team or country (well, maybe I have to root against the
Norwegians always :-)). Hear, hear and well said Francis.
