Ronaldo, Robinho, Ronaldinho, Kaká, Adriano, Dida, Cafu, Lúcio, Roberto Carlos ... the list goes on.

Including my favorite, Palea. 

A college friend (Ukrainian, born in Brazil) was an incredible soccer player.  I loved watching Andrij's sissors kick, but the best ever was watching him completely horizontal to the ground and head the ball into the goal -- especially when it was the winning goal.

Pelé's real name was Edson Arantes Do Nascimento ...  8)

Pelé played in four World Cups with Brazil's National Team.  In 1958, at the age of 17, he scored six goals, including two in the championship game to help Brazil win its first World Cup 5-2 over Sweden. He almost missed the games because of a knee injury.

Wasn't your friend from Argentina?   :tease:

Darn -- you posted while I was editing.  Guess I won't bother editing now.  :D

Yes, Andrij was from Argentina and I meant Pelé.  Its hard to get soccer facts straight while eating chocolate.

Ha ha ha ............. :Win73:

3-0 , it´s a disgrace.None of the Swedish players were at their usual standard, they acted like a bunch of junior players on a training camp.
Best player on the field, with no competition, was Robbie Keane.

Die Hard :)

Die Hard ..Man of the Match Damien Duff’s first goal well that was a deflection by a Swedish player in to his own net.

The second goal by Tottenham Hotspur striker Robbie Keane, captaining the side for the first time it was different just two minutes into the second half with a super right-foot volley following a defence-splitting pass from Ian Harte.

The best, though, was reserved for Leeds United midfielder Liam Miller given time and space in embarking on a run from the halfway line before despatching a clinical right-foot shot from 25-yards beyond the flailing Andreas Isaksson. :lol:

I know Sweden are a good side, I am sure they will be a lot better than this at the World Cup.

So bring on the world cup in Germany in June I for one will be supporting Sweden. :gwave:

That was great.The hockey-team came to to Stockholm on monday. There had built a stage on one of the major squares where they recieved the cheers from the people.
I took my two youngest sons and went there to salute them.

Even the female hockey team was there, celebrating their silver medal:

Any pictures of the Swedish Bikini Team?   :Yahoo:

(You can Google, if you don't know this was a promotion for Old Milwaukee beer ads in the early '90s)

They deserve the tribute, Die Hard -- and what a tribute it appears to have been!  The size of the crowd is fantastic.

Is that the common reaction when you see a Swedish girl ?  :muahaha:  :tease:



Ok, here we go :


Now that the new official Swedish Bikini Team has emerged from the friendly fiords of Scandinavia, it is time to pay our respects to the original Swedish Bikini Team. May they rest in blissful harmony in permanent exile and may they lead healthy, wealthy, happy lives.
