Thanks, Caper - that looks good, and it's just the right length. smiley - ok
I'll drop it into the piece tomorrow, I'm a bit smiley - sleepy now!

There's just one line I don't understand: 'The partnership between Ronaldo and Rivaldo soon fired up with fierce contempt...'

Contempt for whom? Each other? The Turks? smiley - huh

Ormy - before I forget, should there be an example of the 'stare of death' for those who don't know what that is?

Congrats to the Brazilians, hard luck to the Germans.
I thought it could have gone either way.
As my son was supporting Brazil, I was {secretly} plumping for Germany.

Collina in 'yellow card mode' smiley - bigeyes - probably at his most intimidating in the Final smiley - yikes

AGB - it was wonderful - as well as Beckenbauer right next to him; it says something about the whole tournament, that gamesmanship still shines through smiley - magic

Thank you greatly for those, WD. That one of Collina really is something, isn't it? I think that's the picture to illustrate the 'stare of death'! smiley - yikes

I'm going to put the last touches to the piece tomorrow, so please take a look later in the day if you can. Your comments will be very welcome, as long as they're not too rude! I'm still working on the bit about the final, and when that's done there's a lot of text to check through, but I plan to have the entry in Peer Review some time on Tuesday. smiley - smileysmiley - football

Wonderful - I won't be nasty at all smiley - devil

Glad to help though; it's been a pleasure writing the summaries in between on-calls smiley - biggrin

Collina is probably one of the scariest refs I have ever seen, however I think the BBC interviewed him before the Argentina/England match and he seems like a really nice bloke... strange really smiley - bigeyes
