Dále, Kaká!

“I think that things are getting better for me, above all at my club. I’m playing more often at Madrid. The supporters are showing that they appreciate me and that is an extra motivation. Now I hope to make the most of this chance with Brazil.”

Hampered by injuries for the latter part of his career, Kaká has worked persistently to regain his place, not only with Real Madrid, but with the Brazilian national team as well. Things are getting better, but there’s still room for improvement, and tonight, as Brazil takes on Italy, Ricky has a golden opportunity to prove himself once again.

From his first days with Sao Paulo until his last, how can you not be supporting Kaká for one last run with the Selecão? [Posted by Maxi]

As if we needed another reason to love Ronaldinho even more, the Brazilian superstar took some time after his training regimen to practice his freestyle skills with a lucky young fan.

World Cup Legends by Neil Stevens

“As the countdown to the World Cup in Brazil 2014 begins, I’ve created a handful of illustrative portraits of the legends of the tournament. These are the players who lit up the world with the performances at football’s biggest stage. 

Here we have Maradona, Bobby Charlton, Pelé, Johan Cruyff, Gary Lineker and Michel Platini.”

This is only volume one. There are more legends coming. If there’s enough interest (nudge nudge), Neil’s going to make these available to purchase. You can find more of his excellent work here. [Posted by Eric]
