I'm not really much of a soccer fan. I did get hooked during the last World Cup. That's when I learned what an "own-goal" is - kicking the ball into your own net (hence scoring for the other team). If I recall correctly the eventual champion Italy scored an own-goal for the USA and still beat them handily (or should that be footily?). Ronaldinho is the present day Pele on the Brazilian team.
