"I go about the world, hand outstretched, and in the stadiums I plead, 'A pretty move, for the love of God.' And when good football happens, I give thanks for the miracle, and I don't give a damn which team or country performs it." - Eduardo Galeano
Do you remember what it feels like to enter a stadium? To hear thousands chanting in unison, arm in arm, with their scarves raised in the air as they celebrate the eternal glory of a goal.
Do you feel the energy of a commentator as they describe with poetry and poise the artistry on the pitch? How each pass is depicted as if it was a painting, adding soundtrack to the cinematic grandeur of the game.
Or perhaps, as fans, as supporters, it's the conversation and camaraderie that you miss the most and how, no matter the distance, we're all connected to this game because it brings us together.
No matter what we love most about this game, and no matter what you call it - soccer, football, fútbol, calcio - we're all the same, following the same religion, believing in the most beautiful of all games.
So in these times, when we feel disconnected from the world, we are here to bring back all those feelings and remind you that football is alive and well.
