"Football is a simple game; 22 men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans win. "
Gary Lineker, 1990

I'm looking forward to the match on Sunday :la:
And i just HAD to think of this classical quote and wanted to turn it into a text art :XD:

it's rather simple, but thats what i wanted to go for

Fonts used are Code Light & Bold and Didot

--

The slight grain effect i applied to this image is based on a tutorial by ^ChewedKandi How to Create Multi-tone Vector Noise
sooo, this is 100% vector :B

I'm afraid i can't do that. for once I created this in Illustrator not Photoshop, and then i don't like to share the original files to my art :)

i hope you understand :)

Jetzt wissen es zumindestens auch die Brasilianer [Gestern U17 WM Spiel um Platz drei: Brasilien-Deutschland 3:4 (3:1)]!!! Super Spiel übrigens, von wegen die Frauen spielen besser, die waren ja ganz schön enttäuschend. Und ein gern zitierter Spruch, klasse umgesetzt!

haha i guess that quote was about England vs Germany :XD:

they just played horrible football, totally underestimate the will of the Japanese. it'S time the german coach resigns, cos she obviously lost track to reality :B

i dont know if there are any quotes on that... but i know they wouldnt look good for the English :lol:

of course... ;-)
they played with no system and with no leader in the team.
now they had enough time to start a new series.

oh well, I'm just sad for Veron and Palermo, both amazing players and it was their last world cup :cries:

I hope Maradona stays for next WC, I don't know why on earth he arranged the team like that to face Germany...I mean, it Germany for christ sake, not Greece!! but I think he needs to learn from his mistakes and once he does that...I think he'll be a great coach ^^
