Over the past month I’d been saving my newspapers for World Cup Football pictures that would otherwise be difficult to come by. This for my CapsToKeep fridge magnets – Brazil 2014 specials!
While flipping through the newspaper pile, I chanced upon the Hindustan Times (HT) 29th June 2014. This was just after the group matches, and carried a Football “Dream Team”.
The article went like this:
After going through various statistical highlights and the impact a player has had, HT puts together a World XI after the preliminary round.
It is interesting to note that not one of the players from the winning German team made it to this World XI.
The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime. – Babe Ruth (Baseball)
The secret is to work less as individuals and more as a team. As a coach, I play not my eleven best, but my best eleven. – Knute Rockne (American Football)
Football is truly a team game!
