Yeah, I thought I saw that on the Sky Sports News ticker last night and figured I'd had too much wine and it was time to go to my bed.

During a trade show in Burundi a few years prior I caught a game between Vital O and Tourbillon of Chad, I believe it was a friendly. Very highly paced gamed.

Brazillian FA sold off the 'rights' to host games to Kentaro iirc. So they never play in Brazil any more, but in soulless places like Doha, Zimbabwe and Wembley.

Oh Kentaro:

Brazil's 2002 World Cup-winning team will play a friendly next month in the formerly wartorn Russian province of Chechnya, a local official said Wednesday.

Chechnya's government website cited sports minister Haidar Alkhanov as saying Kaka, Ronaldinho and the recently retired Ronaldo are likely to feature in the March 10 match. Chechnya president Ramzan Kadyrov will captain a team comprising local players.

In what will go down as one of the most bizarre matches in footballing history, Chechnya hosted a game between some of the world's greatest players and a side comprising Chechen and Russian players, captained by the Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadyrov.

With an 11pm start time, the former Liverpool and Real Madrid midfielder Steve McManaman, the ex-Italian defender Franco Baresi, former French goalkeeper Fabien Barthez and the ex-Portuguese player Luis Figo, in addition to Maradona and Fowler, were among those invited to attend. The World Cup-winning French midfielder Zinedine Zidane denied reports he would play.

[...]

The half-time entertainment – almost as stellar as the footballing legends on the pitch – was provided by R&B performer Craig David.

captained by the Chechen leader, Ramzan Kadyrov.

It's a WTF enough story without me misreading that as "captured by the Chechen leader".

charlie adam's sister's pants (onimo), Thursday, 12 May 2011 10:55 (nine years ago) link

I'd been wondering how Gullit was getting on in Chechnya - still wondering after reading this. Subject seems ripe for a dispatch from Jonathan Wilson, though Kadyrov is probably a difficult interview to line up.

Wisla Krakow have somehow managed to sign Kuba Błaszczykowski from Wolfsburg and get kicked out of the Polish league for financial irregularities in the same day.

They were taken over by a consortium of gangsters and hooligans a couple of years ago, which went about as well as you would expect, and seemed to have been sold to a Cambodia investor just before Christmas but something has evidently gone wrong with that.

thx for this noodle. watched it today, cracking stuff, tho in a time of social distancing some of the diego being mobbed in the streets wobbly hand cam footage freaked me out a little. know it's not an original thought but oh to see a peak maradona playing on 2020 pitches under 2020 rules. the number of terrible tackles he just rode and stumbled onward from was amazing.

oscar bravo, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 20:45 (six months ago) link

i know! it's a really well put together film. watching the clogging he routinely got, and you think about cliches about Italian defending but imagine how much worse the average shitkicker was in England at the time. tbh i'd never spent so much time just watching how incredible his movement and control was

Two Gentlemen with the Rona (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 20:48 (six months ago) link

it's really good at opening a window into the ways football is seen and played and thought about outside the anglo bubble as well i think, which i'm as guilty of as any lazy tv fan

Two Gentlemen with the Rona (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 20:50 (six months ago) link

i spent a lot of it thinking how much my old man wouldn't have got it, the entire culture would be so alien and bad to him and all of that belied by those clips of him playing

Two Gentlemen with the Rona (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 24 March 2020 20:52 (six months ago) link

i actually found it quite frightening, just impossible to imagine how anyone could deal with that level of adulation and expectation and of course he didn't deal with it. but yeah it was a level of fandom that i am not really familiar with tbh.

oscar bravo, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 20:57 (six months ago) link

also stuff that is either badly translated or more likely i am not understanding culturally re argentina in that i think more than one contributor possibly his trainer plus a journalist refers to diego as "that little black kid"

oscar bravo, Tuesday, 24 March 2020 20:59 (six months ago) link

yeah there are ilxors who'll understand that much better than me but my understanding is that South America has a lot of this kinda racial subdivision expressed thru the language, and then put that thru a translation into English and it won't be clear
