Press interval

The latest from the Fabio Cannavaro bandwagon was the press conference at the Sofitel Phokeethra, that went without a hitch after more dummy-runs than you can shake a stick at. Fabio walked into a packed conference room and into a wall of flashlights, before taking his place on the stage. With three languages in use throughout, the conference got a bit chaotic at times without a three-way translation, but after a few speeches and a handful of questions from journalists to the guest of honour, it was soon over and Fabio made time to have his photo taken and sign autographs for everyone in the room. He then did a couple of 1-on-1 interviews for the television cameras before heading for lunch. The former Italian captain said he was very happy to come to Cambodia, to pass on his experiences as a top player and to promote football to the youngsters especially. Confirming that winning the World Cup was the biggest highlight of his career, not just for himself but for his whole country, he also said that his medium height was never a disadvantage against the best strikers as he played with his head and his heart. And this would be his advice to young players today.

Nice pic Andy, is that your brother? He doesn't look like you. Were you adopted?

Hello Soma, not sure what you are trying to imply with your comment :-)
I don't believe I was adopted but anything is possible.
Everyone thinks we love similar, but he's younger and taller.
