BBC News...

Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina have been demoted to the second division for their involvement in Italy's match-fixing scandal.

AC Milan will stay in Serie A but will lose 15 points and will be kicked out of the Champions League.

Juventus were also stripped of their last two titles and had 30 points deducted meaning that they are almost certain to stay down for two seasons...

... Thirteen of Italy's World Cup-winning squad play for the clubs involved...

You know, if folks in Europe could work on their hand - eye coordination they may be able to put aside that soccor and play baseball or football.

Steve,
We actually already play football ( you guys call it soccer)also cricket arguably needs as much if not more hand - eye co-ordination than baseball ( we play that as kids and call it Rounders),We also have two codes of Rugby -League and Union (Football to you).
So we are probably a bit ahead of you at this point in time.

Yeah, any overweight, uncoordinated, non-athletic Klutz could do that soccer stuff.

Yes... the Italian Paolo Rossi was handed a three-year ban for his role in match-fixing in the late 70s/early 80s... the ban was reduced to two years so he could play in the 1982 World Cup which Italy went on to win... Rossi finished top scorer!
