Faith and football
Angelo in the comments mentioned that religious gestures have been banned by football. I see no lessening of footballers crossing themselves. It seems it's religious and political T-shirts that have been banned. I'm not sure how they could stop the footie players crossing themselves. Kaka, is very devout, it seems, albeit, sadly in Brazil, an evangelical Christian. Good on him for standing up for Our Lord.
England players (and especially Wayne Rooney) should note, Nobby Stiles attended Mass every day through the campaign, including the morning of the Final in 1966.
