A balls-up from Fifa

Daily Star - - NEWS -

FIFA’S ball boffins have been at it again ahead of the World Cup.

Ev­ery tour­na­ment keep­ers live in fear of the wacky ex­per­i­ments its creators will pull to make the “per­fect” of­fi­cial ball.

And Adidas’s Tel­star ap­pears no dif­fer­ent.

The men be­tween the sticks are al­ready com­plain­ing it’s “a night­mare”.

To make mat­ters worse, the last two win­ners of foot­ball’s show­piece – Ger­many and Spain – have al­ready tested it out in a friendly. As if they need an ex­tra ad­van­tage?

Of course Adidas are bank­ing on mak­ing a killing on it, sell­ing it on­line for £129.95.

Let’s hope Eng­land stop­pers Jack But­land, Jor­dan Pick­ford and Nick Pope man­age to get their hands on one early.
