PLAYED A BLIN­DER

FourFourTwo - - EDITOR'S LETTER -

Ste­fan Grey: Per­suad­ing a no­to­ri­ous hard man to show his play­ful side isn’t easy, but ex­pert snap­per Ste­fan was able to get for­mer Man City and Nether­lands mid­fielder Nigel de Jong to pose with a toy lawn­mower. “He’d had a long week, but was more than will­ing to play along.” Martin Bowyer: Man­cu­nian il­lus­tra­tor Martin – based in Den­mark – brought to life our list of the World Cup’s worst ever villains. “It was re­ally good fun to work on. I was laugh­ing as I was draw­ing, es­pe­cially when it came to the Brazil­ian wa­ter bot­tle in­ci­dent. Poor old Branco!” Felipe Rocha: The Brazil­ian jour­nal­ist chat­ted with the man cred­ited with turn­ing around the for­tunes of the Sele­cao – head coach Tite. “He’s done a fan­tas­tic job to get Brazil back play­ing with the swag­ger we’re used to see­ing. And by the way, his name’s pro­nounced chi-chi!”
