On Wednesday, May 27th, FC Barcelona (of Spain, duh) defeated Manchester United (of England) in the UEFA Champion's League. This soccer tournament - played concurrently during the season - is one where all the top teams from the top leagues in Europe work their way through bracket play. These are league teams (not national teams), therefore some of the best players from the entire world are usually involved in the finals. In other words, to football loving countries, this tournament is heavy duty. Barcelona won, 2-0.
In scoring a goal in the 10th minute, Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o (a member of Cameroon's national team) changed the entire pace of the match, which had been dominated by Manchester's Cristiano Ronaldo (a hunky, super-duper, Beckham-esque megastar from Portugal). A 70th minute goal by Lionel Messi (Argentina's less-hunky answer to Ronaldo) effectively sealed the game.
