#FootyFriday pits Africa against Asia in a one off match
Samuel Eto'o, Roger Milla, Venus Williams and now... PUMA Football. Yes, we've just joined the stellar list of names that the Cameroon team's physio Daniel Tcky has pummelled into submission.
We thought it would be fun, even relaxing, but the reality is that Daniel is used to massaging far tougher bodies than our puny frame. So instead of gently falling asleep on the treatment table we feel like we're being operated on without anaesthetic.
PUMAFootball: You've played in Spain, now Italy, what does it mean to come back to Africa and hear the fans cheer for you?
ETO'O: It is an honor for me to play all the time in African stadia. I believe that my dearest - dearest dream is always to return. Every time I go away, I tell myself Samuel, when will you come back?? And every time I come back, I really enjoy it. Yesterday, despite the fact we lost, you can see that, here, where I live in Africa, people are proud to see me again. I can use the occasion to tell the spectators that I have to thank them for their welcome yesterday in the stadium. And, yesterday, I couldn't score, I tried to do my best but that depends on how you see it; I hope we will be luckier on Sunday. I hope I'll score and I hope that I'll be able to put my teammates in better positions so that they can score.
Over the past few days, PUMAFootball may have developed a bit of a man crush on Cameroon's legendary No.9. It's not just that the ever smiling striker bounded over to us at the Indomitable Lions training ground in Lubango to say hello, it's that he introduced himself by name. As if we wouldn't know who he was! But this charming man hasn't got just us under his spell; the whole of Africa seems to adore him.
What do you get when you pick one of our times most acclaimed and groundbreaking artists; give him a PUMA v.1.10 Boot - and let him unleash his talent on it.
In his second collaboration with PUMA, Kehinde Wiley, with his signature graphic prints inspired by the bold colors of Africa, took the v.1.10 football boot and made it into something extraordinary. Together, the product statements help set the stage for the ongoing PUMA Global Football campaign that is leading up to and through the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
