A recent Sky Sports news article is encouraging – Roberto Baggio is coming back to soccer in a role with Italy’s national team. After a disastrous 2010 World Cup campaign, it’s good to see Baggio being mentioned as part of Italy’s rebuilding.
[singlepic id=7 w=200 h=150 float=right]For me, Baggio represented an entirely new era in playing and succeeding in playing soccer. A little guy, Baggio was able to throw an entire country on his back and pull them through the finals. While the ending wasn’t fit for a fairytale, the fact he was able to do what he did was astonishing.
I’ll be watching his upcoming success just as intently.
