    Zapatista Rebels - Inter



    "....a curious friendly match has been set up for this summer, as the armed Zapatista rebels of Mexico announced that Inter had agreed to play a team of their members." - channel 4 Football Italia

    This will be interesting!

    Anyone know the date of the game? And location?

    Is it supposed to be a joke or something? But I hope they kidnap Roberto Materazzi, Branca and Oriali thinking we will pay for them...

    Oh, you still don't know. Materazzi is going by the first name Roberto now after Roberto Carlos, after his 98-RCarlos-like performance against Cagliari.

    I read about this a couple of weeks back - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4537859.stm

    Zapatista rebels woo Inter Milan

    The captain of Inter Milan football club says he would be willing to take up an invitation for the club to play a team of Mexican Zapatista rebels.


    Subcomandante Marcos promised Milan would not be thrashed

    The Italian club have received a letter from the indigenous movement, based in the southern state of Chiapas.

    Rebel leader Subcomandante Marcos asked Inter to bring the match ball because the Zapatistas' ones were punctured.

    Captain Javier Zanetti said: "It is not a problem for me if [the club] accept the challenge. I'd be willing to go."

    The letter bore the signature of Subcomandante Marcos, the elusive Zapatista leader known for his trademark balaclava and pipe.

    It was formal and precise, but contained a touch of the wry humour that is the leader's hallmark, says BBC correspondent Mark Duff in Milan.

    Rigorous training

    "I challenge you to a match against a team from the Zapatista national liberation army," it said, "at a time and a place to be determined."

    "Given the affection we have for you, we're not planning to submerge you in goals," the letter went on.

    "As we wait for your reply, we'll continue with our rigorous training regime."

    Inter - one of Italy's biggest and most famous clubs - have built links with the Zapatistas by funding sports, water and health projects in their area of operation in Chiapas.


    Zanetti has expressed his support for Chiapas people

    Team manager Bruno Bartolozzi paid a visit to a village in Chiapas last June, bearing donations from the club and its owner, Massimo Moratti. During the trip, he was approached by a Zapatista commander.

    Zanetti, an Argentine, also wrote a letter to express his support for the rebels' "struggle to maintain your roots and fight for your ideals".

    The club told the BBC News website that no decision had been made on whether to accept the challenge.

    The Zapatistas are demanding greater autonomy and indigenous rights. Their campaign has been largely peaceful since January 1994, when at least 150 people died in clashes.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, i guess now nobody really wants to mess with Inter anymore. It's not just about Matrix, Miha, Deki or Cordoba anymore..

    Subcomandante Marcos has revealed his team will be using this formation:

    1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1

    And in their team will be Maribel Domėnguez who plays for Barcelona's female team.

    Well I actually found this on a news report!

    And even stranger, I also heard a rumour that Mr.Marcos wants Maradona to referee the game.

    Honestly, even that porky Ecuadorian that screwed Italy out of WC 2002 could do much better than Maradona. I can imagine the paramedics having to treat Diego for fatigue after half time.

    And what the hell is a formation of 1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1? Domino rally?

    And then we can all end it by smoking the specially Maradona-selected dope.

    Oh man, this is one strange game. But hey, it could be a turning point.

    Well.. for one, the Zapatista Rebels are friends of Inter?

    And also because Capitano personally endorses their right to sovereignty?

    Well, I hope we don't score too many goals, since we don't know what will happen if they get pissed.

    And, what the hell is a 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1 formation? I can't even imagine it.
