Singing player is pitch perfect

June 27, 2014

One of the most interesting features of the entertaining World Cup has been each country's singing of their respective national anthems. Taking centre stage and without a doubt the star performer is Brazil'sDani Alves with his passionate performances. Possibly he may have a singing career after his playing days are over.

Compare this with the sullen silence each time coming from Karim Benzema (born in Lyon) of France. Having lived myself in France for several years it is difficult to think of a more stirring national anthem than La Marseillaise in the world.
