In order to mark his recent announcement to retire from professional football, David Beckham and long standing partner adidas have produced a unique pair of boots celebrating his illustrious playing career.
In 1998 Nike launched the first Mercurial football boot — a
shoe inspired by and designed for an athlete who was playing an entirely
new brand of football. The player was Brasilian football
phenomenon Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, popularly dubbed "El Fenómeno," but more commonly known as Ronaldo.
On December 16, 1990, Corinthians made history
collecting their first Brasilian National Championship. On that hot
December Sunday, the club's supporters, known as the "Fiel" (the
Faithful), made up more than 80 percent of the crowd at Morumbi Stadium.
