Football and faith?

What role should religion have in football? The BBC's World Service programme Heart and Soul takes a look. 16 mins or so into the programme WYSOCS' Mark Roques is interviewed. Mark, author of Fields of God, makes a great case for football as an expression of the glory of God: football can be redeemed. Playing football is part of the good creation.

The programme can be heard here.

Here's the Colombian goalkeeper, Rene Higuita's scorpion kick Mark mentioned.
