Photographer's Note

Football is called "the beautiful game"...and sometimes it really is.

The first set of rules for 'modern' football was written down in Cambridge in 1848 and the first football association (the English FA) was established in 1863, followed by the foundation of the international FIFA in Paris in 1904.

Sheffield FC, founded in 1857, is considered to be the oldest football club. The oldest clubs outside of the English speaking world are Le Havre Athletic Club (1872), Kobenhavn Boldklub (1876), Koninklijke Haarlem FC (1879) and my hometown club, Royal Antwerp FC (1880).

These days football is big business. This weekend's Manchester derby is reported to have been on TV in a world record of 190 countries, but I wonder if a late evening game on a beach isn't more fun, really.

I'll ask Kevin De Bruyne...
