Motion text

That this House salutes the memory of Tele Santana, one of Brazil's greatest football coaches, who died in late April 2006 aged 74 in Belo Horizonte; notes that Santana, who led Brazil at the 1982 and 1986 World Cups and won the Libertadores Cup twice in a row with Sao Paulo was widely respected for his sense of fair play and his refusal to use rough-arm tactics; commends his views that `Football is art, it's enjoyment and it's not about hoofing the ball up field', and `I'd rather lose the game than tell my team to foul, kick the opponents or win an illegitimate goal'; and hopes that the forthcoming World Cup is played in the spirit of football that Tele Santana embodied.
