To get a
break from soccer, players say that they…play soccer?  Video
games give them some relief
from the game and keep them entertained as they
watch themselves on the screen.

might remember the tragic murder of Colombian soccer player Andres Escobar,
following a 1994 World Cup match when he scored for the opposing team. Tonight
