The Penitent Magdalen in a Landscape, Annibale Carracci
“The closing minutes of the World Cup qualification campaign is a time of great joy for those who have booked their places, and a time of sadness for those who have missed out. With its collection of great players from all over the planet, Europe’s Champions League is the place to be week in, week out. But the World Cup has its special magic precisely because it comes around once every four years.” (SI – Tim Vickery)
