Lahm, Bale, Rooney in Christmas truce video

Wayne Rooney, Philipp Lahm, Hugo Lloris, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Gareth Bale tell the story of the 1914 Christmas truce in the words of the men on the front line in a powerful UEFA film.

The four-minute clip, scripted by Warhorse author Michael Morpurgo, brings to life the extraordinary events in Flanders 100 years ago, when, on a cold December evening, soldiers on both sides of the battle lines lowered their arms, started singing Christmas carols and – significantly – played football together. The words of ordinary soldiers' letters home about the extraordinary moment of togetherness are read out by current football stars Rooney, Lahm, Lloris, Schweinsteiger and Bale, with further contributions from Sir Bobby Charlton, France coach Didier Deschamps, former German international Paul Breitner and UEFA President Michel Platini.

it's here

dear uefa - this would probably be more powerful if you weren't part of a larger group actively facilitating the death of several hundred people so you can take kickback money for the wc js</a>
