Profiling two soccer players today...
Lilian Thuram was born on January 1st,1972 in Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe and With the French national team, Thuram helped win the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000. He is currently considered one of the best defenders in the world. He plays for Juventus FC(Milan,Italy) and is also known for being a vivid activist in matters of race relations as he's been time and again subjected to racial slurs from some european fans.
He's about 5'10 and weighs around 160 lbs. I wish I had a sexy creole word for him but I'll just go with " très chaud "!
Like his teamate Thuram (Juventus FC), Fabio Canavarro is an excellent Italian player. Although not very tall for a central defender, Fabio is so good that he's the 2006 captain of Italy. Born on September 13, 1973 in Naples, Fabio stands 5'9 tall and only weighs 165 lbs. So much for this bel ragazzo.
