ust when the rolling tide was black and white, when it was Juventus’s players imploring their fans to raise the volume, as if they even needed asking, when the nerves were Barcelona’s and the tension was rising, just moments after Leo Messi... There was space now, for almost the first time, and off Messi went, heading at the defence. Sprinting in behind Patrice Evra, the Uruguayan got to the ball first and sent it back into the net. He kept running, leaping over the advertising board before sprinting across the vast space behind the goal separating the goal he had scored in and the fans celebrating it, and over the gigantic Barcelona shield on the floor, arms wide. He kissed his fingers, that familiar celebration, and reached the running track by the delirious fans. Messi had made it, Suárez had scored it: the 121st goal scored by Messi, Neymar or Suárez this season, the most effective attacking trio in Spanish football history, and the goal that would give Barcelona their fifth European Cup. The league and Copa del Rey winners now added the European Cup to complete a treble. “perfection”, as Gerard Piqué had put it. As the clock ticked down, they made sure. Neymar made it 122 goals for the “MSN” with the very last kick of the game. For any player it would be, of course, but for him perhaps more so. A season that started with him unable to play, banned for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup, a pariah who was booted out of that tournament and unable to join Uruguay in...
European Union heads are waiting for Greece's anti-austerity government to present new economic reform and budget proposals, and Greek Minister of State Alekos Flambouraris said Saturday Athens would propose re-worked measures. But the country's finance chief Yanis Varoufakis, whose flamboyant style has irked many of his European counterparts, turned the tables by putting the onus on the leader of paymaster Germany to make a deal. Merkel can "enter into an honourable agreement with a government, which has rejected the 'rescue package' and is seeking a negotiated solution, or follow the calls from (those in) her government who want her to throw overboard the only Greek... But the leftist Greek government insists it will present compromises that should bring Athens and its creditors -- European Commission, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank -- closer to agreement on freeing up 7. 2 billion euros... "We are going to present measures that bridge the gap," Flambouraris was quoted as saying by Greek media, while also predicting Greece's creditors won't be satisfied with the gestures.
Wes Anderson, best known for films including The Life Aquatic and The Grand Budapest Hotel, was invited by Prada to create the main dining space inside its new arts centre, which occupies a converted distillery in Largo Isarco, southern Milan. Named Bar Luce, the space takes references from famous Milanese landmarks and cafes dotted around the city, particularly those dating back to the 1950s and 60s. These influences are visible in various details, colours and finishes – from the... "It is for real life, and ought to have numerous good spots for eating, drinking, talking, reading, etc," said Anderson. "While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. "I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in. ". The space already featured a vaulted ceiling, which Anderson chose to highlight using patterned wallpaper. The commission is the latest of several collaborations between Anderson and Prada, which include a series of movies for the launch of the fashion houses's Candy L'Eau perfume, as well as the short film Castello Cavalcanti.
