Red is for winners

There's a lot of interesting soccer-related articles in the New Scientist, such as one about a mathematical study which found out that soccer is the most exciting sport, another that presents a formula for predicting the winners. Besides, scientific research says that red is the colour of the winners. Various studies have also shed light on soccer-specific injuries ("A head for balls can be a pain in the neck"). Does make sense.

Congrats to the German team for a good start! Even if they didn't wear red ....

Red ? As far as I can remember, they never wear red. In 1974 (that magic year again !) they worn green in same matches leaving the white colour to the guest team ...

BTW: The guys with the five stars on the shirt do not wear red, either.

Tja, Stevie, even science does err sometimes, fortunately.
