Soccer: 'Players examples on and off field' says pope

(see related) Vatican City, August 13 - Pope Francis told the Italian and Argentine national teams Tuesday to remember that they were always setting an example, for better or worse. "With your behavior, on and off the field, in life, you set an example," the Argentine pontiff told players in an audience at the Vatican. "For many who watch you with admiration, you are a model, for better or worse," he added, inviting them to be an example of "loyalty, respect and altruism". The two teams will play a friendly in Rome Wednesday in honor of the pontiff, an avid soccer fan.
