Sometimes, the things I post about have a strange way of intersecting. This past weekend, Bolivian president suffered a broken nose during a football match. Take note that while the BBC describes the game as "an indoor footbal match", based on the picture, it looks more like Futsal. Futsal is a small-sided (5 a side I think) variant on soccer, wholly different than indoor soccer, that is meant to played on a smaller court, equivalent of a basketball court. It can be played both indoors and out and uses a smaller, heavier ball.
The injury means he might not be able to take part in a
match next Sunday between government representatives and special guests
invited to the inauguration of the Constituent Assembly, who are
expected to include Brazilian President Lula and Venezuelan President
