The store's Newsletter: February 2022

For February, Cupidon was in charge of the new collection

For this shortest month of the year and placed under the sign of love for our loved one, we have decided not to do things by halves . Here is our proof of love towards you, beloved readers, with this new collection of 4 prints ( including one that you were able to choose on the store's Instagram account , on which you should not hesitate to join us emergency ) football selected by the editorial staff.

End of self-promotion and time for the revelation. Headlined by the chosen draw, Pelé in the legendary 1970 final . We also find the communion of Barça players after Lionel Messi's headed goal during the Champions League final in 2009 . Also discover the joy of Radamel Falcao , celebrating his goal during one of the most beautiful matches in European history for AS Monaco . And finally, a declaration of love in itself: La Bombonera de Boca Juniors.

This selection can of course be found now on our !

If football were all about love, the World Cup finals would be Valentine's Day. And the most romantic of them would certainly be that of Mexico 70 with a sexy Brazil – Italy marked by “King Pelé”, whose last World Cup was then. And what a World Cup! Between the goal he scored but which Gordon Banks saved, the feint he invented without touching the ball against Uruguay and the midfielder's almost goal against Czechoslovakia, the Brazilian genius has already had a feast even before the outcome. But he still kept the proof under his sole: a crazy release to open the score despite the physical harshness of the Italian defense, a second jump to offer the third goal to Jairzinho and above all a last pass for Carlos Alberto who would return without flavor any declaration of love. Summarized in this shot of him celebrating Gerson's second goal with a beautiful left shot from outside the area.

When you have Henry, Xavi, Iniesta, Busquets, Yaya Touré hugging you like that, you must be special. Lionel Messi is not like us, and he demonstrated it once again in Rome during this 2009 Champions League final against Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United . And despite the presence of the 2008 Golden Ball, Cristiano Ronaldo, nothing can stop Pep's perfect oiled machine. After Samuel Eto'o opened the score in the first period, the moment of grace came in the 70th minute. A love of center from Xavi, a love of relaxation between Vidic and Ferdinand, a silky header from the height of his meter 69, and it makes 2-0 for the Blaugranas . Little heart on Messi's shoe which sticks out on his recovery, which he picks up and kisses to celebrate his goal.

The month of February also announces the return of the holy Champions League , and to celebrate that (also), here is the snapshot of one of the biggest matches of a French club. For its round of 16 first leg of the 2016/17 Champions League , AS Monaco travels to the pitch of Manchester City and its new coach since the start of the season, a certain Pep Guardiola. These two teams will offer us an offensive festival with 8 goals, including a double from Colombian striker Radamel Falcao . Following his superb diving header in the first half to equalize (1-1), he rewards us with this jump in the sky at the Etihad Stadium and revives the Monegasques in this match which will get carried away (5-3) . Despite the defeat, the ASM performance remains the reference memory of this crazy team.

If you want to test your partner for February 14, ask them the match and the stadium they want to see one day with their own eyes. If he answers the Super Clasico to the Bombonera , look no further, you are undoubtedly holding in front of you the chosen one of your heart. For this month of love, we had to end with the best in terms of passion, romance, madness in football (with the good but also the bad sides). And even in the event of a negative answer, just the sight of this photo of the popular stand of the stadium one evening in April 98, for a derby against River Plate , should be enough to convince him/her.

Hope you find your happiness ! And whether that’s the case or not, don’t hesitate to follow us directly on Instagram where we highlight as often as possible the beautiful photos from the immense collection of our partner: the Icon Sport photographic agency .
