Canine Intrudes World Cup

I was hoping to become the first canine participant at a World Cup competition. Unfortunately, I just learned that the honor is already taken. A scruffy black dog played in the England-Brazil match during the 1962 World Cup:

Well, at least I'll be the first Boxer when I play. But which team should I play for? I live in the United States, I understand Spanish and English, I'm named after an Egyptian capital and my breed is from Germany.

Dear Cairo,
Being a MAJOR soccer fan (my mommy is from Hungary,my Daddy's parents from Holland and Switzerland, plus my Daddy lived in South America for 4 years), anyway I've seen you catching frisbies, and you move like Becham, only you're cuter!!! sooooo, I think they should choose you to playXOXOXOXOXOXOXO ASTA

I don't think the scruffy dog counts. He didn't even touch the ball. You can still be the first!

That dog may have been first on the soccer field but you have the moves! I think you should play for the US as even with Beckham, they really need help!

It looks like you can still be the first to be invitedt to play. Even if you weren't really invited, you'd be quick enough to avoid getting caught like the little black dog. We bet he was pretty famous for a while!

Well thank you! I think you're really cute as well! I also like my tail, but my "mommy" thinks that I sometimes whip her to hard! She doesn't understand that I only whip her cause I'm SOO happy! ;-)
