Hi you all Ajax fans!
I thought you'd like to know that our dear Jari Litmanen seems to have left injuries behind for a change.
As a captain of the Finnish National team he scored twice in the first qualifying game against Poland (Finland won 3-1)
He also gave the crucial serve to Finland's goal in the second game against Portugal, which ended 1-1
After the game against Portugal the portugese press wrote
"Litmanen o maestro"
He also had a great spring in Sweden before the WC break, he played four games in a row, scored twice and gave 3 assists.
Swedish tabloids wrote after the game against Djurgården:
"The difference between these teams was Jari Litmanen"
It's great to see how Jari is still able to play great football. He's of course much slower than back in 95 for example, but he gives great passes with just one touch, and always gives the ball to a player who has time and possibility to play forward.
And we should keep in mind:
As long as soccer is played with just one ball, Jari Litmanen is very little in a hurry.
