I saw some clips of this on TV tonight and was appalled and amuse in equal measure. What is shocking that FIFA have blocked the video due to "copyright". That organisaton has too much power.
They block all videos they find on the internet that were filmed with their cameras. You'll find tons of highlights packages from World Cup matches that FIFA has removed as soon as they were discovered. The footage belongs to them, they own it like Disney owns Mickey Mouse.
You'll find hours and hours of copyrighted stuff on Youtube, it's only still up there because I think it's up to the owner to come forward and complain. TV networks watch Youtube like a bunch of hawks.
