The Thick of It.
When EA Sports first said “It’s in the game” in 1993, I doubt even they were expecting something quite this extreme. Apparently, we’ve grown tired of watching football from the bird’s eye view that television cameras currently offer us – we want something entirely more intimate. During a pre-season friendly between AC Milan and 1 F.C. Köln, the players had mics and body cameras attached to their shirts, offering a never-before-seen view of what actually happens on the pitch. And by ‘never-before-seen’, I mean seen loads of times, but just a bit closer. In fairness, the footage is quite something. It certainly helped that Olivier Giroud added to his ever-expanding panoply of unbelievable goals. That man’s grandkids will think he was the greatest player ever if they watch his YouTube highlights. Obviously, this is just a trial – but so was VAR at one point, and look at that now.
