Not quite FIFA, but Kerala has its own Kakas and Messis

In this small village near Keralas famous Guruvayur temple, flags of different countries contrive a makeshift canopy high above the main road.

As they flutter in the breeze amid the coconut trees, its clear that an event you may have heard of in South Africa is making news here.

The people of Orumanayur arent content to just watch matches on television. In this parallel football universe, its an Argentina versus Brazil match thats underway. Nevermind that everyone on the Brazil team is Kaka with a Number 10 jersey.
