"A little less conversation, a little more action, please"

They all retired :'( A little less conversation, a little more action, please

When I hear that first line of the Elvis' song, my mind cannot escape from the memory of one of the greatest ever football adv ever produced. You know what I'm talking about, the Nike Scorpion Cage from 2002 Secret Tournament campaign by Nike, where Eric Cantona was directing a stunning 3 vs 3 torunament of 24 Nike's players. Now, with Tomáš Rosický's retirement from professional football this week marks the end of an era for that Nike generation: they are officially all retired. 

To make you feel even more sad and nostalgic here's a list of the 24 Nike legends: Henry, Totti, Nakata, Vieira, Van Nistelrooy, Scholes, Ljungberg, Saviola, L.Enrique, Davids, Thuram, Wiltord, Figo, R.Carlos, Ronaldo, Denilson, Ronaldinho, Seol, Cannavaro, Rosicky, Ferdinand, Lopez, Mendieta, Crespo.
