"In any language, the whole world is united by a ball." --- Steve Amoia

My name is Steve Amoia. I have been the publisher and editor of World Football Commentaries since November 2006. This project is my small contribution to a sport that I have followed and studied since childhood.

I am a freelance writer and translator based in Washington, D.C. My past and present focal areas have been on career-related themes, Chinese martial/healing arts and international soccer journalism, respectively. I also have a significant book review portfolio in various genres.

World Football Commentaries Background and Focus

I began this site 
in November 2006 as an extension of my World Football and Italian Calcio and History of the Azzurri projects. My goal is to provide you with unbiased journalism and unique content with a focus on topics that are rarely covered in English-speaking media.

The following topics have been my focal areas at this site since its inception:

  • Book reviews from titles published in English, Italian and Spanish with an emphasis on biographies and coaching education.
  • Commentaries on unique themes.
  • Articles about the UEFA Champions League, La Liga, Italian Serie A, Barclays Premier League, Major League Soccer, US Soccer, the Azzurri, and South American football, respectively.
  • Live scores, European league fixtures and daily global highlight video links.
  • Italian and Spanish to English translations of player and manager quotes/commentaries/reviews.
  • Interviews.
Contributing Writers 
  • Readers from 189 countries have visited this site.
