Here's a quick translation:

THE WORLD CUP CHAMPION OF KICK OFF IS GREEK

In April 2001, we wrote about the Greek participation in the making of the new Kick Off game.Here are the big news that confirm what we wrote then, that Greek gamers sweep everything: The Kick Off World Cup winner is Greek, Alkis Polyrakis!
A few days ago, we received an e-mail:

[Snipped my e-mail about KOA, the tournament etc., you've heard it before]

So Alkis came by the magazine, we talked and we wished him good luck in Dartford. So today we got another e-mail from our friend:

"Dear Mr Kratsas, I gladly inform you that I came back from Dartford with the trophy in my bag! I'm now a world champion, which means that next year the tournament will be held in Greece. I have plenty of pictures to give to you, how would you like them? (film,printed or electronic form).I also brought a version of Kick Off 02 for you to preview (the cover disk version is not ready yet)."

So a Greek gamer succeeds in not only participating in a game's official World Cup, he also wins the trophy! We have to say a big bravo to Alkis, we'll wait for his pictures so we can do a long report on the event. And,of course, we will notify you of all the Kick Off 02 news, which, who knows, may be the first game to break the FIFA's monopoly in the PCs after many years.
