Self-inflating Football to Boost your Game

Whenever your football goes a bit flat, your game suffers because you can never find the football pump. Now scientists in the US have invented the world's first soccer ball with a self-contained pump. Using computers to analyse the dynamics of a football in play, scientists worked out the best shape and construction materials for the pump. It's taken nearly a year but its makers are confident that their football is now indistinguishable from other balls in professional use.This new football has received approval from FIFA and should be in the shops by June 2002.
