This summer the Football World Cup will take place in Germany. Teams from Africa may play teams from South America. It is unlikely they'll talk the same language and the games may well be refereed by Asians who speak neither French nor Spanish! But, they all know the rules they are playing by. You see, wherever international football, rugby, cricket, basketball or golf (to name but a few sports) uniform rules of sport are in place.
