Players of Redemptoris Mater and Collegio Pio Brasiliano teams play their Clericus Cup soccer match in Rome, Sunday, March 10, 2013. Vatican-supported soccer league matches went ahead as scheduled Sunday on a hill overlooking St. Peter's Basilica, shown in background. For the teams of seminaries, missionaries and oratories, however, the pre- and post-game talk centered on the coming conclave to elect a new pope. A coach of a Brazilian team was absent because he was chosen to drive two cardinals to Assisi for the day. "It didn't go so well today," Aldemir Fracisco Belever, the captain of the Collegio Pio Brasiliano seminary said after a 4-1 loss to Redemptoris Mater, a team featuring seminarians and priests with the Mater neocatechumenal movement. "It wasn't easy without our coach." (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino)
