Official match ball of the UEFA European Championship 2008 (FIFA Approved).  Adidas claims that the panel shape eliminates surface irregularities and makes for a perfectly round ball.  The valve is counter-weighted to provide better flight.  The cover is made of thermally-bonded polyurethane leather and the inner bladder is latex.  The winter model is known as "Power Orange" for obvious reasons.  The Euro Final match ball is referred to as the "Vienna", and features the Euro Cup trophy and chrome colouring.

Yes it's tougher for the keepers, but it is also more challenging for the shooters to hit the target. "Turbulent movement" can easily take a ball into 'row X'. So yeah, keepers do need to 'get over it' as Erik says. But i still think the "Adidas Tango Pasadena" is the best ball of all time. It's a man's ball! Good healthy weight to it. Pumped hard and hit well, it can fly like a torpedo, punishing anything in its path :)

As with every new ball introduced in International tournaments, goalkeepers will complain. This ball is already getting complaints that it flys like a beachball with a lot of turbulent movement. I say get over it. It's progress.

I was checking this ball out in a local soccer shop, and was surprised to find that there is a slight snakeskin texture over the surface of the ball. In my brief handling of the ball I could tell the "grip" is amazing. Will be interesting to try this on the field to see if the textured finish actually enhances ball control.
