Can you believe its already been two weeks? This tournament has been so enthralling that its flown faster than you can say “Fred”. This week saw the round up of the group matches. It was action packed and with a healthy share of controversy. Heres what I learnt from the Brazil 2014 so far:
Football will unite people
People I’ve never spoken football with are now ready to discuss the latest game. The world Cup hype and excitement can bring together almost anyone.
Everyone is now a football expert:
On the same vein of thought, all those now watching seem to have an opinion on everything and everyone. Some of these humble folk actually know squat about football – like, not even the offside rule, or what a back pass is. Some can’t even tell the difference between the Boateng brothers. Worse still, some are so footy naive they still believe FIFA is a trustworthy custodian of football, cos you know, for staging “such an awesome world cup” and “banning that cheat Suarez.” Sigh. Two more weeks and the fakers will go back to their knitting.
