What an exciting start to the World Cup! Not only have the fans from all over the world been cheering their hearts out, but also the Brazilian fans have been great hosts.
With all teams debuting this past few days in this edition of the tournament there’s definitely a lot to talk about! Of course, the surprises: defending champions Spain went down 5-1 against The Netherlands and must win their next match against Chile; and two-time World Cup winner Uruguay lost their initial match 3-1 against Costa Rica, having a very complicated road ahead.
There has also been some tough matches: Italy beat England in a clash of titans and Germany, France, and Colombia crushed their opponents. As for the four-time FIFA Player of the Year Award recipient Lionel Messi, his team, two-time World Cup winner Argentina showed why they are one of the favorites, but only in the 2nd half of the match against Bosnia.
This coming week will be a very exciting one for the World Cup, so check out what’s coming up! Will Uruguay and Spain stay alive? Will the Netherlands continue their masterful play?
After these games are over, we’ll have the final matches of the Group Stage where teams will play simultaneously if they are in the same group, but more on that in the next blog post. In the mean time, enjoy the World Cup soccer at Streema!
