After long time, I wanted to capture the impression of thoughts in this blog post.
My thoughts linger and travel along the South American nation where samba flavored football welcomes the world to host the World Cup for the second time, with millions of supporters swarming to witness the legacy of the game.
Much awaited world cup kicks start after four years.
The Brazilians will unleash their world cup hopes with the opening day match against Croatia. Needless to mention, Brazil will go through their group stage.
I’m an all time admirer of Brazilian football. I saw my first world cup match back in 2002 when Brazilians met Germans in the 2002 final. But, Will Brazil bring the 6th world cup home?
There is no El-Phenomenon like Ronaldo, and tactical magician like Ronaldinho or most capped Brazilian Captain in Cafu, but Passion of playing in front of their home crowd.
I feel, the young Brazilian squad will surpass the expectation with the experienced Coach in Scolari, having already won the Confederations cup with the same team.
The Three Lions are expected to make an upset like last world cup but the heart stays with the young English team. The Germans training in their own stadium arrive in mighty attacking style to clinch a place in finals, whereas the defending champions La Roja (Spain) cannot be written off with their tiki-taka-ian style of play. The Uruguayans emerged as the underdogs finishing third in last world cup, will continue to threaten at Brazil this year.
The Oranje (Dutch) have seamless attacking football up front but will they qualify from their group?
Finally the nations of Ronaldo and Messi will eclipse over other nationalities and might surprise many.
Nevertheless, i’m gonna enjoy the most frenzied month.
It’s Samba time !!!
