Are you a soccer fan just like me? Well, if your answer is yes, then this blog is perfect for you. Only three days ago, the world's biggest sporting event started. The 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Millions of spectators have been anxiously waiting for this moment, rooting for their favorite team. Four years ago, in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, the European champions, Spain, had beaten the Netherlands in the finals, becoming the first European team to win a FIFA World Cup outside their home continent. However, let's not get ahead of ourselves. First, let's understand what the 2014 FIFA World Cup is exactly. According to Wikipedia,"The 2014 FIFA World Cup is the 20th FIFA World Cup, an international men's football tournament, that is currently taking place in Brazil. It began on 12 June, with a group stage, and is scheduled to conclude on 13 July with the final. " So as you can see, this is what a FIFA World Cup is.
In my opinion, I truly hope the Argentina wins. This is because they have great, energetic players such as the world renowned Lionel Messi or the fantastic Kun Aguero. In addition, Argentina also has a very good formation. That formation is 4-3-3. This means they have four defensive players who stay back to make sure the opponents do not get to the goal, 3 midfielders who stay in the canter of the field to give support, and 3 attackers who have to keep on taking shots until they make one in. Argentina's strong points are the four fantastic players on their team. Those four players are Di Maria, Messi, Aguero, and Higuain. These four players are so good, they are often called "Los Cuatros Fantasticos" or the Fantastic Four.
In conclusion, the FIFA World Cup is an exciting sporting event to watch, with changes every step of the way. The 2014 FIFA World Cup is the 20th FIFA World Cup, with lots of countries competing in this sporting event. With Brazil as its host, this shall indeed be a fascinating sight to see. I really hope the Argentina wins this year's FIFA World Cup. The have long had a craving to win the World Cup, and have not even made it to the semifinals since 1990. With the Fantastic Four now ready to play, this may be their year to change that,
