FIFA World Cup 2014 is underway and not without controversy. The first game featuring Brazil and Croatia was marred by a poor call resulting in a penalty being called on Croatia. Neymar converted the penalty kick and the feel of the match was then changed. Brazil went on to win the match 3-1 to open the event.
On day two, Mexico, Netherlands and Chile came out winners. Oribe Peralta scored the only goal in the Mexico win to seal the 1-0 victory over Cameroon.
All the stars are playing which will make the entire 2014 World Cup worth following and watching closely. Lionel Messi, Cristiano Rinaldo, Mario Balotelli, and Neymar are ready to lead their respective teams to World Cup glory.
Who’s going to come out on top? Will it be Brazil the host team? Can Italy reach the top like they did in 2006? Argentina, Japan, South Korea, USA, England… Who’s it going to be?
The World Cup always has rabid fans cheering for their country’s team. Clamoring for 2014 World Cup autographs and some piece of World Cup memorabilia is always high on their list of mementos they would like to have to show their support.
The next two and a half weeks is going to be a wild ride as it always is. Have fun with it.
