The World Cup has officially kicked off, with Germany defeating Costa Rica 4-2. I managed to catch the last twenty minutes of the game and saw two magnificent goals (one for each team). Apparently they play with a ball which has no seams, and keepers hate it. It makes it easier on the field players though, and may perhaps result in more goals for our viewing pleasure.
Some may wonder who’s going to win the cup this year. I happen to have it from a reliable source that none other than England is going to come out on top, defeating Brazil 2-1 in the final. The USA will do well – they’ll make it as far as the round of sixteen – but that’s all. Now all I have to do is sit back and wait to be right.
