FIFA Wold Cup 2014: More tit bits at a glance

fifa cupBosnia Herzegovina – Former Yugoslavian outfit Bosnia and Herzegovina will be making their debut in this edition of the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The ‘dragons’ as they are dearly called have never qualified for the major soccer tournament after being declared as an independent nation and will look to make the most of their very first opportunity.

The nation boasts of the services of title winning Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko. The City striker has been in phenomenal form for his club and will look to lead the charge of the Dragons in Brazil. They are placed in Group F along with Nigeria, Iran and South American giants Argentina Protests – Brazil has been the soccer capital of the world.

Filled with football enthusiasts of all ages, the South American nation lives and breathes the beautiful game. So naturally, when Brazil was offered to host the spectacle, they gladly agreed to do so. But, this decision came at a price. 15% of Brazil’s population lives below the poverty line and the citizens wanted the nation to focus on their welfare rather than splurge the big bucks on the mega tournament. The build up to the tournament has been marred by constant protests by fans ridiculing the government for turning a deaf ear to their necessities.

Fears of clashes between the authorities and the people seem to be on the cards and one can only hopes for the best.

Goals – 2208 is the total number of goals that has been scored in the last 19 editions of the footballing spectacle. The last tournament in South Africa featured 145 goals with an average of just over 2 goals a game. One can only expect a lot more goals from this year’s World Cup with stars like Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar, Rooney and Villa all in their prime.

Meet Nelly- Move over Paul ‘the octopus’. There is a new wizard in town who is most likely to predict all those game results with deft accuracy. Yes ladies and gentlemen, meet Nelly the elephant.

Nelly has predicted the result of tournaments like the champions league and the women’s world cup to utmost perfection and he will be the ‘pundit’ that all the bookies will have an eye on.
