Watching the World Cup: A sideline perspective 

0

The World Cup is here at last, but for some, 2018 is completely a new experience. The USMT and their personnel, will have to watch from home for the first time since 1986.

FIFA has a different look and feel to it; top tier Italy, USA failing to qualify for the first time in years, and new faces like Peru, Tunisia surprising the rest of the world with their arrival.

Peru has been one of the most exciting headlines in 2018, qualifying for the first time in decades. They have been playing well against tough teams like Denmark, France, and now they have played one of their better games in a 2-0 shutout against Australia.

Tunisia has been another interesting World Cup story, but not as fulfilling as others, for they are on the brink of elimination after their last two losses. They however began with the hysteria of qualifying and the notion that they belong, with close matchups against some of the best in the world.

Let’s see if Tunisia can bounce back against Panama on Thursday.

The Round of 16 certainly features tons of parody; there is also countries like Morocco, Iran that are leveling with heavy-weights like Spain, Portugal. The possibility of more stunning upsets make this year an exciting
one, and especially with the likelihood for fan favorite teams to advance, like Mexico or Argentina.

If you are a faithful USMT soccer fan, but want a team to root for, who would it be? Not Mexico right…just kidding. 

My team I’m rooting for right now is Argentina, for a few reasons, mainly to see one of the greatest players in the world have a chance to win the World Cup. It is always a spectacle to see the great Lionel Messi play, as well as his respectable personal.

No matter where you are, and whoever you root for, always is what makes this ceremony so unique. Go root for your country, or your other your favorite team.
