New Soccer Fan at Screenflex
The world cup of soccer started. I know virtually nothing about soccer or any of the teams. We picked names at work so we each have a different team to cheer for. The FIFA World Cup is a global event, so qualification is required to reduce the large field of participants from about 200 to 32 teams. The World Cup’s qualification has evolved, from having no qualification at all in 1930, when the tournament was invitational and only 13 teams entered, to the current two-year process.
I did a little research on my team, New Zealand. Not the best team. But I am not the best fan either, so we are a good match. I will still cheer for them. They do not play until Tuesday. My understanding is that each group, plays all the teams in the same group.The hosts of the World Cup receive an automatic berth in the finals. The highest score wins the group. Can anyone else shed any light on how this tornament works?
I thought my team would be out after the first round. New Zealand made it through the second round. The next team we play is on the 24th. Go New Zealand! I will be cheering for you!
