Holaaaaa! Can you feel the demam sepak bola partout (everywhere) because of the world cup? So, are you a football lover? If yes, what’s your favourite team in this 2014 World Cup? Moi? J’aime beaucoup Allemagne (Germany)! The 2014 FIFA World Cup is taking place in Brazil (12 June-13 July 2014). 32 national teams involved in this tournament:
-AFC (Asian) 4 : Japan, South Korea, Australia, Iran
-CONCACAF 4 : United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico
-UEFA (European) 13 : Germany, Portugal, France, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, England, Greece, Switzerland
-CAF (African) 5 : Ghana, Nigeria, Algeria, Cameroon, Ivory Coast
-CONMEBOL (South American) 6 : Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador,
Each team consist of 23 players, including 3 goalkeepers. The squad of each team can be seen here. Furthermore, ke-32 tim ini dibagi ke dalam 8 grup. Detail mengenai groups and schedule of the matches dapat dilihat disini.
The official ball of the 2014 World Cup is the Brazuca (Adidas). Nowadays, the officials are being assisted by goal-line technology (baru liat bener tadi di pertandingan Australia vs Chile). Teknologi ini membantu wasit melihat bola-bola dengan posisi tanggung, sudah melewati garis gawang (goal) atau belum. Jadi jangan sampai ada yang ribut-ribut ya soal goal-ga goal hihi.
Sampai hari kedua ini, the most fascinating match is Spain vs Netherlands. Spain was beaten 5-1 by Netherlands yippieee! Good job Netherlands! Haha sorry Spain lovers, I have revenge with your favourite team, because the defeat of my favourite team (Germany) by Spain in Final Euro 2008 and Semifinal World Cup 2010. Besides, Real Madrid beats Bayern Muchen 4-0 in UEFA Champions League 2014, also Borussia Dortmund and Schalke. Sooooo sad!
2014 FIFA World Cup-Deutschland Squad. Duh kok bisa pas banget sih itu no 8 sama no 11 atas bawah. Semacam sekali mendayung, 2 pulau terlampaui :3
The last but not the least, which team will be the winner? Hopefully Germany! 😀 Then, who will be the top scorer and get the golden boot? Also the golden glove? We’ll seeeee…….
