As Argentina and Germany prepare to play the final of the world’s greatest game in front of a 78,838 capacity crowd at the iconic Estádio Jornalista Mário Filho, commonly known as “the Maracanã the first qualifying match for this tournament was played way back in June 2011.
The first match on the road to Brazil was Belize against Montserrat and with just 150 hardy souls in attendance saw the home side came out victorious 5-2.
819 qualifying games later and the thirty two for Brazil were sorted out.
From a personal point of view I have thoroughly enjoyed WC14 and apart from the crazy TV feed from the Brazilians I can’t really criticize much.
The information available nowadays thanks in the main to the internet equals a brain cell overload and you do really have to choose between the wheat & the chaff to distinguish what is worth reading and what is just tabloid/talk s**te tittle tattle.
The good thing about the web is it makes the main stream media to “up their game” in a vain attempt to keep up on an even keel.
