It is presumptuous to believe everyone is aware of the ongoing Soccer tournament dubbed 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP in Brazil.
For those catching up the tournament is in its closing stages and from Friday we witness the quarter finals. A lot of planning goes on behind the scenes to make a tournament of this magnitude. But all in all we have witnessed heart wrenching matches, high octane morale, squalid cheering and somewhat clownish gear in the name of being fans. We have seen tears as many sat and stood on edge at the chances and misses. The shouts of jubilation, psyche, disgust and the heavy burden of watching “our” teams lose.
The participants have been more than entertaining. They played their all – many had their bad days and those that stole the moment did shine.
So as we enter into the quarters, we start nominating stars in their own right:
- Best Midfielder (and other positions)
- Best Referee (and other admin persons)
- Best Coach (and other technical persons)
of interest to me would be:
- Best Surprise Face at Misses
- Best Scoring Face Made
- Best Foul Searcher (could it be Robben?)
- Worst Experience ( could it be England, Italy or Portugal?)
- among other nominations.
Such tournaments produces latter heroes. Those that play well all through, those that have been scouted and will get deals that will turn around their careers, those that lost but go back and work harder to prepare for the next tournament and those that learn from Brazil 2014 and plan for their countries next bid. Then we have the merry makers, all out for fun whichever way the tournament turns. Many prayers have been made and more petitions, intercessions and supplications will be made for the remaining teams. This will be done to the spirits, gods, underworld, air,Budhaa, ALLAH, Yahweh and Jesus Christ. as many hearts are yet to be broken, tears rolled and aches in the most inner places experienced I wish all peace!
