Since I started watching football, I've only enjoyed 2 WCs, 2002 and 2006. 2002 was when I first fell in love with Vieri = Inter, seeing Ronaldo absolutely killing everyone in that WC was something else.

2006 was very exciting for Italy fans but for me personally it was because Materazzi was a key role due to the fact that Nesta got injured, that header over Vieira was something else. That defense was so good that the only way Italy got conceded was from own goal and penalty. Heck, I even celebrated del piero's goal.

After that I haven't been excited about WC and I don't think it's gonna change now.

A few great Brazilians in 2002?

The thing I like in this WC is that hosts do not tolerate any alcohol consuming.

Not true. They just don't want the plebs to have any. You can have as much as you want in the corporate box if you are a celeb or rich.

This world cup sucks ass. The stench of corruption and stigma surrounding it sucks, paid fans (partly actors) suck, still having loads of empty seats sucks, the atmosphere sucks as a result; not even having the freedom to wear some 'one love' band or whatever the shit it was because someone might end up in jail majorly reeks of shady ass ('END RACISM' is marketed as a big deal with FIFA but I suppose 'END DISCRIMINATION' isn't quite as big of an issue), the location sucks both because of this and because it means the WC has to be played at the worst time of year - the Winter fucking sucks. This world cup just sucks! It's the first one no one wants to win.

it's slightly biased and premature hypothesis i think, but i see any team with mixed skin color players (Darker skin main, mostly they are strong and have massive stamina) and any team which has same characteristics like qatar land geographically, maybe has a chance here to win this world cup, based from first-half week of the world cup.

I get what you're saying here, and to a certain degree it makes sense, however you have to think about the sheer difference in quality between teams from the Middle East/Asia/North Africa and Europe/South America. Being more comfortable to a geographical location means nothing, look at SA players in Europe.
