The World Cup


The World Cup 2018

Moe Jawish and Michael Galland

It’s that time of the year again where families get together to support their favorite international soccer team in the World Cup. Arguments ensue between the families about whose team is going to win whether it’s Portugal, Brazil, Spain or any of the other teams in the competition. Last time, Germany was the last team left to win the cup. This year’s World Cup is being held in Russia for the first time in history.

The best part about it is the excitement and the fights that happen between the families. Most families gather around their televisions to watch the big game. Others like to enjoy snacks while watching. The stadium was packed with a total amount of 52,918 fans in the 2014 World Cup. The number of fans is expected to increase in this year’s World Cup.

There are a total of 32 teams competing in the World Cup, but only one team will win. The World Cup is being held in 10 cities in Russia. The preliminary games will be held at Saint Petersburg, Ekaterinburg, Kazan, Samara, Volgograd, Nizhny Novgorod, Saransk, Rostov-on-Don, Kaliningrad and Sochi. The finals will be held in Moscow.
