Hello everyone and Welcome back to word on the Street! This month we are going to be talking about the World Cup!!! This sporting event is the greatest soccer event known to man! On Thursday June 14 is when it started with 24 teams and on July 15 is when it ends with only 1 left standing. The last world cup back in 2014 was a blowout by Germany over Brazil 7-1. Will history repeat itself and will Germany win or will a new team hold the trophy? Only one way to find out! Personally I think France is going to win because they have awesome young, up and coming players on their team. I mean don’t even get me started on Pogba and Mbappe but there are many others! Well that’s my prediction for the 2018 WORLD CUP!!! What’s yours?
So after talking about the World Cup this isn’t just a sporting event. It’s a cultural thing. Be proud of where you come from! I am from Germany and Jamaica. Sadly, Jamaica didn’t qualify for the world cup but Germany did and they are pretty good! Also every world cup there is an awesome song to go with it. In 2010 it was “Waka Waka” which rocks and for the 2018 World Cup their song is ”Live It Up” Which is also awesome! I hope you guys enjoy the world cup and have a great summer! Closing off for July,
