Billions of people across the globe gather to watch the World Cup competition. Believe you me, it doesn’t matter whether you are a football fan or not, you will not hesitate to tune in and watch this clash of the titans. Players from various football clubs get back to their home countries to express their patriotism by playing passionately in an effort to see their country become the bearers of this coveted cup for the next 4 years. So, is it the most outstanding competition in the world?
All Of The Best In One Platform
The world’s best players come together to majestically represent their country with a goal of laying hands on this famous trophy. Countries in the European continent have been known to produce the best players; consequently, most trophies either go to France, Germany, Brazil, Italy, and Argentina among others. These teams have a good historic record and fans go wild to see them move to the next stages of this very important competition.
The game goes far to reveal some of the most skillful players that would otherwise not been known. Furthermore, this is the place where great clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United get to spot some of the players they would buy in order to strengthen their already rich teams. The football legends like Pele, Maradona and Ronaldinho could not have been recognized were it not for this iconic tournament.
The historical moments in World Cup keep piling up with more tournaments now that there are new players who come to play after four years. We won’t forget how Kylian Mbappe, the France World Cup winner, celebrated ‘Ronaldo style’ after scoring against Portugal. Another memorable moment was when Maradona dribbled the ball past the English mid and defense to score a record-breaking goal for his team Argentina.
Pele on the other hand became the youngest ever player to score, at the age of 17, in a final. On top of that, he is the sole player who has won the world cup 3 times. However, players like Mbappe and Pogba are keen to break the record following their recent 4-2 win against the determined Croatia.
Taking What is Available
A nation can only take players who have its citizenship despite there being so many stars all around the world. Clubs can assemble the best players for their team but a country can never be in a position to do that. At times, players might be forced to score against their own goalkeeper only that this time it won’t be an own goal.
The Champions League?
Some may argue that the UEFA Champions League is the fiercest competition since it brings the best teams in Europe to fight for the glory. All in all, World Cup remains to be the best competition with all of its breathtaking moments and drama. It will therefore remain to be the favorite competition among fans in as much as it may not be as competitive as the UEFA Champions League.
