World Cup Fever Fun & some Biting


The World Cup 2014 in Brazil is providing us with loads of fun facts and pictures. Have youWorld Cup Fever Fun & some Biting - Some street art too got any favourites? I guess the most memorable facts tend to be those that are attached to feelings, possibly more those related to a positive feeling, eg, they happen when people are enjoying themselves. We all like commenting on them, even if we may not like football, which is key to the popularity of the World Cup as an event in London and elsewhere and all that is involved.

I have compiled below some fun pictures which have been published in social media or online publications, and which have been shared and commented on so far. Enjoy!

Do you like the logo? Some people seem to have seen it somewhere else…

Some people can take it too seriously.

It’s all about winning, but having a good time also helps. African players always bring the party in and the fans help to keep the ambience.

Having said all that, fans can also try and show their disappointment. Like this British fan after their team got eliminated during the first round. Check the wording – we love advertising, don’t we?

Weird things can also occur. The most commented on so far is Luis Suárez biting another player. Both brands and fans were quick enough to take advantage of the situation.

Mexico vs Brazil. Everyone thought the host team was going to score a few goals and win comfortably. After the match, the Mexican keeper’s cache must’ve gone through the roof, though, as Brazil didn’t manage to score any!

I wanted to make the point here that not all is fun. Brazil is still a country where a huge amount of the population do not have access to education nor proper housing.
