FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL 2014, ZOOMS INTO HISTORY.
Icheoku says FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 has come and gone and like so many other things before it and which would after it, it is now history. It was well staged and beautifully delivered. Germany won the championship while host country Brazil failed due to an abysmal performance they put up in the quarter against the eventual winner Germany in a 7-1 drubbing, the first of its kind ever recorded in a world cup championship.
Overall it was a good world cup championship that introduced to the world of soccer players named Hazard and Hulk, which names appositely fits their bearers particularly the hulking Brazilian named Hulk. World already famously existing names like Messi and Ronaldo featured prominently too, admitted they failed to live up to their billings, especially Portugal's Ronaldo that could not see his side beyond the primary rounds. The cool cucumber(ed) goaltenders are also recognized particularly Mexico's Ochoa, Nigeria's Enyema and Argentina's tender. Anyway, Brazil has moved over and on, to make way for Russia 2018, provided the ever restive Tasmanian devil in Moscow Vladimir Putin will not set the world ablaze before then. Icheoku says Russia 2018, here the world cometh; so long Brazil.
