world cup

The City of Lights still has Fútbol fever even after their big victory. Their soccer superstar has announced he is going the philanthropic route with his winnings.

France defeated Croatia to win the FIFA World Cup 2018. That’s what it says on paper, but one look at the members of the French team and it’s clear as day that it was Africa who really won. 

The World Cup 2018 tournament is currently happening in Russia and features some of the world’s best soccer players representing their countries in the wildly popular sport. Nigeria gave Iceland a 2-0 whipping on the pitch, giving itself a shot to make it to the round of 16.

With World Cup soon approaching fans are naturally stocking up on their team swag. The Nigerian squad’s merchandise is breaking sales records.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup has been one for the record books for weeks now but don’t tell that to supporters of the losing squad.

The Men’s German soccer team won the World Cup, but has only one trophy to share. As a consolation, Dr. Dre’s Beats, and supermodel Naomi Campbell, are gifting 24 carat gold dipped headphones to the German team.

Italian soccer star Mario Balotelli’s early exit from the 2014 FIFA World Cup has left him with dangerously too much free time on his hands.

Though the United States’ lost in yesterday’s World Cup match against Belgium 2-1, the score would have been more one-sided if it weren’t for a record breaking performance by goalkeeper Tim Howard.

The USA has officially been eliminated from the World Cup as of Tuesday (July 1) after Belgium beat out America 1-2 in overtime. The win means that Belgium moves forward to play Argentina this weekend, and the USA team is off getting a drink in Brazil somewhere (it’s only right).

We found it odd that Waffle House was tweeting, much less from their verified account (they can afford Internet?). But on Tuesday morning (July 1), the regional breakfast icon sent out a slew of posts urging Americans to boycott the Belgian (not Belgium) waffle in anticipation of today’s U.S.-Belgium fútbol game.

The World Cup has been dominating in the ratings and on Rihanna’s Twitter timeline, but there’s one problem with the latter. Rih Rih hasn’t  rooted for the USA in the World Cup and people are mad about it.

The Ghanaians have exceeded all expectations during the 2014 Fifa World Cup but they’ll have to continue to work magic without two of their key components.
