Football, Food & World Cup Fever at the Water Poet Pub
Social media, the internet and other sources have brought the World together with the ability to watch their country's teams playing sport at home and abroad.
The FIFA World Cup, or as it is favourably now called The World Cup, is an international football competition which is fought out on the field every four years. The current champion is Germany. The format of the competition is that a qualification phase takes place over the preceding three years to determine which teams qualify for the tournament phase. It becomes quite exciting when your Country moves up the ladder and closer to success each year with improvements and skill in their techniques.
Although the game is called football in most parts of the world, it hasn't always been the case and in America and Australia, the game is known as Soccer. According to a paper written by Professor Stefan Szymanski of the University of Michigan, the word "soccer" is a British invention, which originally comes from the term "association football" going back 200 years in British history. However, it does not matter what it is called for the enthusiasm and pride the game brings to a nation far surpasses any controversy over its name.
