Fact or Fiction
The Super Bowl is bigger than the FIFA World Cup?
The world’s largest sporting event is the international football — aka soccer — tournament, the FIFA World Cup. This year, for the first time in its eighty-year history, the tournament will take place in Africa. The games begin today in Johannesburg, South Africa, and will continue for the next month, ending on July 11. There’s an official song of the event this year. Shakira and South Africa’s Freshlyground sang “Waka Waka” yesterday in both Spanish and English at the pre-tournament kick-off concert in Soweto. EA Sports simulated the games, using a soccer engine to test all the teams under the same conditions they will play in South Africa, and predicted that Spain would beat Brazil to become the World Cup Champions.
Reason to party today – coz it’s happy hour somewhere in the world.
