World Cup Review
The world cup was held in Qatar and ran for 4 weeks. Qatar is the smallest country this global event has ever been held in and the cultural aspect of the cup was very different to previous hosts.
My personal opinion on the way the world cup not very positive. Qatar paid its residents to play as fans of different countries and created a false atmosphere. Spending a record amount of money on the set up for the event with billions being spent on air conditioning.
However I cannot complain on the results of the event seeing that it was Argentina and Messi who achieved a well deserved win.
Bias and Controversy
There is much bias and controversy in most major events but in Qatar it was filled with it. The Qatar team offered to pay 8 players from the Ecuador team to lose the opening match of the world cup of which they denied the offer. The refereeing of the world cup was also very controversial. Calls being made that should not have been, favouring one nation over the other it ruins the idea of nation v nation and more based on who has more money. it made the game seem less realistic and wasn’t as enjoyable.
Argentina. With Messi winning the world cup, it solidified his place on the mantle as the best football player in history. His technical and leadership ability drove his nation to the crown. Being directly involved in 10 goals in only 7 matches at the highest level truly shows how good of a player he is.
