In the semi-final soccer match today,
humiliated the number one seed and the host country, . The score 7 to 1. Their Government, probably
will go to the “Final”, invited leaders from many countries to watch the
finals. Now that Brazil will not
be in the finals, what the Brazilian Government may do? Brazil
Cancel the invitations? Or
Cancel the final itself?
There have been incidents in the past where the organizers have cancelled the finals. Here is one I came to know off.
In the 1960s and 1970s, there was a school in
It is for teaching the American kids living in American School .
They used to have a basket ball tournament every year. It was called Lincoln Memorial Basketball
A few local school teams and many men’s team would participate. Indian men’s average height was around 5’8”. American school kids average height was around 6’2”. American school kids would win the tournament every year. They will keep the trophy to themselves.
One year, by luck (or unlucky for American kids)
was defeated by a local team in the semi-finals and
did not go to the finals. Do you know
what the American School administration
They cancelled the finals. Gave no reasons. And, they cancelled the tournament also from the subsequent year.
Don’t worry. The World Cup Final will not be cancelled. It is not organized by the Brazilian Government. It is organized by the FIFA (International Federation of Association Football).
