World Cup Quotes


The Super Bowl of soccer, The World Cup is actually the only true football championship, since that is indeed what soccer is called in every country but the United States. World Cup quotes demonstrate that the cup is not just a championship, but a source of national pride. The best of the best are called upon to represent their country. The winner not only gets bragging rights, but elevates their nation to the world stage, making the World Cup one of the most important sporting events ever to take place, outside of perhaps the Olympics. And they manage to draw millions of spectators even without a glitzy halftime show by MTV. Imagine that! Reference.com Definition of World Cup
