The Fifa 2014 World cup is around the corner and even though we will be notable absentees in Brazil , I can’t really feel any of the rest of the worlds excitement and fever spilling over……..yet.
It’s hard to believe it was 4 years ago that we were caught up in the WC frenzy.
We certainly put our backs into it as a nation. Amid worldwide concerns over security, infrastructure & stadium – building deadlines, we staged a superb World cup regardless of freezing temperatures at times.
We dressed up and decorated everything in our national best. Singing the anthems , we were carried on a euphoric wave of vuvuzela noise for a month.
Such a pity to not be feeling that fever again! At least we have world class stadiums as a legacy.
We will have to become the ‘Rock concert’ centre of the world !
