Mexico's first match is against Brazil.
Yikes

We like Mexico. At least in food, soccer and vacations

And people, especially cooks.

Well, Mexico DID win the Olympics over Brazil so miracles will happen.

I've never know such 'apathy' in the UK for a world cup before, I think the Premier League has destroyed international football on these Isles, I was just thinking about it today, I love football but I simply cannot raise any excitement / expectation for this competition at all! I don't think Ive spoken to anybody about it here and I don't think anybody has mentioned it to me! It used to be so different even 20 years ago. I can honestly say I don't think I am even going to bother to watch any of the games (even the ones involving England), in fact most (though not all) world cup games are pretty dull from what I remember (particularly the group games), I cant believe its come to this, I despise the English FA and UEFA and I dont hold FIFA in a particularly high regard either. I suppose the fact that the English team is not exactly great at the moment must have something to do with it but I cant quite figure out what it is exactly that has made this particular football loving person feel so 'meh' about the whole thing! I am actually looking forward to the Rugby World Cup much more - FA you have a lot to answer for!

Mexico will not beat Brazil, book it. Olympics and WC are two different things. I say 3-0.

You're probably right about that, but back in the day people used to attach flags to their cars and the streets would be empty for the games involving England (or Scotland if they qualified) we would be as excited as Sophie! But now....nothing, perhaps it is because its the other side of the world? Perhaps its because nobody thinks the English team will win I don't know but whereas the World Cup is becoming more popular in 'new regions of the world' it seems to be going the other way here (though domestic football is as popular as ever), is there anybody else that senses the same thing in their country?
