The 2014 World Cup in Brazil
AS Roma Players
I’ve got a full eight players going to the World Cup and I’m very pleased about that. The more seasoned international we have at the club, the higher our prestige. I’ve got high hopes especially for De Rossi, Verratti, and Florenzi for my beloved Italy side this coming tournament!
Turkey shocked Brazil in Group A by beating them to first place, but the hosts at least did manage to move to the knockout stages. England, on the other hand, was not so great, and were eliminated with a record of 1-0-2. Ireland managed to win their group, somehow, at Germany’s expense. There were otherwise no shocks as we went into the knockout rounds.
I’m not sure how they did it but Belgium is your winners of the FIFA World Cup beating Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal in a dramatic final. Hosts Brazil finished third after spanking Turkey in the third place game but were disappointed not to have won it, especially after losing to huge rivals Portugal in the semifinals.
