South Africa World Cup

next year in South Africa FIFA hold world cup! Do you know world cup?
In 1930 world cup was held first in uruguay and every 4 year world cup
was held except breaking out some big event.

Now 26 teams advance in main round. In Europe Denmark, Switzerland, Slovakia,

In Asia Australia, Japan, South and North Korea do, In Africa South Africa,
Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire do, In North and South America USA,
Mexico, Honduras, Brazil, Paraguay, Chile, Argentina do and New Zealand advance

will be complete and are organized each main round group.On the other hands
Strong countries like Sweden and Czech were eliminated in qualification round.
And France, Portugal, Uruguay are in elimined danger.

When we watch sports we are interested in world records. World cup also have
many World records. For example Brazil recorded the most winner team (5 times)
, Pele recorded the most winning experience (3 times), Ronaldo record the mosta
goal in world cup main round (15 goals) and his record will be able to be broken by
him. It’s fun that we watch World cup to think upside writing.

2) When were World Cup held first? and Where were World Cup held first?
3) What team record the most winner team in World Cup?
4) How many goals Ronaldo make in World Cup?’
