Brazil or Argentina, Spain or Germany, family or football? All of these are tough decisions to make when the world cup season is right around the corner and football starts to run in our veins. However, we all MUST pick a side and stick to it!
This already intense season goes up a few notches when the whole family ends up supporting different teams. It all starts out being friendly until the first foul and all the friendship goes down the drain. After a whole bunch of trash talking and insults, one person is knocked down from the pedestal, and gets laughed at until they leave the room with a sulking face.
Arfa, for example, is not someone who is all that into football or any sport for that matter, but when it comes to Brazil and Argentina, she just has to support Argentina. The reason behind this is very simple, her father is a very big fan of Brazil and she cannot help but compete with her father. Just to spite her father she chooses to buy the Argentine flag, their jersey and the national team's poster before every world cup.
Every Argentina vs Brazil match in their household is entertaining to the max. They both enjoy this banter, even though the loser has to hear about the loss for at least a whole week before the other lets it die. This father daughter duo is at it again this world cup as they are back to their playful way of bonding through their competitive spirit.
The four long years of wait is at an end and this June will be exciting for all. No matter who ends up lifting the cup, everyone watching will have a great time with family or friends.
