The best part of the FIFA World Cup is that regardless of people's general interest in football, everyone shows up for the WC, especially in Bangladesh. Even though football barely gets any priority in the country compared to cricket, nothing can stop our love for the game. Every World Cup, friendships are broken, alliances are made and once the referee blows the final whistle in the final game, peace talks start. Although we may complain about all the seasonal armchair analysts that pop up every year, but it goes to show how much people care about football during this time. What other game can give us this amazing an experience?
