8 Ways Malaysia Made It To The World Cup (Well, Sort Of)

By Matt Ho from cilisos.my

10 points for you if you managed to spot the Malaysian flag at the WC14 in Brazil. The words “Malaysia” and “World Cup” are rarely mentioned together in a sentence unless of course you live in a parallel universe where Malaysia hosted the 2014 World Cup. Believe it or not, our lil nation have played a tiny role in some of the WCs since the 90s’ (actually according to my grandpa it goes back much further but we couldn’t find substantial info cause it was during the B.C. ages… Before Candy Crush).

A soulless and pathetic display by the hosts of this year’s World Cup. The lacklustre performance was nothing but a shame. The hosts were humiliated by Germany in the semi-final, with a 7-1 riot.

My Thoughts on the FIFA World Cup 2014

By Victor Kang

Lionel Messi

Vamos, vamos Argentina!

Favourites and Dark Horses

A quick glimpse at all the 32 teams and what I can conjecture is this: due to various circumstances such as the climate, support and squad strength, this tournament will favour the host, Brazil and the rest of the South American teams. Despite what is happening in Brazil – the incomplete stadiums and protests, Brazil will be favourites to win this tournament. Strangely, the current Brazilian squad is quite the opposite of the previous Brazilian teams that we come to love and know about – their street footballing style which is full of flair, impeccable skills and attacking line-ups.
