I feel the opposite. The novice football fan I am, I was following the lesser teams in the group stages. Some have made it to the Quarters, and one made it to the semis.

I get it that diehard football fans are dejected that the major teams/favorites (barring France?) are not gonna lift the cup.

This world cup has made me wanna follow soccer more now. Prior to this WC, my interest in soccer was minimal.

I look forward to more after the WC is over

The prospect of more teams in the next worldcup even guarantee more following among the once-newbie-football like myself.


Is this football's version of T20 cricket?
