Just four days into the much anticipated 2018 Fifa World Cup tournament, it is fair to say that the fever is real and it is escalating by every match that passes.
As the world marks international father’s day, we take a look at the popular teams which most of them (aged over half a century) will be rallying behind.
Brazil is one of the most popular teams in the 2018 world ccup tournament, which is staged in Russia.
This is because the Selecao (team’s nickname) are the only team to have taken part in every single World Cup since 1930, with this year’s event becoming their 21st appearance in as many tournaments.
Hence why many dads would support them since they have been following the yellow blues for as long as they can remember and they know the danger they pose, given that they are regarded as one of the favorites to win the 2018 world cup.
Brazil are also the most successful team in the world with 5 World Cup trophies.
Speaking of successful teams, Germany is the second most successful nation with four golden trophies and this puts them as one of the most supported teams by Kenyan dads.
Having won the trophy in; 2014, 1990, 1974 and 1954, it is easy to tell that they would rather support a team which they saw tearing others apart than risk with newbies.
Having won the world cup in 1978 and 1986, Kenyan dads know very well that Diego Maradona won’t be there to do his thing for the current generation, but they know that he has already inspired the likes of Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain to better their results from 2014 where they lost in the finals against Germany.
Uruguay might be one of the most hated national teams by Kenyans and Africans as a whole after Luis Suarez’s dirty tricks stopped Ghana from becoming the first African team to make into World Cup semi finals in 2010.
With the wound yet to heal, it’s safe to say they still have attracted a number of Kenyan dads thanks to their array of talent in; Luis Suarez, Diego Godin and Edison Cavani who are proven winners.
The three lions might have won the tournament just once in 1966, but many dads are behind the men whom they follow in the English premier league every weekend.
Well which team is your dad supporting?
