Has anyone been around for a World Cup before?

I've heard that the country pretty much comes to a standstill as if on a public holiday and crime rates drop at the same time

Any stories from people that have spent the World Cup in S.A before??

Oh The world cup...my first memories come from the USA 94´ world cup...i was 8 years old and sice then every world cup is something so speciall...in my country during that month its true nothing exist but football...well actually all may be hidden behind the football...speacially bad news...
I really look forward to coming the world cup...in these moments is when you remeber after many years later what you were doing while the world cup was happening!
In my case i met my gf during the last world cup!

Saludos!!!

HEHE you made me laugh...you english won only a world cup in the beatles´time in 1966 and in a very weird situation...but its ok...
hey im just kidding not trying to be rude ok?well i hope so ...to play against england and won you hehe...
the last time you won thanks to a penalty that beckham celebrated in an excessive way!!!
im glad because we won england in the important matches in 1986 and 1998...and hope see you again in this world cup.
And i will be in England on May this year so if you want to organize a football match and play again an argentinian it´s ok!!!!hehe...dont worry i wont score a goal with my hand!

regards!

We're due a World Cup win!!! However I don't think this is going to be our year, we're pretty shit these days :(

I apoligise for Beckham he's a silly man but he's out of the World Cup now anyway. Best of luck and it would be lovely to face Argentina, always a very heated match.

Where will you be in England? If you find yourself in Leeds in Yorkshire give me a shoiut I'll be happy to show you around or go for a drink and a game of football (no hand of god allowed!!)

I love World Cup and can't wait to spend it in Brazil/Argentina!!

Saludos!!

Hey thats a good idea .organize a football match without hand of god!jeje
Actually i will stay in London and then go to Liverpool and i will spend 2 weeks in England so that could be a good opportunitty to show our talent :)

I dont believe my team win the world cup either...we have great players but im not sure last world cup the ugly german team won in penalties...what a sad day!i thought we were about to play in semi final and we couldnt...
In world cups dont care about talented players but how your team is prepared that month!
Anyway hope Brasil doesnt win the world cup again...i got happy every time the lose matches hehe
that happens to you when any team lose?which?
