5 things we learned from the World Cup so far

Published

on

These are 5 interesting take-aways from the 2018 World Cup in Russia which is gathering momentum:

1. A World Cup Of Penalties 

One of the major things discovered in this World Cup is the high number of penalties awarded in the early stage. In the first round of matches, more than 8 penalties have already been awarded.

– Cristiano Ronaldo scored a penalty against Spain.

– Antoine Griezmann scored a penalty against Australia.

– Miles Jedinak scored a penalty against France.

– Lionel Messi missed a penalty against Iceland.

– Christian Cueva missed a penalty against Denmark.

– Luka Modric scored a penalty against Nigeria.

– Andras Granqvist scored a penalty against South Korea.

– Ferjani Sassi scored a penalty against England.

– Shinji Kagawa scored a penalty against Colombia.

2 Big Guns Are Misfiring

Many of the big teams are misfiring already in the World Cup. Who would have thought Brazil would not obliterate Switzerland? Or who would have thought Argentina wouldn’t annihilate Iceland? How about Germany?!

3 Nigeria Have Everything Wrong Except Their Jersey

From wrong tactics by the coach to lethargic team performance. The play of the Super Eagles have been woeful at best and the only saving grace is the fact that they have the best jersey in the tournament. That’s some succour, right? Their play is so bad that they may be taking over the position of the whipping boys mantra from Iceland.

4 VAR Is Spot On 

There have been controversial decisions that the VAR has resolved. From deciding the right card to be given to a player if the referee misses the incident to awarding a correct penalty, the referee’s work is easier and fans are loving this. With the VAR, there are less scandals.

5 Ronaldo And Messi Have Contrasting Starts

While Ronaldo, popularly called Penaldo, has three goals in the World Cup from one match, Messi, popularly known as the GOAT even though Ronaldo’s fans are jealous of this and are trying to call Ronaldo the GOAT too, has no goals yet. While Ronaldo has converted his preferred kick, the penalty, Messi has missed. Remember, though, that the end justifies the means!

ITS NOT PUNISHMENT BY GOVERNMENT
PROTECT YOURSELF.
Wear one

God bless their efforts”, she tweeted.

Reacting to this, Adesua expressed her displeasure over the photo and she tackled the presidential aide.

The actress wrote;

“You are a disgrace. Both home & abroad. You should be ashamed that these children have to do this with cardboards. Instead of talking about how to tackle poverty so they can be protected adequately against the virus, you’re spewing this nonsense.

Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa has clamped down on former presidential aide, Reno Omokri following his remark about ‘divorced women.’

The former presidential aide had shared a tweet where he urged the media to project ‘natural beauties’ like the late Nigerian first lady, Mayram Babangida as role models for youths, instead of bombarding them with photos of ‘bleached and divorced women with surgical enhanced bodies.’

Irked by the tweet, Makinwa, who is a divorcee, rebuked Omokri and she labeled him as an ‘embarrassment.’

In her words;

“Wow, at your age? Your wife and kids must be cringing for you, such an embarrassment. “Divorced” is nothing to shame anyone for, life happens. People like you are the reasons why a lot of people stay in unhealthy situations and lose their dignity and In some cases their lives.

“You can celebrate a version of beauty without putting another down, you don’t have to meddle in women’s business too. If you have a daughter I hope she gets the courage to never deal with a man as uncouth as you, stop with the misogyny.

“I don’t care about shots intended my way, what I do care about is the group of women you singlehandedly insulted with your “Divorcee” comment, to divorce is not a crime, every divorced person has survived something and sometimes getting a divorce is the only option they have 

“Enough with the divorce shaming of Anyone, I don’t see a divorced man being shamed for living his life after his failed marriage, people like that clown are probably in unhealthy marriages too. God forbid I marry a man who tweets that kind of garbage, sighhh.

“Everyone has a divorced person that they know, it can happen to anyone, that we divorced and alive should be encouraged, people are dying each day living in unhealthy situations and while I’m not advocating for divorce, if leaving is what you need to do, do it in peace.

“You cannot survive a bad marriage, survive a mental breakdown and then now have to deal with judgement from people who have not walked a mile in your shoes, it should not be encouraged. Someone’s journey does not have to be your cup of tea, that’s ok but you must respect it.

“Dragging my divorced slay queen naked ass back to my holiday and waking up to the most beautiful view. In my bed and outside my room. Love and light xx” Toke tweeted
