I'm not an avid footballer watcher but when there is a World Cup I do make it a point to catch up on most of the action. However, I do follow a bit of club football, especially Spanish League. It is a tough sport and what I like about it is that it is a 90-minute game. On top of that, it is also great to watch the same league footballers giving their best for their respective countries.
My brother is a big fan of football and because of him, I end up watching some of the matches when I am home. Being an ardent fan of Lionel Messi and Barcelona, probably my heart will beat for Argentina.
Messi is special. He is so natural that at times, I feel, he was born with a football. The only problem in the World Cup is that the matches will be post midnight. The time zones are different and I may not be able to sit up that late to enjoy a game.
Even though I have shot for movies across the world, I haven't met any international footballer. I'm guessing even if I do, language could be a problem.
