Wish I could go to Brazil: Armaan Ebrahim

I have been a Brazil fan for as long as I can remember. And I believe they will win the World Cup this time. In Neymar, Oscar and others, the hosts have a very talented team.

I vividly remember watching the final of the 1998 World Cup. I was heartbroken when France beat Brazil 3-0. Ronaldo (the 'original' one) had managed to create some chances with his extraordinary dribbling skills, but the others just couldn't step up.

Another loss that still haunts me is the quarterfinal of the 2006 edition. With players like Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Cafu and others Brazil were supposedly bulletproof. But France were brilliant on that day.

I hope to watch a Word Cup match in a packed stadium some day. That's my biggest dream.

Given that the European racing season starts in couple of days from now, I won't be able to make it to Brazil. However, I will surely watch every game and cheer for Brazil.
