Coordinating the Team

  • Paul A. Moore


Every 4 years, the sporting world gets intensely focused as nations come together to prove which team is better on the football pitch. The World Cup is a dizzying tournament of games where national pride and individual legacies are at stake. Preparation and qualification for the World Cup is a long and arduous process, so in totality, the event is really much longer than the month the tournament runs. Despite the long period of qualifying, an entire nation’s hopes and dreams, particularly in countries with rich traditions of football, are tied to the events and outcomes of those tournament games.
