World Cup Soccer
Football World Cup 2002 is being hosted in Asia for the first time!
No Nation has ever lost its first league match and won the World Cup!
Only twice has a team drawn its first match and won the Cup (England in 1966 and Italy in 1982).
No African or Central/North American or Asian team has ever won the World Cup.
In World Cup 2002 matches, Brazil's Ronaldo has scored as many goals himself (five) as England's entire team.

Interesting stuff of the Football World cup...
Here is a very interesting fact!!
Brazil last won the world cup in 1994.
Before that they won it in 1970.
Add 1970 and 1994, it equals 3964.
Argentina last won the world cup in 1986.
Before that they won it in 1978.
Add 1978 and 1986, it equals 3964.
Germany last won in 1990.
Before that they won in 1974.
Add 1990 and 1974, it equals 3964.
So going by this logic, the winner of the 2002 world cup
is the same as the 3964 - 2002 == 1962 world cup.
The 1962 world cup was won by Brazil.
