Snacks and sports go together like blue skies and sunshine. It’s hard to imagine watching a game with your besties without bowls of something tasty and quick to crunch down on. Whether thrown in the air in victory, dashed to the ground in defeat – or held motionless in front of open mouths in those tense moments where it could go either way – snacks are always in the picture.
And tasty treats are not only to be found in the hands of enraptured spectators. For athletes, both professional and amateur, quick and easy refueling is one of the pillars of their success. Before, during or after play, the right food can be critical for success.
This year, the tournament, a highlight for millions of football fans all over the globe, will be happening in Qatar for the first time. In fact, this is the first time that the games have been hosted by any country in the Arab world. The dry desert heat of Qatar is also the reason why this is the first world cup to be hosted in November-December. While the venue hasn’t been without its detractors, this world cup is truly a mark of the international appeal of football and shows how sport can bring disparate cultures together.
Favorites to win this year are Brazil. With a strong track record, all the smart money will be on them and their games are sure to be among the most viewed. But fans will be keeping a keen eye on Argentina this year, too. Team captain, Lionel Messi, is considered to be one of the greatest footballers of all time. As this will be his final world cup chance, the pressure is on to add the distinguished trophy to his already impressive cabinet – something which has surely only increased since Argentina’s shock loss to Saudi Arabia in their first game of the tournament.
