Had it not been for most of top Cairo’s bars and clubs showing the World Cup, I’m pretty sure that the whole thing would have passed me by. I mean, watching overpaid school dropouts running around for ninety minutes isn’t exactly my idea of a good time, but if there’s a bar involved, I’m sure I can find a way to keep myself busy, while everyone around me discusses the pros and cons of playing a narrow diamond in midfield – or whatever. But hey, at least it’ll give people something new to argue about.
