Hello World Cup lovers!
World Cup 2018 Russia has been phenomenal. With underdogs stepping like Russia and Japan stepping up, and well known teams being eliminated, this world tournament has been full of surprises so far. I have loved soccer since elementary school. People wouldn't see me a die hard fan, but whenever I am watching games I enjoy them to the fullest.
What I find most fun to watch besides the technical plays is actually the comradeship of the teams and especially between the people rooting for their them. Not only do we see people being closer together in their respective countries, but we also see people from different countries coming together and have a good time, and respect each other.
I found this video that shows beautiful moments from previous worldcups.
I wanted to do something fun and at the same time raise a small fund to use to bring smiles to people. This idea came from that I wanted to do a worldcup prediction challenge with my team from @promo-mentors. I had in mind to do a hard challenge which involved in predicting the results of all the upcoming matches for which they would receive a big reward if they were able to. I myself am involved in two wordcup contests of @worldcup-rusia (hosted by @anomadsoul and @acidyo) and of @steemitboard. I rarely join contests, but these ones has been very fun, which is why I want to hold a bet with you guys who is able to gaze in to the future and predict the results of the upcoming matches of the quarter and semi finals and the results of the final match.I am putting 20 SBD in this bet and the earnings from the @promo-mentors account!
How it works
