November 8, 2022

Ayush Mishra

Favorite teams: USA, England

Favorite player: Son Heung-min

“Having a good Asian player in the World Cup representing is big, and also I like him because he scores a lot of goals for Tottenham [Hotspur F.C.].”


Isabella Alvarez 

Favorite team: Argentina

Favorite player: Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi

“My family’s from Mexico, so [I support Argentina] from just the association of a fellow Latin American country.”


Leyton Mueller

Favorite team: Germany

Favorite player: Thomas Müller 

“2014 was my first World Cup. I watched and I saw Germany, and I’m mostly German.”


Ana Cucalon

Favorite team: England

“I grew up in England, well in a French school, so those are the two other countries aside from Colombia that I would root for. But in one of the last World Cups, England disqualified Colombia in penalties, so I’m going to be rooting for them this year.”


Frederick Pytel

Favorite teams: Germany, Poland

Favorite player: Robert Lewandowski 

“One of his last chances to get really far, so it would just be nice for them to get far in the World Cup. It should be fun to see how, now — with a lot of the players that I’ve grown up watching are just getting older now, and now there is a new generation of players — so it will be interesting to see new players I don’t really know about.”
