The two & three tale stories

By: James K. Attaglo Wilson

The final draw of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil has concluded and has noted some intriguing two and three tale stories.

For instance, there are three World Cup champions in one group (Uruguay, Italy & England in Group D) Jurgen Kinsman, former German national team manager, faces off against his former assistant Joachim Low in Group G.

Argentina and Nigeria meet again in the group stages, as they did in Japan/Korea, 2002 & 2010 in South Africa.

Destiny has brought back again the Boateng brothers (Jerome and Kevin Prince-Boateng) in Group G as they did four years ago in South Africa.

Spain and Netherlands who contested the 2010 Final where the former won the Trophy will play their first game of 2014 in Group B.

Again, the only newcomers, Bosnia-Herzegovina will play two-time winners Argentina in their first World Cup finals match.
