Both countries have never won a World Cup title and there are plenty of excited people from both countries in Oxford right now to really enhance the mood. As I type this, there is singing and cheering in the streets that I can hear out my window. Many students found places around town to watch the game and enjoyed what was likely one of their most memorable World Cup experiences.

World Cup Fever!
Even though England was eliminated from the World Cup several rounds ago, the British do love their football. Today the streets were buzzing with excitement for the final game tonight. This evening, pubs were literally overflowing into the streets as excited fans watched the match between the Netherlands and Spain.
