- Which country is most likely to win this year's football world cup and why?
I believe Germany is the strongest contender for this year's World Cup, and they've been putting in a lot of effort and have consistently been reaching the quarter-finals for 30+ years.
- What's your favorite memory with respect to the football world cup?
The first time I went to the stadium as a kid was a life-changing experience with my father and uncle; we arrived there early, and they had bought me a jersey and a flag to cheer for the team, people are very passionate about supporting their team, and that was no exception.
- Please share some thoughts on your country's footballing culture.
Mexico is very invested in football, for some of the teams, the fans will camp outside the stadiums as the new season tickets are on sale, and the stadiums would be almost sold out at the pre-sale stage. Besides going to the stadiums, it's quite normal for people to gather at pubs and restaurants or have a barbeque at home to watch the games.
