World Cup Soccer Quotes

The latest collection of World Cup Soccer quotes on Everyday Power Blog.

This year’s World Cup is one of the most viewed tournaments in history. We have been able to watch the teams and hundreds of players compete at the highest level.

Even better, based on all of the interviews and reports, we can even get into the mind of these extraordinary athletes.

All of the players have clearly demonstrated a major commitment to excellence, and that alone is super inspiring.

The 2018 World cup, which was held in Russia, was the 21st edition of the international football tournament. France once again showed its footballing prowess when it fought Croatia off in the final. This was France’s second world cup title and the first since it won on home soil in 1998.

Despite losing the final, Croatia captured the hearts of many around the world with their thrilling run to the final. The Croats survived three consecutive extra-time games and two penalty shootouts to reach their first ever World cup final, and they even had the better of the game. This was an amazing feat considering Croatia has a relatively small population of only 4.2 million people.

In that regard, here are some beautiful world cup soccer quotes to inspire you.
