When torpedo-g started playing FIFA Ultimate Trivia, he never expected that it would result in a two-week long World Cup journey that would include match tickets, flights and accommodation in three host cities. As a Grand Prize winner, he was able to select a team to follow for the entire group stage. “As an Albanian, I’ve never seen my national team qualify for the World Cup,” he said. “But when I was a kid my father showed me videos of Holland and Johan Cruyff. The more I watched them play, the more I loved them.”
torpedo-g watched Netherlands play in Salvador, Porto Alegre and Sao Paulo. “My favourite match was the one against Spain. It was the day after my birthday. As an Oranje fan I was crushed after the 2010 Final. When I saw Spain take the lead in Salvador I started having the same bad emotions. The rest is history. The second half was absurd! The Dutch scored four goals on the side I was sitting in!”
