New York, NY (PRWEB) November 15, 2013
Ticket Down announces that there will be several friendly international soccer matches occurring during mid-November. With the World Cup less than a year away, the world of soccer is heating up. International teams are trying to figure out the lineups that work, determine who the essential pieces to a title are and most importantly, trying to gain momentum as they head into the most important soccer tournament in the world. The 2014 World Cup will be held in Brazil, the country that has won more World Cup's than any other nation, but the host nation will have a lot of work to do to add another title. In an effort to prepare for the tournament, the Brazilian team will travel to the United States for an international friendly, as will their South American counterpart, Argentina.
The home of the New York Giants and New York Jets will welcome the talented Argentinian team against Ecuador. Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, one of the top two players in the world according to most fans, will look to get in position for a great World Cup run by beating Ecuador. Argentina has won two World Cup's in the past and will be looking for a third in 2014.
With Ecuador, you have a team that is currently ranked 22nd by FIFA and will be making just their third appearance at the World Cup. Their second appearance in 2006 was their most successful to date, reaching the round of 16.
With five World Cup's, Brazil has been the most successful soccer team in the world and has seen the best players wear the green, yellow and blue. From Pele and Ronaldo to Ronaldinho and Neymar, Brazil has a great history of producing stars. Neymar has one of the brightest futures in the sport and Hulk is another player that could make or break the Brazilian hope for 2014. Before the 11th ranked team in the world plays at home, they will travel to Sun Life Stadium to take on the Honduran National team.
Honduras is a nation that has never advanced out of group stage play at the World Cup and hasn't even picked up a win in the big tournament. As the 34th ranked team in the world, they are hoping for better things in 2014 and a great way to prepare for that would be with a victory over the soccer powerhouse.
Argentina will play their second game in four days when they take on the upstart team from Bosnia. Argentina, ranked third in the world by FIFA should face a tough test from the 16th ranked team from Bosnia. The 2014 World Cup will be the first appearance for Bosnia as an independent nation and one that could see great results. A great way to propel themselves towards World Cup success would be to knock off one of the best teams in the world.
