My country get used to keep a low profile at the World Championships. We don't like to provoke the other countries with our fabulous soccer skills. So we always lose and spread the happiness to the others.

pls supply us with the level of each text on the front pace before or after the title i.e A1-B2., so that we can easily choose the proper one for our students' level otherwise it causes us to spend extra time to find

Hello seyhan,

Thank you for the suggestion. We are currently working through our material as part of a reorganisation of the site and part of this involves ensuring that the estimated level is included, as on this page, for example. However, some pages still need to have this added, as you say.



The LearnEnglish Team

German team played a match in Stalingrad. They lost and withdrew from Russia...

Hello! I think we should foget that Russia team is a loser

This time France team is young and powerful!
I'm impressed by the players of Croatia who all have good appearance, eight-head figure, which reminds me of statues of Athene!

I think the winner of the 2018 World Cup will be Croatia. I hope!!!!

As for my country, it has never participated at World Championship (Belarus).

Also ..Forget Germany ..They left early..The girls cry and ask why
No body know but it is true.

The most important moments from the history of the world cup for the Algerian team were the first participation in 1982 when Algeria won against Germany 2/1, also when the national team was qualified for the third time to the world cup in 2010 after 24 years of absence, and finally the best brilliant moment was the qualification in 2014 to second round of the competition for the first time and facing Germany in great match, The Algerians created a lot difficulties to the Germans even they lost 2/1.
