It’s a feel, and you can feel it even before you get anywhere near the stadium, you can feel it even before you land.
“It’s in the air, it’s a palpable sense of energy that I’ve never quite experienced before. It’s the most consequential sporting event in the world. It’s amazing how deeply, deeply, deeply passionate every country is about the World Cup.”
