WORLD CUP: THE BALL IS ROUND

Dear readers, yesterday night I tuned in to the exciting match between Germany and South Korea for World Cup 2018. Before the match, I did a poll on Singapore Stocks Investing Facebook, polling readers on who they thought the winner would be. Exactly two-third of those who participated in the polls gave their vote to Germany and this was not surprising since technically, it seems that Germany has the technical edge. And this was perhaps why the Singapore Pools had earlier given the odds of 1 to 11 for South Korea to win Germany. Like what I have said before the polls, though Germany is my favorite team, I also support South Korea as it was one of the few Asian teams to make it to the World Cup.
