Entertaining, especially for young ones

Entertaining, informative summary of World Cup history. The nine and under set (including both of my kids) will really love it. I, too, enjoyed it, but because both the writing style and the voice performance are aimed at a young audience, it can be a little difficult to listen to at times. For the intended audience, it's a goal. Well done.
