      Very nice Fkhan2,
      I am really hoping that WI would do all the required renovations before the WC. It would be a nightmare for people coming from overseas and the stadiums not in full operation. Also, it's the first time WC is going to be held in the Carribean so it would be really interesting to see how people there react to the big event.
