2018 FIFA World Cup Russia is on and millions of soccer fans will be following the games at the various stadiums in Russia, on their television sets, smartphones or even the radio.

For the past 8 years, this blog has been telling soccer stories and soccer chants that these tournaments have produced. Abusive or encouraging, soccer chants are here to stay. Below are the connections for such stories.
I must thank writers of this blog like Happy Tay and Allan Thompson who have kindly contributed these football tales about Singapore and international soccer.
