My World Cup.  
As you all might know, arsenal.com is running a series called My World Cup. This is what Verma had to say about Belgium and their fortunes.


My first memory of Belgium at the World Cup is...
"USA 1994. It was the first World Cup I watched on television. I have the tape at home."

Our best World Cup was...
"It was 1986 in Mexico, we got to the Semi-Finals. It was huge and you see now it is difficult for us to be in the World Cup so it was very big for a small country."

My country's outstanding World Cup game was...
"I think it was Belgium v Holland at the World Cup in 1994. We won 1-0 and for us as a Belgian crowd it is nice to beat Holland."

Our most memorable individual performance at the World Cup was...
"It was Michel Preudhomme who had a lot of saves that game and he saved Belgium because he had some difficult shots to save. I think that is why we won the game."

My favourite World Cup tournament was...
"I think it was 1994 because I watched all the games and it was the first one in my memory."

My most memorable game overall is...
"That was France v Brazil, the final at France 1998. Zidane scored twice and was the best player."

I think my country is better than Brazil because...
"It's not very realistic but maybe if the Brazilians have a lazy day maybe we can win because we work hard and we have a good spirit in our team."

Girl, I was so tiny during WC 1994 that I don't think I was even allowed to watch TV unless it was some kiddies programme...

Ah that pic. Epicness to the highest degree.

You realize you're making me feel like a baby? Because I didn't start properly paying attention until 2002...

I remember World Cup 2002, the final especially. Oh man.
Hah, I remember my mother being interested in football when Becks went to Real Madrid. Never before that, not much after it either.
