The world's biggest sporting event of the year, the World Cup, is rocketing towards an exciting finish. Semi-finals with no Brazil or Argentina! And now an all-European final.
Who are you backing?
Thierry Henry's France?
Luis Figo's boys of Portugal?
Have you joined the rediff fan club to support your favourite football team?
It's easily done -- register your e-mail address, first, on Rediff Connexions. Note that it does not have to be a Rediffmail address -- your regular one will do.
You can do this in the new user area on the right side of the Rediff Connexions page.
Next, pick your password, fill in a small form that talks you through your school, your college, your interests.
Why do we want information about where you went to school, and what you like besides football?
Glad you asked -- Connexions is all about, you guessed it, making connections.
Once we know your interests, it helps us put you in touch with fellow travellers -- long lost schoolmates, for instance; or someone who shares your hobbies, your interests, your peeves.
The Internet made the world a small place; Connexions is all about making it still smaller.
We will send you an e-mail validating your membership, click on the link in your mail -- and you are in!
Click on the fan club you would like to join below, join, and you are good to go. As a fan club member you can trade views on your favourite footballer. Don't forget to comment on other fan comments!
Or better still go to Rediff Connexions start your own football group!
