I have a question. How is the game sold out and only listed at 74,000 as attendence? when the capacity is 86,000.

Most unlucky team thus far: TNT. We were placed in a group with African Hosts Egypt, Europe powerhouse Italia and Paraguay who beat Brazil in qualification. There was no other tougher group nor was there a more exciting one for most. TNT qualified ahead of Mexico, Canada and even draw with eventual winners Costa Rica. TNT hit the post six times in this competition or more and had a goal disallowed by fractions.
