"But when I was five years old, a country called Canada welcomed us in", he told delegates at the FIFA Congress in Moscow.

Meaning even if you know nothing at all about the game, the sport, the event, you can still sound like an absolute expert by confidently telling your friends that the victor will definitely be one of those who've either been there and done it or won it before.
