WATCH John Oliver’s Rant About FIFA and the World Cup: Must-See TV [VIDEO]

fifa go home WATCH John Olivers Rant About FIFA and the World Cup: Must See TV [VIDEO]

We’re big fans of John Oliver, the host of the HBO show “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.” The soccer-mad comedian and TV show host (who’s a fanatical Liverpool FC supporter) has beautifully summed up FIFA and the World Cup, and the schizophrenic feelings that many soccer fans have about hating FIFA and loving the biggest soccer tournament in the world.

Oliver encapsulates the feelings among many soccer fans regarding FIFA and the World Cup. His excitement for the World Cup is tempered by knowing information about FIFA, the organization that produces it. John details the problems with the upcoming tournament and the staggering allegations of corruption against FIFA.

Watch the must-see video here:
