Are you getting excited Yet? We are! You can watch all the 2018 Fifa World Cup Football action LIVE and on big screen with English commentary at the East 88 Restaurant & Beach lounge, inside Serenity Resort & Residences Phuket, starting on the evening of 14th June 2018 at 22:00 with Russia vs Saudi Arabia.
In the meantime, to get you in the mood, we asked some of our heads of department for their 2018 football world cup predictions.
We asked our heads of department at the hotel the following 3 questions:
- Which team will win the 2018 Football World Cup?
- Which team will be runner-up at the 2018 Football World Cup?
- Which player will win the 2018 golden boot (score most goals)?
I can’t help feeling that some of us are being a little bit biased with our predictions, but here are the results:
|Name: Urs Aebi
Position: General Manager
Urs, our Swiss General Manager (and FC Basel super-fan), has predicted a Belgium Vs Switzerland final, but surprisingly opted for a Belgian victory and the golden boot for Cristiano Ronaldo.
|Name: Paolo Guarracino
Position: Executive Assistant Manager
Paolo, our Executive Assistant Manager from the epic footballing city of Milan, Italy, has begrudgingly chosen Germany for the win (in the absence of Italy) and chosen Argentina for the runner-up position with Leo Messi as top scorer.
|Name: Edward Kennedy
Position: E-Commerce & Revenue Manager
Ever the optimist, our English (and perhaps delusional) E-Commerce & Revenue Manager has tipped England to overcome the “52 years of hurt” since the last English victory in 1966 and beat Germany in the World Cup final with Harry Kane providing the most goals.
|Name: Phattaraphon (Om) Thipphawong
Position: Executive Chef
Our talented Chef, Om is on hand to prepare some delicious food and snacks for you to enjoy before watching the games live at East 88. Also an avid football fan, Chef Om has chosen Brazil for the win, Germany as runner up and Leo Messi as the golden boot winner.
|Name: Sarayuth (Po) Mamean
Position: East 88 Restaurant Manager
Regulars of East 88 will need no introduction to the ever-present “Po”, but what you may not know is a Football (and more specifically Liverpool) Super fan and he will ensure that you never run out of drinks while watching all the action live at East 88. Po has tipped Spain to win with France as runner-up and Leo Messi for the golden boot.
