People watching – everybody does it. We even stopped a few people at Dusseldorf ­Airport to ask them: Where will you be watching the soccer World Cup?

We have a giant TV in the shared house where I live in Tilburg in the Netherlands, and that’s where everyone will come to watch!

I love public screenings! My tip is the Westfallenhalle venue in Dortmund. There’s always a really good atmosphere there.

I’ll be in Nigeria in June. Freedom Park in Lagos puts on concerts and film evenings, and I’m hoping they’ll also broadcast soccer this summer.

I always watch soccer games with my three best buddies in the bars and restaurants of the trendy Malasaña district in Madrid.
