Tissot Quickster Football watch in the trademark colours of Brazil, this year’s host country, ($475), at select retailers across Canada. My earliest World Cup memory is of the 1994 championship game, Italy against Brazil, my brothers and I feverishly waving our Italian flag on my nonna’s veranda to the chorus of unrelenting honks from the cars passing by. (It was, unsurprisingly, a southern Italian enclave of Toronto, so inciting rapturous support for the
Azzuri wasn’t too hard to drum up.)
