All Telegu speaking people should be proud.
For all the hype of Bengal, Goa and Kerala being the hub of football in India, Andhra Pradesh became the first Indian state to play in the Fifa World Cup.
This from the state whose greatest contribution to football in the recent years was this dialogue (by Balakrishna, NTR's son*!):
"U can find tea in teacup. But cannot find world in world cup."
* The source has been disputed by others. Some say it was the Kannada actor, Balakrishna and some say it was Upendra. I don't care too much, but find it funny.
