Hardcore soccer fans don't really care about confederations cup, but occasional viewers like to watch international soccer games, and confederations cup offers them just that. The fact that top countries went with their full squad and are not using this tournament only to do some sort of experiments is also contributing to the interest from people.

I gotta admit, it's the first time I'm watching confederations cup games, and we've had some great games so far. I'm expecting a spectacular showing in the final tonight.
