How to make money on your home team?

I thought football fans were supposed to skip work in order to watch world cup games. Well certainly there weren't so many people in my corner cafe in Paris, where I went to watch the match between Ivory Coast and Portugal. 20-some year old students sitting at a couple of tables, a few people alone studying, reading, working on laptop computers. I sat next to two men, one of them dressed in a white chef's garb. Why aren't there more people? Weren't today's games supposed to be the killer game?. The strongest teams together? "People don't really care so much unless it's the French team," said the man in white."That's why everybody hopes the French team will do well, so we'll get more business." We, of course, means cafes. Hmm.
