Google Trends have often sprung up surprises in the past. It has shown search results and trending topics in a different light altogether. In a recent report by Google, it has shown that the people in the United States have searched for the 'Best Soccer Player in the World' the most number of times. At the time when the FIFA World Cup 2018 is going on, it has grabbed a lot of attention across the globe.
In a recently released list of search results by Google, the topics related to FIFA World Cup 2018 appeared twice in the top 5 list. As the World Cup is taking place in Russia, it was pretty much obvious that ‘Best soccer player in the world’ was at the top of the list and ‘Best goalkeepers in the world' was on the third spot, whereas, second on the list was ‘Best beaches in the world’.

The search term, ‘Best restaurants in the world’, was also one of the most sought queries, by the people living in the US. A couple of days back, the annual showdown of world’s top 50 restaurants took place and the world’s finest restaurants were ranked.
Here’s a Look at the Top 10 Restaurants in the World:
- Osteria Francescana (Modena, Italy)

Every year, since 2002, there’s an annual event wherein the list of the World’s Best 50 restaurants are announced. The jury constitutes of more than 1,000 culinary experts and its ‘structured and audited voting procedure’ ensures that there are no discrepancies in the ranking system. The list of top 50 restaurants in the world was announced at a grand event in Bilbao in Spain, a couple of days back.
Talking about the Google Trends' latest report, it is obvious that queries about soccer (as football is called in the US), would have topped the list. With the first round of matches in the 2018 FIFA World Cup already being done over with, the multi-nation tournament has sprung quite a few surprises so far. Talking about the US, the TV viewership has seen a fall in ratings, in context of FIFA WC 2018, by 44 percent in comparison to World Cup 2014.
