    it is interesting for him to

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-It would be interesting for the match to go into extra time.

    Meaning: It would be interesting if the match goes into extra time.

    2-It would be interesting for it to rain during the game.
    Meaning: It would be interesting if it rained during the game.

    3-It would be interesting for them to lose the first match.
    Meaning: It would be interesting if they lost their first match. (They won't find it interesting. But it will be interesting.)

    4-It is interesting for him to be here.
    Meaning: It is interesting that he is here.

    I think '4' is a correct sentence, but it only means: He finds it interesting to be here. I don't think it could mean 'It is interesting that he is here.'

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: it is interesting for him to

    I'm not 100% sure it couldn't be used by anyone ever with that meaning, though most wouldn't.
