    So for the third-place play-off, the Irish coverage allowed 3 comedians, pretending to be some of the actual pundits, provide the punditry for the game.:D

    So there we are. 4 years of waiting, a year of fate (confederations), and 32 days of justice. The former reign has fallen (Spain), the new ones took place (Germany).

    Honestly, the former may have better ceremonies and songs and such. But for the matches itself, this is perhaps better. Many top players gone up and also down. Especially spiced with many infamous haggles like Suarez, Neymar, etc.

    Not to mention, 'Mericans are now showing interests with this sort of thing. Though I suspect the best they'll remember is Tim Howard with his many saves (before beaten by someone else).

    We watched it and generates this 137 pages of this history as from this writing. By journey from the first page, we can see ours exited about was expected world cup, then speculating about whos gonna qualify and whos gonna win. Its an interesting progress Brazil vs Croatia to now Argentina vs German.

    Thats all for this quad-year world cup. Hope we see again at 2018 Russian world cup. This is FrzGT signing off.

    No. We still didn't have a recap post, you know, for better ending for all of us ;)

    Wasn't really a special goal, though. Sneijders 1-1 in that match was better but neither come close to what Van Persie did.

    Well, Sneijder's goal against Mexico WAS better than Mexico's goal in that match.

    Well I'm going to recap, here's what we have seen....Spain's spectacular downfall, England being England, USA introducing millions more Americans to something called 'Soccer', teams surprising the hell out of us like Costa Rica and Algeria, Ghana's gold-digging players, players hitting the headlines as usual...Suarez, Ochoa, Klose, Neymar, Navas, Mascherano, Robben, Howard, Brazil's unforgettable exit and those 18 minutes, Some quite unbelievable overachieving by Holland and finally the Germans getting what they deserve....

    ....its been a brilliant tournament I have loved every second, sure there were boring games but they were few and far between, it has been entertaining for the most part and I think Brazil have been great hosts....and perhaps most importantly of all, the right team won!

    So a few things, Pogba won young player of the tournament and Cuadado of Colombia got most assists with four and Neuer completed 242 passes...which is more than Messi got!!

    Another meaningless stat I'm seeing everywhere. Must have missed the part where Neuer had 2/4 men marking him everytime he had the ball.

    I don't think it's a foul regardless, but it's a German free kick because Neuer clearly gets there first, and Higuain comes through him after the ball has been punched away. Imagine it being a defender clearing the ball and then Higuain tackling through him after the clearance.

    Found this out earlier, this is impressive

    6 months before the World Cup the Germans came to Bahia, Brazil and built:

    -A Hotel
    -Health Centre
    -A Football field
    -They took no German employees, they only hired locals

    During the World Cup the German players:
    -Socialized with the locals, went with them to the beach and to the city
    -Had a big festival with the local population
    -Visited the Native Brazilians and donated 10k Euros to buy them an Ambulance
    -They wore the local's football team kit and sang their anthem

    After that victory of Brazil:
    -They apologised
    -Thanked the whole Brazilian nation on social networks for the nice hospitality in their country

    And now that they leave Brazil:
    They have everything they built for the local people, the facilities will be transformed into a school for children

    What a fantastic example they have set :tup:
