In Topic: The 2014 World Cup- Brazil

Missed most of this thread with looking for a new place to live and changing jobs, but clearly the best team won the tournament. And it was way closer than it should have been in the final.

 

Germany had the depth.

 

Also Messi winning the player of the tournament is an absolute crime, he wasnt even the most impressive Argentinian. Mascherano was better than Messi in the tournament.

 

My Player of the tournament was James Rodriguez.

 

Congrats to Germany. 

 

Brilliant tournament all round.

This quote filled me with a little bit more confidence;

On it coming down to choosing between paying a lot for a defenseman or paying a lot for a forward to help the team offensively:

 

“Sure, the contracts are too long. Sure, the contracts are overpaid. It’s not saying it’s right, but you have to make decisions and do what’s best at that given time.”

I'm sad to see the team not advance but Belgium deserved it, good for them. I have a lot of respect for some of the Belgiums, especially Fellaini and Januzaj so I wouldn't mind seeing them go on a run.

 

I hope Klinsmann sticks around as planned as I trust his vision for the program. He's done a lot of good in getting dual nationals to choose the US, starting a U21 program, and getting guys like Besler, Gonzalez, and Zusi to become important members of the team. Plus in addition to some of the younger players like Green, Yedlin, and Diskerud, they could end up with getting contributions from Agudelo and Pelosi in the future and Fagundez and Zelalem if they get their citizenship sorted. Looks like a bright future.

 

Belgium's two most useless players ? I wonder why :P

 

The USA played well, they refused to give up and I would have been proud if England had put in half the effort. Tim Howard was spectacular, if the USA could produce outfield players of the same quality as their keepers through the years they would be an international force.

 

We are down to 8:

 

Brazil vs Columbia

Costa Rica vs Holland

Argentina vs Belgium

Germany vs France

 

My picks for the Semi's:

 

Columbia

Holland

Belgium

France
