WC14 trophies: Jaime's hand (Neuer) and Varys's ball (Messi)
In the end Scolari succumbed to public pressure I think. He was getting shit for Brazil's negative tactics, so he decided to try to be attacking by replacing Neymar with Bernard for the Germany game instead of playing three CMs in 4-3-3, which considering Germany's superior squad would've been the safer and smarter choice.
But Scolari can't be blamed for Marcelo pushing up like crazy (unless he told him to) or Fernandinho dawdling and losing the ball like an idiot. And it's not his fault that Fred is probably Brazil's best striker atm or that Brazil are lacking top-class playmakers.
Your team of the tournament people? Name the best 11..
So glad it's over. Probably the worst WC I saw after that scandalous 2002 bull crap. & why you might ask? I don't know where to begin:
- The way FIFA decided which teams will be group leaders in the draw. Fucking Switzerland, Urugay, Belgium as group leaders & not Italy & Holland. Because why not punish them for not losing a single qualification game.
- So manyyy errors, so many god damn referee errors. Embarrassing for a World Cup. (which in my book has now much lower quality in every sense compared to lets say, the Champions League) You have errors in CL too, but not every single fucking game in & out.
- Low quality games. Boring, predictable knockout stages. Costa Rica, Algeria, Belgium... come on, eh. Who seriously wants to see these dudes in a World Cup knock out stage? & then Holland puts one on top & can't even beat Costa Rica.
Massive palm overall in my book & then comes Germany & wins the final, in a game they didn't deserve to win. Although keeping the overall tournament in mind, the title was deserved.
So, FUCK THE WORLD CUP &...
...let's dump this entire WC shit in the FIF garbage & get back to our dear Inter. I so miss my Inter.
This was a very good WC, much better than the snoozefest that was 2010. The only thing I disliked was how the underdogs did brilliants but just kept falling inches short, Chile, Mexico etc.. All were within few minutes of going further.
But apart from that, it was a good one. Barring Germany, no team was really strong which led to good matches.
LOL. Whether you like WC or int'l football in general is up to you, but you're forgetting how dull 2006 and especially 2010 were.
Barring Germany, no team was really strong which led to good matches.
Disagree, you want to see top teams at their best, not pairs of average teams playing out tedious 0-0 draws over 120 mins because neither are good enough to score.
Lionheart is just salty that Italy got knocked out early and Germany won, but I agree with him on the whole. After the really great group stage the goals dryed up badly. A tight 0-0 every now and again is good, but not every fucking game.
Very predictable too. In almost literally every knockout game the favorite won in the end. Was no real great players either. No one that will actually be remebered. James rodriguez came the closest, but then he couldnt inspire his team to beat the worst brazil side of all time.
