Yes the final is here!! Finally and sadly too we are ready for the last match of this World Cup, I don’t know what I am going to do with my life after this is over…. Ok I do know I will go back to my normal life which ever that is oiii….
Germany vs Argentina!!
Europe vs America kind of thing ;), they have met two times before in previous finals, 86′ Argentina won, and 90′ Germany won, so this would be their third final and in a couple of hours we will find out which team will win this time!
Before getting into this final, can we please acknowledge the debacle of Brazil…
Aside from ruin my dream final chances; Brazil vs Argentina, and ruin my predictions, I know who cares!!… I did ;(… Anyhow, aside from that Oh Em Gee! Were you serious! that match was history in the making I mean I will tell my kids that Brazil was humiliated in their own backyard… say what? Yes that actually happened and I felt so shocked and sooo sad for all Brazilians, there is no excuse they are Brazil for crying out loud, they don’t or should not lose a match 1-7 … but the truth is that they did and it was one of saddest moments, forget about surprising, it was beyond that, if you think I am exaggerating or being dramatic (usually I am) this time Brazil gave us all the drama. Twitter went crazy, Facebook went crazy too, everyone was in total disbelief but at the end the only thing that matters is that we all hope that Brazil will renew, rebuilt or re-organized their football for the good of football and because that country deserve a better Seleção. They breath and live this sport to the maximum, so let’s hope after the storm or in this case the hurricane, things will change and they will be back to be the Brazil we all know and have admired for many years.
Let’s move on because we have a bigger drama…. (now I am exaggerating… or maybe not) Is a final so it’s all drama, nerves, and emotions!!
The favorites, after the 7-1 vs Brazil, they kind of have that invincible tag on them, but a huge part of that was Brazil responsibility or lack of playing something, so let’s not all jump in the invincible tag yet, because yes they have been the more consistent, complete team in all their lines, defense, an incredible midfield and a great attacking, they are A Team and that is their strength, they not only have one or two great players they have like five great ones and the others are not far from that level, they have done a very solid tournaments, with just a few complications, Ghana wasn’t easy for them they only were able to tied 2-2, then vs USA they won but the white, red and blue had a couple of chances to complicate them, and later well Algeria gave them more than one problem so yes, they are not invincible but let’s put it this way they have looked very close to be too good to be true… They have put the good football and have the well deserved favorite title for this final.
Your have to play the match before to get the trophy, and for that I wouldn’t rule out Argentina… not so fast people… it seems that everyone is ready to give Germany the trophy and the World Cup without even playing the final, I said they are favorites but that’s one thing , being the Champions that a whole 90 minutes or more kind of other thing. Argentina which have grown during this tournament and as much as every one like to say that it’s Messi and 10 more, well it was at the beginning and he even saved and made them advance but what the good about Argentina is that in each match they have had a player that have stepped up, first was Di Maria who was the only one kind of supporting Messi, then Higuain made his appearance with that goal, and we have seen Lavezzi and Enzo Perez stepping up in the latest games, and Mascherano who is the soul of this team, so if you consider that, there is the chance that during the final all of them will step up at the same time.
Yes one can argue that they haven’t done what we call a beautiful type of game, and they have played more on the defense side, and probably haven’t been as consistent as Germany but they have grown in this tournament, they have the players to do a good final, and it’s one match and anything can happen, so who knows, maybe Messi will become the World Cup legend everyone is expecting him to be, and maybe they can give Germany a good fight and why not wining the World Cup… oiii those are big word!!
And they might have a secret player in their line up ;O
It’s going to be a tough match or at least that is what everyone is expecting, we can have a trilling match or a boring one who knows, last World Cup final wasn’t as good as everyone expected so if is better than that one, I would be pleased hehehe… Let’s pray hehe
My prediction; ahhhh it’s tough, but I will jump…. I will say Argentina!!!!
(Disclaimer; This might be a bias prediction, I just want the Cup to stay in America, and well I kind of don’t like how everyone have already given Germany the Championship before playing haaa, so for that I would like to see Argentina proving them wrong hehe… I know is pure emotion! )
Hey it’s the World Cup, it’s all about passion and emotions! 🙂
Thanks for reading, let me know in the comments area who do you think will win the World Cup? Which team will add another star to their jersey?
