I haven’t posted about the WC yet, so I thought I would correct that.
What a fantastic celebration of sport and cultural identity. The Olympics is great, but the actual events don’t matter so much as the collective completion, but the World Cup is different. It is this planets sport, and there is but one winner. The champion of the Earth’s favourites sport. The champion of the Earth. Now that is so cooooool.
Who do I fancy, I hear you cry. Well, I have the benefit of watching the first few games, and so I will not be picking Spain or England this time around. Holland are looking good, Brazil could do it unless they get very strong referees, Belgium don’t have enough collective experience, Chile have been fantastic, but their high pressure game will eventually run out of steam. I fancy Argentina, assuming Messi stays fit and continues his progress. And I fancy Germany, because they have the most complete team back to front.
Bring on the next matches. Let us see who will conquer the Earth!
