Well we are nearly at the end. The World cup is almost over for another lifetime.
The quality has been poor, but the excitement high. It strangely seems to have mirrored the English Premier League (or the EPL for you Americans).
We are down to the last two teams, for the chance to be the Champions of the Earth. You have to say Germany are favorites given their demolition of Brazil. Argentina are probably worthy of a finals spot, Colombia might feel a little sore, but it is a fair final.
Only Messi can save Argentina, and if he does he will have cemented his place in history as one of the top 3 players every to play the game, along with Pele and Maradona. Whether he is the best or not will only be known when he retires. But the win will take him above the likes of Cruyff and Ronaldo (big and little).
Let the battle commence and……..
“Los geht’s Deutschland, kämpfen und siegen!”
