This is great. There should be some lighter side to life. Good you are putting something non-serious. Thanks.

The unexpected is happening. But the way Ghana played in the quarters was amazing. They lost on the shoot out. That is fine. Now Uruguay is knocked out. If Germany does not win it will be a huge upset.

Obviously, it was a WC to remember! The definition of minnows totally changed in this tournament!

And it is an upset. Spain played too good and deservingly won 1-0. They kept the possession of the ball throughout and the ball was mostly in the German half. While Germany had only three chances which they could have converted to a goal, Spain had over a dozen and a beautiful header on a corner did the job for them. Congrats Spain.

The big teams got defeated by the small ones... Amazing world cup! one to remember.
World champions Italy lost to Slovakia! who would have even thought that would happen.. there were many other similar cases such as the loss of brazil. Very interesting cup.

Good Sohaib good analysis. In the end it was a great time for all. But the final disappointed me from a technical football point of view. There were not great passes. No finesse was seen. The Dutch were too rough all the time. But you are right the best teams were eliminated earlier. Lets wait and see what happens four years later.
