The Home Nation
Although they finished 4th Brazil won’t be happy with how their tournament went. They lost the semi final 7-1 which was just shameful for a country of their stature. They then lost 3-0 to Netherlands meaning they finished 4th conceding 10 goals in their last 2 games, not very good defensively. Overall they didn’t play well at all and actually were lucky to get as far as they did. They’re known as the nation of football, but they didn’t show us that at all this World Cup.
Germany had a strong tournament overall and ended it well, beating Argentina 1-0 in extra time. Although they only won with a 1 goal margin, they had 60% possession and more shots on target than Argentina. You could say that they didn’t deserve to win it as they only got 7 past Brazil! All jokes aside I think they definitely deserved to win the tournament.
The award for best player of the tournament was handed to Messi. This wasn’t a good call as although he did score crucial goals for Argentina he didn’t have the consistency of some of the other players in the tournament. He scored 4 goals but none after the group stages of the competition which is when they are needed most. He also missed the chance that ended up costing them the World Cup it self.
I think it should’ve been given to James Rodríguez. He got the golden boot and was consistent in the games he played. He also got one of, if not the best goal of the World Cup.
Overall it was a good World Cup with a lot of exciting and high scoring games. We’ve seen how Spain have lost their dominance and we’ve seen Germany deservedly rise to win it.
