World Cup 2014: Farewell Brazil… hello Russia!

via theguardian

Back to earth.  And it’s Germany.

Players on both sides did give each other the run of their lives.  Argentina’s Mascherano was quoted

We have represented our country the best we could. We have to lift our heads despite the pain. We gave everything we could out there.

And Messi, the Golden Ball Award, of course.  The way I see it, the Award is not just for this tournament but for the years leading to this tournament; not just for individual technique but also for how he has worked to make his name provide new magic to the game overall.  For that, the Award is for him.

That said, Russia is the next playing ground.  The name itself is mystery and excitement.
