Yesterday morning Germany was crowned as the World Champions defeating Argentina in the final. Now the dust has settled, the best team for the tournament won. While Messi didn't set the final alight, he certainly carried Argentina to the final. Probably a fair choice for the Golden Ball winner. Though the stage at the final is probably not the place to award the Golden Ball & Golden Glove.
Still find the size of Germany's win over Brazil hard to believe. Was also disappointed with Holland. Felt that if they played like they did in the third place play-off they would have won their Semis. Can't believe that Holland with Van Persie, Robben & Schneider could not manage a goal in two hours of football against Costa Rica & Argentina, even allowing for some goalkeeping heroics.
For me, Rodriguez's goal v Uruguay is the Goal of the Tournament, inching out Cahill.
Bring on the Women's World Cup in 2015.
