well there should be time for some evangelism from now till 2006....
but hey, Germans are arrogant? u should check out England, Italy and Portugal :rbounce:
I thought the Germans are very low key throughout the whole tournament.....much is made of other games, while the Germans quietly slipped into the Finals....
And let's not forget the Germans attacked quite a bit more than the Brazilians in the first half and early in the second half, before they conceded the first goal. They created many corners too, but were unfortunately unable to convert any of them.
And it took an error from Kahn for Brazil to score.
in fact, i think they played most creatively today compared to their previous games....
The Germans played much better today than in their previous matches. I kinda believe now that if you stick with pple with high standards, you tend to display that high standards yourself. Applies to life in general.
But it's good Brazil won. Germans have been having a good time thru this World Cup. They didn't quite meet any strong traditional team in this World Cup. This is quite a "weird" WC with the big teams out so early and small teams like USA and Korea qualifying far. But at the end, I'd rather Brazil won. They truly deserve it.
The world cup winners and finalist is becoming more and more of a routine stuff.
1994-Brazil vs Italy
1998-Brazil vs France
2002-Brazil vs Germany
Seems like Brazil is dominating this game at the world stage.
After some time, it gets kind of boring.
What happened to the other countries?
I guess it's pretty obvious that this Brazil team isn't as good as that of the past, so to say, Brazillian samba has sort of slackened, but why aren't the other countries imrproving?
We can see that teams like Turkeys, Senegal are progressing in the right way. But eventually, it's still the same few winners.
I'm sure we all want to see new winners, so my conclusion for this world cup is, quite a handful of surprises, but end of the day, it's the same old story again. In a nutshell, Boring.
