The World Cup Final

Tonight is the night- the passion and energy of The World Cup shall reach their crescendo in the final match for the next four years. On the one hand we have the dynamic and surprisingly successful Italy, who made it this far by scoring in the last few minutes of their match with Germany. Seeing the running, shaking head of the scorer, we could see the breakthrough that was happening- a contender beating a favourite. There is always something strange and vivifying about the unexpected coming true and you could certainly see it on the faces of the Italian players. Of course for the Germans, who had played so well and so diligently it was a time of shocked disappointment, though they handled it with grace and decency. They made it to third place last night in an entertaining if rather lukewarm game with Portugal, so at least they can feel they did well and most of all played well
 
Similarly, France managed to make their way past Brazil, an effort credited to the incredible poise and focus of Zidane, the man of The Cup and of awesome dedication. France has fought hard to get so far- but will that be enough, will anything be enough to stop the fluke shots of a passionate team? Soon we are to find out- the exciting thing being that we really don’t and can’t know what will happen next. It is in the lap of the gods.
