The World Cup Final (Replay)

Well, I’m watching the game through again just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Now just near the end of the first half. Yep, there is a lot of fouling and diving going on here. France definitely looks to be the better team, so in a sense it’s a shame they didn’t win it. Italy simply looks like the luckier of the two. Who’s to say that doesn’t count, though- where does subtle flair end and sheer luck begin? Also it is pretty hard to say who is actually playing better. The fact that Italy scored a goal from a mere free kick and France got a cheeky penalty does give the Italians the overall edge here- as does their superior possession percentage (58% vs. 42%).

Hmm. Certainly a nice, golden ball they have there. I don’t think too many people would be satisfied just kicking that around, though. I’ll write a bit more after it’s all over, penalty kicks included…
