Sixty-four games, twenty-five days. It all ends today, the finale with the two top teams, France and Croatia, battling on the field for the gold cup. It has been described as an unpredictable, exciting World Cup with upsets and star players and their respective teams heading home.
There was grit and determination displayed by some teams who, during their 90 minutes plus extra time, went down fighting. There were losses which literally shocked the system of fans. My Editor was looking dazed and incredulous after Germany’s lost, the audacity of those Koreans getting two goals past the defending team.
