World Cup 2014

The World Cup 2014 was arguably one of if not the best World Cup ever and much credit has to go to Brazil who were great hosts and showed they could put on a great spectacle despite the criticism beforehand. The football was also amazing with loads of goals by great players in great games.

Some of my highlights were:

Best games
Brazil 3-1 Croatia – the opening game which got the tournament going.
Holland 5-1 Spain – Very surprising with Spain getting destroyed.
Brazil 1-7 Germany – Best game of tournament with the hosts getting thrashed by Germany.

Best Goals
James Rodriguez volley against Uruguay
Van Persie headed goal against Spain
Tim Cahill volley against Holland

Team of the tournament
GK: Manuel Neuer (Germany) Golden Glove
RB: Phillip Lahm (Germany)
CB: Mats Hummels (Germany)
CB: Ron Vlaar (Holland)
LB: Daley Blind (Holland)
CDM: Javier Masherano (Argentina)
RW: Arjen Robben (Holland)
LW: Neymar (Brazil)
CAM: James Rodriguez (Colombia) Golden Boot
CF: Lionel Messi (Argentina) Golden Ball
ST: Thomas Muller (Germany)

Subs:
CM: Bastian Schweinsteiger (Germany)
CM: Toni Kroos (Germany)
ST: Robin Van Persie (Holland)

Overall, a fantastic World Cup and I have enjoyed every minute of it (including England’s games) and I really don’t know what I’ll do now! Oh well, only 33 days until the Premier league starts again!
