World Cup South Africa

The World Cup in South Africa finally concluded with an anti-climatic and disappointing Final.

The official honours went to : – 

Champions – Spain
Best Player – Diego Forlan
Top Scorer – Thomas Mueller
Best Young Player – Thomas Muller

Undoubtedly, Spain deserved the title after their perseverance over the month long tournament but somehow it felt hollow, except if you are  Spanish or a die hard Spanish fan, I felt Spain just did not win it convincing enough.

My best and worst for this World Cup are:-

Best Team – Germany
Best Coach – Bert van Marwijk
Best Player – Thomas Mueller
Best Goal – Diego Forlan (vs Germany)
Most Unlucky – Paraguay
Most Creditable – New Zealand
Most Deserving Team – England (going home early)
Worst Diver – Andres Iniesta
Worst Conceded Goal – Robert Green
Worst Flop (Team) – Brazil
Worst Flop (Player) – Cristiano Ronaldo
Worst Coach – Raymond Domenech
Worst Team – France

Lastly, the most undeserving – Andres Iniesta, Man of the Match For The Finals. Unfortunately, winning is what counts. Not fairplay or intregrity.

Let’s hope for Brazil, 2014.

    Forlan’s deserving of the honours ….. Absolutely love the guy. As for the final match… Not entertaining at all… Lacking in flow and so much diving …. Hmmph. The 3rd/4th placing match was much more pleasurable to watch!

    Ghana were not unlucky. They kicked themselves by missing the penalty.
