    I could only watch the 1st half live. Then my effing phone popped up an alert with the winner. Then even my mother's TV, which was tuned to effing Fox News, ruined the scoreline. I didn't even bother watching what would have been a surprising, thrilling 2nd half :(

    that's a shame because it was an amazing final due to the amount of goals scored and the valiant effort Croatia gave. for me the ref pissed on the match, but you have to say Croatia only scored 2 goals for all of their press and lloris gave them one back as well.

    In the end I think this was a great World Cup. Brazil, Argentina, and Germany were not in the top 4. If you consider Italy and Dutch didn't even make the finals, this made for an odd showing. But I think it shows that Football is spreading around the globe. While people are against expanding the World Cup I think that we are slowly seeing the yield of world cup expansion. Still the team with the most quality won and they didn't even play great all of the time. that tells you how much talent France have compared to other nations. I wish we would have seen more from the France/Belgium match, but in the end France showed a lot of defensive ability by holding them to no goals.
