WOW where do I start? The amount of goals scored and the results! The two greatest ballers of this generation sent home after crashing out. England bringing together its nation, being so close to bringing it home but the champions France still won! So much happened that I think this could have been one of the best world cups I have personally witnessed.
I am slightly bias in saying, I really do think England should have won! They had the luck of the draw on their side, as a team they played well. They did not play brilliant but they had some stand out performers. Maguire was a rock, Lingard was immense, Sterling was criticized throughout but personally he ran the teams ragged. Kane scored but for me he looked uncomfortable, was he injured? It’s a shame they lost to Croatia but that’s football. Gareth Southgate and the team should be proud. Well done boys.
When Ronaldo started scoring in the first game I thought here we go! He’s going to outgun Messi, and to be honest I think they both disappointed as the matches went on apart from that sublime skill and goal by Messi; but the fact is they went out early. The same with Germany, what a disappointment, tell me why did he not bring Sane of Manchester City to the World Cup. What a plonker?! In my eyes, Lowe is. Sane had just won the Premier League, was immense throughout in scoring and assisting and would have been on a high.
Special mention to Croatia, they played well and just ran out of steam in the final, but for me I felt the Belgium team was very strong and could have gone on to win the Cup. Lukaku was a beast but Hazard, OMG I was super gassed by him. The way he held the ball, turned and dribbled WOW! Then you had Mbappe, he did all right, LOL he destroyed every defender insight. This guy has a bright future, hope he stays injury free. Lets not forget the midfield maestros, special shout out to Pogba, Modric and Rakitic with the help of their respective colleagues these boys were a delight to watch.
A massive congratulations to France, worthy champions at the end of a brilliant World Cup. The sad thing about the World Cup ending is you just don’t know what to do with your life now. Bring on Qatar 2022 I can’t wait.
