world cup is over

Hello World !!!

The Quaterfinals of the World cup has been a big letdown.
The Favourites - Brazil, Argentina and England are out.

Brazil and England - the two most high profiled teams with
an array of stars did'nt click at all. No wonder they have crashed out.

Argentina was one team which was playing free flowing attractive football;
but they lost to the hosts Germany due to poor insight on part of their coach Pekerman.
Leading 1-0 upto the last 10 minutes and dominating the game, the coach did
a blunder by removing Riquelme who was controlling the midfield beautifully
and replaced him with a defensive midfielder - this swung the game as the
Germans attacked and managed to score. To add to their wounds the Argentinan
goalkeeper was injured & had to be replaced - so no room for Messi in extra time
as their substitutions were over.

The semi-final lineup now is -
Germany vs. Italy
France vs. Portugal

All 4 European teams. My interest in this world cup is over now.

Cheers !!!
