World Cup thoughts

Spain deserved to win. Completely dominant even in the game they lost. Also, here is my Best XI from the world cup:

The formation has to be 4-2-3-1 since that's what most of the teams played. So:

Diego Forlan
Leonel Messi-Xavi-Thomas Müller
Michael Bradley-Bastian Schweinsteiger
Gio-Simon Kjaer-Ryan Nelson-Sergio Ramos
Vincent Enyeama

bench: Keisuke Honda, Wesley Sneijder, Luis Suarez, Jorge Fucile, Diego Godin, Asamoah Gyan

Who'd have thought that a) Ryan Nelson from New Zealand would make my best eleven, or that b) he'd be on the only team to leave South Africa undefeated? And who'd have thought that the best eleven would have an American at central midfield, and no Brazilians anywhere?

My thoughts on Luis Suarez: he's not a 'cheater'. He fouled, was caught and punished appropriately. Gyan should have hit his PK. It's the same as if a defender fouls from behind on a break-away.

We will see either goal-line technology or an extra official behind each goal in the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
