joker97: Hang on ... they've given the player of the tournament aka golden ball to the guy who did nothing over 7 hours of knockout footy ... Surely a political gesture
No goals maybe, but certainly still displayed great skill and set up plenty of chances for his teammates. His final penalty attempt was a bit of a fizzer, but it looked like it came from a player exhausted by carrying his nation's expectations on his shoulders.
Germany were deserved winners. Is it just me or were there some incredibly hot WAGs that came on to the field after the match to celebrate with the German players? Such is the lot of the professional football player.
