Wow! What a tournament. What a month. Well done Germany (champions of the world and well deserved), well done Argentina (you came close, so very close), well done Netherlands (you were a great team and showed poise, creativity and mental as well as physical strength throughout your run) and well done Brazil (without your best player you looked lost and you need to retool at the club level, but you are still the fourth best team in the world).
Well done to the Ticos (Costa Rica) who were amongst the 8 best teams in the world and well done USA for surviving the group of death and making it into the round of 16. Well done young James Rodriguez for winning the golden boot. You scored in every match you played. Well done Miroslav Klose for becoming the tournament's all time leading scorer with 16 goals.
Above all, well done Brazil for hosting a month long orgy of viewing pleasure for those of us who love futbol. You did a great job and I for one am sad that it is over. I love the World Cup!
