It must qualify among the grossest penalties of the cup, if not the most. The Kramer thing was absolutly nothing... just a way to justify this action.

Embarrassing but expected.

Agüero was forgiven in the extra time, when the match could have been already decided if we had had right officiating. However, Höwedes was forgiven in the first half. I can forgive this, but this penalty was incredible.

Robbery.



Yeah, and Earth is flat.
Double standards....
Lol. Nobody thinks it was a penalty. No media around the world will even mention it, tomorrow. You look ridiculous. Please loose with class and humility.

razor thin margin. Even the opportunities were really narrow openings.

This world Cup featured the most exiting group matches in recent memories and the most boring defensive efforts in the final four rounds, save for the thrashings of Brazil.

A bummer that it could not have been France in the final.

four long years to wait...

I didnt watch it but at least the 'good guys' won, Argentinian footballers are usually pretty despicable. To think I never thought I would actually 'want' the Germans to win a final!

Argentina may win in 2018 but not quite this generation, pretty much all players will be >30 years of age. Messi for instance will be 31. In fact, out of the big traditional teams, Argentina is probably the one that will need more renovation. IMO, this generation came even stronger to the 2010 WC, but Maradona blew it. In this WC, they played well the final game, but other than that I thought they were rather unimpressive, reached the finals because they had a favorable and easy path and the semifinal was very balanced, a coin toss in the end with the penalty kicks.

I think there is a good chance Germany will keep dominant for some time. They developed and invested in an excellent project for the long term and has a clear plan to replace the few ones that will be too old for 2018. They have a good chance to repeat Brazil in 58-62 and win 2 cups in roll.
