World Cup 2014: A Latin Revolution with a European Winner

The 2014 World Cup is over, and it is the trophy time. Messi was voted the best player. The commentator claimed that Messi is the king, but Diego remains the God (actually, he even looked like Buddha not long ago). This World Cup was a Latin revolution with European winners. Once again, football mirrored reality - despite the growth of the emerging economies in South America, Europe still dominates in real terms. And even if all other countries fail, they are still saved by Germany.

Injuries

For me, the World Cup was further evidence that mankind is going through regression in terms of physical prowess and toughness. We are getting too comfortable! Kids have to bring sports drinks for a 45min PE class and the marks that hardly got me through my athletics exams at university would pass with flying colours today.

Many players had to be carried off the pitch, which testifies to my theory, and this trend is even visible in the new stretchers used for carrying the players off the pitch. Before, they were narrow, but now they are deeper to stop the players falling.
