It’s been a while since the last FIFA post. But now you’re reading one, congrats.
The finals were yesterday, (or today, but the game was at midnight-ish here) so chances are that you’ve already heard who won. If that’s the case, then don’t even bother finishing this post.
If that is not, the case, however, then keep going. I’ll try not to spoil who won till the end.
Let’s take this step by step. Last post, there were 16 teams that I talked about. Those sixteen teams were then reduced to eight teams. Those teams were:
- Costa Rica
Then, reduced to four.
To get to this stage, Brazil had to win against Columbia. They did, obviously, but Neymar, their best player, got injured, and he wouldn’t be able to play for the rest of the championship. Ooooh…burn…. Aaaaanyway…
Two games are going to be played at this point to determine which two teams will play at the finals for first and second places, and to determine which teams will be playing for third or fourth place. Thankfully, no one will be eliminated if they lose, they’ll just be told which of the two games they will be playing in.
Brazil went up against Germany with both the team captain and Neymar, their best player, missing, and they lost 1-7. Ouch. Embarrassing. Seriously though, I watched that game, and it was epic.
Sorry Brazil, but it was. 🙁 🙂 (bittersweet moment. I think.)
It was all like- pow! GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m not kidding. There were, like, three goals within five minutes. AWESOME! Germany totally deserved the w- oops. Sorry. I meant whoops. Instead of w-oops. Yep. I accidentally pressed the slash thingy instead of the “H”. Totally.
The Netherlands vs Argentina game was won by Argentina. Sorry to all the Netherlands fans out there. 😉
Now it’s Argentina-Germany for first place and Brazil- Netherlands for 3rd.
Let’s start with Brazil-Netherlands. This’ll be quick. Brazil lost, Netherlands won 3-0. Or 0-3. I don’t really don’t know which one is the right one. The latter one I think? Well, yeah. Congrats Netherlands!
🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 *cues loud, booming, deep voice*

only time will tell!
enjoooooyyyyy the show! (slash game)
Sadly, I can’t post a video of the game here. You should look it up on you tube. You’ll find it there. If you don’t, blame You Tube. So. Who did win?
Germany!!!! YYYYAAAAAAYYYY! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 GOOOOO GERMANY!!!!
Congrats Germany! Were there any Germany fans out there? I don’t know, I didn’t see any in the comments. But I do recall someone saying that the finals could be Argentina-Germany. I also recall texting someone who was rooting for Germany.
The final score was 1-0. Dissapointing, huh? The most important games always seem to be the most boring ones.
Take 2010, for example. The finals for that year were Spain vs Netherlands, and Spain won 1-0 in extra time. In 2006, it was only a bit better. Italy beat France 1-1 on penalties after the match finished. And 2002? A little better. Only a little, though. Nothing compared to the 1-7 Germany and Brazil match. If you’re going to watch any of the matches on You Tube, (once again, IF they are there) then that is the match you’ll want to watch. Don’t waste your time on the finals when you already know who won.
