Must agree, One of the most enjoyable World Cups for a long time, maybe since Germany.
Congrats to France, but I think the Gods of luck were on their side.
Two of their goal were flukes, an own goal mistake, and a weak penalty decision.
I'm no expert, but to my eyes, Croatia played a much better game, with a higher degree of skill.
I say a Big well done to Croatia...they are the Best team in second place, in the tournament.
Now, the controversy, the problem to me (and many others it seems), is very similar to a recent Italian soccer official's views, as per earlier in the
He complained about the number of "Non Italians" playing in the Italian league, and of course, throughout Europe.
Naturally, He was/is referring to all the Negroes in European "National" teams.
Sadly, the French native people didn't win the World Cup...the Africans did!!
Seemingly, more than half the French team and almost half the English team, were black fellas...Africans that is.
Yes, immigrants, immigrants, immigrants etc etc etc..., but they are neither French or English "PEOPLE", they are citizens of those respective
country's, but they are Not its People.
I see the great skill of the real African teams in the competition, but Nowhere in the real African teams do I see a White European native playing for
Imagine the outcry if Any African team had white people in it.....in fact it has, all through the 20th century, South Africa was vilified for having
mainly white European players in its Rugby teams, Cricket teams, Soccer teams....and everything else.
But Nooo With soccer, you can have your complete teams filled with non native immigrants from the dark continent.....but that is Ok, that is "Multi"
Cultural, that is Civilised, that is what good little white people do.....but not what black people do it their own country.
If this continues, soon there will be no white Native European people playing in these "European" teams.....because they will be pushed out, not
because they are not good enough, but because, you know, black people are so down trodden etc, and if anyone complains, they will be labelled
childishly, as "Racist" or "Supremacist" or some other weak label.
Anyway, well done Mother Russia, it was a Great World Cup.
Boo to the European teams, without Europeans playing in them.....
