Heh. Well that drew lots of commentary.
I for one was under-impressed. Just too many dubious refs, dives, and teams without an apparent plan of attack.
I'd like to see more African teams. Ghana should've had a moral victory take them to at least the next round.
They may not have the Sicilian defense or whatever the Italians call it, but they played hard and were all around more interesting for me to watch than many. Including ahem, Brazil.
At least the final wasn't totally scoreless. But I didn't think Italy deserved to win it. And certainly not by someone pinching Zidane's nipple to get him upset and booted if that is part of what happened there. That's what the Guardian claimed... American media wouldn't tell us, even if it were obvious in the middle of the replay. They'd probably censor it.
Better luck next time?
