Uruguay subs haven't helped their ability to counter. Rodríguez, Stuani and Carlos Sánchez all slow. Slower than the players they replaced. There's a third for Uruguay on the break, but won't get there with these guys + Suárez refusing to move away from the halfway line

Portugal manager has to be regretting putting this Fernandes fella on, jesus wept :D

 

Generally a weird substitution. Don't they have any strikers left on the bench?

Godin's doing a Cannovaro 2006.

Golden ball winner there. Has been immense in every game. 

No way they give it to a defender. It'll be whichever finalist has the highest scorer probably :thdn:

Yeah, he's been great considering he's more of a wide midfielder or wingback. Never played fullback at this level.

Who does he play for? Can't say I've ever heard his name before the WC.

Very good player by the looks of it though.

I wonder if Ronaldo might consider retiring from international football after this.

Of course he won't ffs. He plays for personal records. He wants to be the top scorer in international football

Ahh, thanks. 

Leaving as in being sold, or becoming a FA?

Sold. He's said he wants to leave, so Genoa either sell or keep a player who doesn't want to be there

Haha! 

Not a big fan of Neymar as an individual then? 

No, I am not, he is a superb player when he wants and we haven't had a player as talented as Neymar in a long time (I think he is more talented than the Ronaldos, Romário, etc) but he is too much of a modern kind of star off the pitch and too selfish on the pitch.

Best team won but I feel a bit tight on Portugal.  Feel it could of been a pen from Godin in the 85th minute.  Just barges the player over but "there isn't enough in it"?  Oh and that was a foul where Ronaldo got booked for complaining as well.

Uruguay are bloody good at the back though, I gotta say.

Alright, with two supposed GOATs out of the way, we can enjoy the World Cup from now on. No more one-man teams.

Still got Harry Kane FC left.

Cannavaro did win the Ballon'd'Or that year, but IIRC Zidane got the Golden Ball of the tournament. The player is chosen before the final, so that's why Zizou won :D 

 

Similar thing happened in 2002, where Ronaldo won the Ballon'd'Or that year, but it was Kahn who won the Golden ball of the tournament

I'm not sure about better than R9 Ronaldo! Greatest striker of all time for me.

What? More talented than Ronaldo? Blasphemy.

Hardly one man teams when both of them were terrible.

Well, I didn't say those one-man teams worked out. :D

Neymar is a much more complete player, better technique too, but also is a bigger idiot...
