Well apart from Messi and Ronaldo ruling the last 10 years. The last decade we have had Ronaldo (Brazilian), Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Buffon. To name a few! I kinda see where you're coming from. However I don't think in history a player has dominated 15+ Years as well as Messi and Ronaldo and continue to be on top of their game!
Don't get me wrong I've enjoyed it but I can remember watching Pale etc so for me and I think football in general has lost so much. You don't see players really do thier thing anymore it's to tactical. They train the skill out of youngsters.
Colombia, last word cup were very strong. Sweden, had up until today, a very strong defence. Tunisia are the best African side on paper. There has been a lot of bigger teams knocked out to smaller teams. Wales, when they got to the semi finals of the Euros beat Slovakia,Russia.Nothern Ireland and the big shock was Belgium, so you could say the same for their run in. England have been decent. I think they’ve dominated every game all but the Belgium game where they couldn’t care less. This World Cup has been one of the best in my opinion. So many shocks it’s great to see teams in the knockout stages that aren’t normally there. Everyone is entitled to their opinion though (worldcup)
Got to agree to some extent but cup final no that was against Portugal. As I'm sure you will agree England not been great in a poor group and v Columbia Sweden in a overall poor world cup. It's been dramatic at times but overall good cure for insomnia. Particularly two of the France games. But you got though it's the pundits that do my head in my mates a palace fan even he agrees.
The England game meant a lot more to you. In fact, that was your cup final. You then proceeded to lose to the worse England side ever. (worldcup)
