I'm glad that Spain won too, they looked like they always wanted to win the games they played - and with flair.
I enjoyed the World Cup very much, as a whole, but the amount of play-acting and 'gamesmanship' was lamentable.
I don't want to see players trying to pressurise the referee to get players booked / sent off, or lots of rolling around on the floor after a tackle
then getting up again once the ref was looking the other way. As well as the usual cynical fouling.
I'm not a great sports fan, but this event is a one off and even though there's a lot of it that is very 'corporate', I believe its for the 'people'
Who'd have thought that a psychic Octopus would play such a part in it all ?
