Not always the best team win and you can always expect the unexpected, that’s why Football is so exciting and is the most appreciated sport in the world. Holland has just been eliminated by Russia, who played a lot better and deserved it. Holland was the only team which had a 100% efficiency and was clearly the best team in the cup so far. Apparently this wasn’t enough and Russia totally annulled the Dutch team.
Portugal is also out, even though they played better than Germany. The German efficiency beat Portugal offensive style, which was beautiful to watch. Tomorrow we have another similar game from the two already mentioned here. Spain that plays beautifully against Italy, who isn’t ashamed at all of playing ugly defensive football. And if I had to bet, I’d put my money on Italy. For the good of football, I hope I’m wrong!
