The unthinkable happens ...

No one is infallible.
The champions were vanquished as if benumbed under some spell of that wizard Zidane and the blistering speed of Henry or were they haunted by memories of 1998 finals ? They were no match, not able to come-back after they went down 1-0 in the 57th minute. I went back to sleep in absolute silence after the match.
The South Americans now with the exit of both Argentina and Brazil must be in deep mourning - I expected these two to meet in the finals.
Current mood: Slightly dazed.

  1. Yeah..Brazil seemed very dull.Ronaldo was useless, Ronaldinho was as usual good, but no good supporters for him..I felt french players were much quicker than Brazil. On the other hand, Portugal beat England in penalty shootouts. This world cups getting interesting with top teams Argentina, England and Brazil out.
