I had two teams left in the World Cup. – And they are both in the final! Fabulous display of technique, passing and football artistry by the Spanish against a solid defence. Their technical skill is so strong they confidently pass the ball to a team mate who is quite closely covered knowing he will control it quickly and pass it on. It allows them to play in a way most teams cannot.
So, my 4 teams England, New Zealand, Netherlands, Spain. 2 in the final, 1 undefeated but out (New Zealand), and the only disappointment, England’s performance.
The final should be great, but these things often don’t work out when it is so important. And who will I want, and expect to win- Netherlands.
