The final stages of the World Cup were awesome, but unfortunately Germany’s performance in their Semi-Final against Spain was nowhere up to the level of their previous matches. This saw them heading for their second Third vs Fourth place playoff in as many World Cups. This was great from the point of view that game was here in Port Elizabeth, but heart breaking otherwise as it really looked like this might be their year again. It was however awesome to see them play and win again especially as it turned out to be much more entertaining game than the eventual Spain vs Netherlands final.
Well done to Spain on finally winning a World Cup and also to South Africa for managing, planning and successfully hosting the tournament. It really was a “Once in a lifetime” for all of us here and hopefully it will come back to Africa soon.
