FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL 2014, GERMANY TAKES THE CUP AWAY!
Icheoku says what a 'thriller in Manila' it was, except it was in Rio de Janerio, Brazil and not the Philippines. The FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 finals, between Germany and Argentina, really lived up to its billings. The two teams that worked very hard throughout the tournament and therefore eminently merited their berth in the finals, gave a very good account of themselves. What a final it was that went full ninety minutes and into extra time of thirty minutes; with the first fifteen minutes gone and the other fifteen minutes gone eight minutes, before German's Mario Goetze put a stop to the cliff hanger of a match with a spectacular goal, thus giving Germany their well deserved 1-0 victory over Argentina.
Icheoku says although our projected winner Netherlands was eased out of playing in the finals, the German win result is equally an acceptable alternative. With the World Cup now gone back to Europe, Germany being their representative, Icheoku hopes that Russia 2018 would be a good opportunity for all those who did not excel this time to prove they are equally as good. Icheoku congratulates Germany for winning the cup and also Argentina for playing so wonderfully well against Germany, unlike the host Brazil that was turned inside out by the eventual winner Germany. Icheoku says FIFA, and Brazil in particular, deserves commendation for hosting a stellar world cup tournament despite the initial doubts as to their readiness and ability to deliver a good world cup outing. Overall it was a good FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 event and everyone that pulled together to make it the beautiful event it turned out to be deserves a pat on the back. It was also a World Cup event that showcased names like Hulk which appositely fits the incredibly huge Brazilian guy that bears the name and Havoc which also fits the Netherlander that goes by that name. Until Russia 2018, Icheoku says adios amigos, so long!
