Just days after Brazil suffered the biggest loss in World Cup semi- final history, their main rivals Argentina made it into the World Cup final! The Brazil we’re used to watching are a legendary footballing nation, with a glorious history when it comes to the World Cup. The South American rivalry between Argentina and Brazil is always there, but what could be worse than losing 7-1 to Germany…yup, Arentina winning the Cup in your own back garden.
Would I like Argentina to win the World Cup, not particularly, would I like Germany too…not at all…irrespective of whether they’re a European representative or not. The thought of seeing arguably the greatest footballer of all time (Lionel Messi) lift the World Cup whilst in his prime is a mouth watering prospect, albeit one that Brazil would prefer not to see!
