Brazil's World Cup has left many anecdotes and stories, joys and disappointments. Precisely, the latter want to talk about football in Colgados. Players, teams and coaches who have not met the expectations that had been placed on them. Then, I have five points which are for us, the great disappointments of the World Cup in Brazil 2014.
The hosts were definitely the maximum candidate for the title tradition, history and playing at home. With a team riddled with shortcomings especially in the frontcourt, Brazilian left many doubts from the first match in which they beat Croatia thanks to a rather partial arbitration in favor of local. After, fortune saved them from being eliminated in the second round against Chile where if the shot Pinilla, Chilean player, He had entered instead of hitting the crossbar in the last minute of extra time, the story would have been different.
The win against Colombia, another arbitration Velasco Carballo home led them to the semifinals where Brazilians received corrective largest in its history to embedding a strong 1-7 to Germany. The consolation match did not fare very well either and the Netherlands endorsed them another serious corrective to the beat by 0-3. After the fiasco presumed major changes in the Brazilian national team.
2-Spain, England, Italy and Portugal
Germany was the first European champion in an American World Cup but the role of European teams was not the best that could be expected but tell that to these four major European teams. The Spanish, They are arriving as champions of the World Brazil, They made the most regrettable role in Spanish history in a World Cup as being the worst in its history 14 World who have played.
Goleados Holland and surpassed by Chile, they could only win Australia and were eliminated in the first round of the tournament. Ditto for English, Italian and Portuguese whose role was the same as that of Spain, home to the first exchange. Italians succumbed to Costa Rica to equal the English while Portugal Cristiano had a discrete step due mainly to the win in the first game against Germany which ultimately cost them the elimination.
3- Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez
Other great players have not given up to the level expected of them in Brazil 2014 but the level of these 3, in the World Top, did expect much more from them. Messi was named best of the tournament in an award that even he can believe, let not the same FIFA believes it has therefore not included in the 11 ideal and has given the award for the best player. The Argentine was not nearly the best of the tournament and his appointment by an increasingly less credible FIFA it seems to respond more extrasport issues than shown by the sun on the lawn. Accustomed to see a guy from another planet, Messi, He takes the last year and a half far below their level and at the World Cup despite a good start in the first phase, They have been waiting their magic on the biggest games especially in the semifinal and the final where he finished missing and wandering through the countryside.
Christian with 29 years played possibly be his last World Cup and went through it with more pain than glory. He stressed more by the amount of hair that looked to by goals scored. He left his third World Cup with just one goal and as in the other two with more pain than glory losing his chance to make it big in the place where you spend forever Olympus of football, a Global.
Luis Suarez lost his head. His bite Chiellini is as absurd as unnecessary. Italian is not a saint, It is a hard and tough guy but the bite of Suarez had no reason especially when enrollment had already taken for being a repeat offender in this type of action. It was the third time that the Uruguayan had bitten someone and paid dearly with a hard sanction that will lead to many problems for four months. Of course, Uruguay paid very expensive their absence and was eliminated in the second round to not being able with the player himself had qualified them for the next round.
4-FIFA and the organization of the Mundial
FIFA Blatter loses forced marches credit. arbitrations nefarious, Permissive before chilling and all entries by order of the governing body of world football, with instructions to referees to take a few cards or the controversial appointment of the Gold Glove and above the Golden Ball players sponsored by a sports equipment giant casually sponsors two players winning the award and a lousy organization, They leaving very touched the credibility of the agency that runs an Blatter in the eye of the hurricane.
5-The worst level of the Asian and African football
World confirmed that in Asia and Africa play another football. None of the Asian teams managed to win a match. neither Iran, neither Japan nor South Korea and Australia that despite belonging to Oceania participated as a team in Asia, They managed to win one game. The Africans did not fare much better and only Algeria saved the pride making a world far above what was expected of them. Nigeria reached the second round but more loose level of your group on merit while Ghana, Cameroon and Ivory Coast did not go beyond the first round.
