#SoccerSaturdays: A Look Back At World Cup Moments!
Happy Saturday everyone and welcome back for some more #SoccerSaturday content!
While the international break continues ahead for preparations towards the World Cup tournament, I figured to share with you some of my favorite moments in World Cup recent history.
Incredible World Cup Moments!
Brazil vs. Germany: Nightmare in Brazil!
You know how sometimes you hear the saying that an image tells a story? In this case, an image shows a massacre!
Who can possibly forget the 2014 World Cup Semi-Final between Brazil and Germany. The 2014 World Cup hosting country, Brazil would come to Belo Horizonte as the side with the upper hand. Germany on the other hand, knew there was a tall task and a difficult challenge facing a Brazil side at home. However, it took nothing for Germany to show its absolute lethality and deliver an incredible blow at home to Brazil, passing by them with a 7-1 score!
Toni Kroos, Manuel Neuer, Thomas Mueller, and Miroslav Klose combined for the biggest upset ever to Brazil!
Spain vs. Netherlands : South Africa 2010
One of the world’s most physical and demanding finals ever! In my opinion, probably the ugliest physically-wise finals considering how intense both sides were. In terms of technicality, both teams had a lot of high level talent on their rosters. The difference maker was how each side utilized their weaponry and chose to play either the mental game or the cerebral-assassin game. In the end, it would be the Spanish legend, Andres Iniesta to finish things up for Spain. The Spaniards would go and win the World Cup in 2010.
Also, who can possibly forget the soundtrack to that World Cup!
Last… Certainly Not Least Favorite Moment!
Colombia vs. Uruguay: Brazil World Cup 2014
Biased? Sure whatever you want to call it! However, how can anybody forget this absolute screamer of a goal from Colombian international, James Rodriguez?
Did you know that for the 2014 World Cup, James was the leading scorer with 6 goals to his name? Yes, the Colombian sensation would then come out of this World Cup to a huge deal that would put him at Real Madrid under the management of then coach, Carlo Ancelotti. Unfortunately for the Cafeteros, they would be eliminated prior to the semi-final stages by Brazil.
Fortunately, Brazil was then eliminated from the finals as aforementioned. Here’s the real life video of that goal too!
Anyways! Now that I have wiped the drool off my face, thank you so much for tuning in and don’t forget to follow the Yellow Card Podcast for all your soccer content. Find them on @Podcastcard on Twitter.
