Portuguese theatricals come to an end

Some justice in the world, after a another night of phony injuries and diving at last we have seen the Portuguese lose and they are now out of the World Cup. The match tonight was not the most action packed and nothing at all like last night's classic. I am glad though to see France in the final and they deserve their win. Big Phil at the end was clearly very irate at the referee, no doubt down to the ref not falling for all their tricks.

Who will win the World Cup?

Well I would never have predicted a France V Italy final, but if I had to make a prediction, I would have to plump for Italy. They have that extra edge over France. However, with it being the last hurrah for many of the French team they could very well come out on top. A few weeks ago, both teams were playing dire; both have hit form and at the right time.

Portugal is disgraceful. Obviously they cannot be trusted in any sphere. How can we do business with such people. We should throw them out of the European Union.

Italy will beat France. Italy had an easy ride to the finals and France peaked too late, and cheating Portugal denied England the chance. What a situation? Who will get the fair play award. I say give it to South Korea of to Japan. They are not yet infected with this disgraceful disease of the cheat and the hollow victory syndrome.
