Greatest World Cup Soccer Ever!

Winning goal

Yesterday was the conclusion of the greatest Work Cup Soccer tournament ever. German striker Mario Goetze scored the winning goal in overtime, breaking a zero zero tie.

“The play that made the difference happened in the blink of the eye, with Andre Schuerrle making a long run up the left wing, whipping a cross into the box where Goetze, a second-half substitute, chested the ball down, then volleyed it into the netting at the far side.” (Chicago Tribune)

Argentina had some scoring chances, but the German team dominated as a team. Argentina relied too much on their star Mesi who did not have good came.

All those in the know understood the significance of a very White, very German team becoming the first European champion of a World Cup hosted in Latin America. Others noted that this German Argentine final might as well have been hosted by Juan and Eva Peron. Our favorite leader Vladimir Putin was in attendance.

The last two World Cup championships and the last two European Cup championships have been won by the Whitest teams.

    I just assumed the German team was infested with Africans like every other team. It’s good to hear Germany is represented by actual Germans. It’s fantastic to hear they defeated the mongrel band!

    Deutchland Uber Alles!

    The German team in the WC four years ago had a disturbingly high number of non-whites. I’m glad to see this version has a lot more truth in advertising.

    I still don’t think the whole country of Brazil knows what hit it. This was the soccer equivalent of Brat beating Cantor. That said, I bet there are editorials this morning in the sports pages of Brazilian ‘papers saying that this was just a one-off, that immigration had nothing to do with it, that the Brazilian team forgot its constituents…oops, I’m getting my wires crossed.

    And also…

    The real loser was actually Nate Silver. To use the overused cliche, that’s why they play the games.

    Actually, no, scratch that. The real schmuck is me, for taking everything I read on 538 as gospel truth. Now I wonder if I haven’t screwed my own pooch. I’ve even relied on 538 for some of the stuff I do for a living lately.

    Actual ethnic/racial makeup of the German team:

    17 Germans
    2 part-Germans born in Poland (Klose and Podolski)
    1 Albanian (Mustafi)
    1 Turk (Özil)
    1 half-German, half-Arab (Khedira)
    1 half-German mulatto (Boateng)

    So that’s 20 white Europeans on a 23-man roster, or 87%. Which is pretty close to Germany’s demographics as a whole (about 90% white).

    It’s hard to overstate the complete and total humiliation inflicted on Brazil by Germany yesterday. Brazil hadn’t lost a competitive game at home since 1975, over 60 matches total. Until now. Brazil had been the gold standard in international soccer (with a record 5 World Cup victories) for at least the past half-century. Until now.

    Losing 7-1 in soccer is like losing 128-14 in football; it’s beyond a rout. It was Brazil’s most lopsided defeat ever. And the Germans could have easily scored 10 or more goals, but after going up 5-0 after 30 minutes they seemed to take pity on the poor slobs and slowed things down.

    After Germany scored 4 goals in 6 minutes (!) the cameras starting panning on Brazilian fans in the stands openly crying their eyes out. How I laughed and laughed. And then laughed some more. “Schadenfreude” is a German concept after all. :)

    The Brazilians have a partial excuse in that their star player Neymar was out with injuries and their captain Thiago Silva was suspended for the game. Without the former Brazil’s offence was totally listless, and without the latter their defence completely fell apart.

    But full credit has to go to the Germans, who ruthlessly exploited Brazil’s mistakes with typical Germanic efficiency. Interestingly, the German team has no superstars like Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar. They’re all just very good players who function together like a well-oiled machine. Das Machine ™.

    Of course anything could happen in Sunday’s final, but it’s pretty hard to imagine anyone beating a German team this good. Yesterday’s drubbing of Brazil was like a watershed moment, announcing to the world that the long era of Brazilian dominance of soccer is now over and that the Germans are now unquestionably the best, head and shoulders above the rest.

    We shall see.

    Very happy to see Germany on the rise. I’d rather be occupied and speak German or Russian, than speak English and carry on with this Jewish-run bastardized monstrosity that used to be the USA.

    Hunter Wallace has cleaned up my post a bit,a bit too much.

    It’s Brazil! What’s wrong with some straight White German guys getting some female attention, appreciation?!

    So it’s going to be Argentina vs Germany in the final. This will be the third final between these two teams with Argentina winning in ’86 and Germany in ’90.
    To get an idea of just how concentrated power is in the world of soccer, let’s divide the planet’s 222 national soccer federations into two very unequal halves. Brazil, Italy, Germany and Argentina make up one half, we’ll call them the Big Four, and all 218 other nations make up the other half, call ‘em the Little 218.
    Why should only 4 nations earn the sobriquet ‘Big’ while 218 nations are classified as ‘Little’? Because in 20 World Cups, at least one Big Four team has made the finals 19 times (95%), two Big Four teams have faced each other in the finals 7 times (35%), and Big Four teams have won the WC (including this year) 15 times (75%).
    Conversely, at least one Little 218 team has made the finals only 13 times (65%), two Little 218 teams have faced each other in the finals only once (5%), and Little 218 teams have won the WC only 5 times (25%).
    Soccer is by far the world’s most popular team sport, widely played in every country and territory on Earth. Yet from the World Cup’s inception in 1930 right up to today, just four nations (with only 5% of the world’s population) have completely dominated the sport, while the other 218 have been pretty well relegated to also-ran status.
    Why this is so is a good question that I don’t have an answer to. Maybe they should split future World Cups into two separate tournaments: a real world championship contested by the only four nations that really matter, and a Best of the Rest tourney that the other 218 countries actually have a chance of winning.

    I was so happy to see Germany defeat the USA.
    When USA was finally done, I didn’t really care what happened, but it is nice to see Germany continue.
