Soccer vs Football

All things done and said, Brazil’s defeat against Germany attracted too many unsolicited reactions.
Suddenly many so called Brazil fans also switched loyalty to Germany. For them now Germany is a better ‘team’ and they should win the world cup. Also I must say that some of the funny quotes /pictures doing rounds in the Internet are really hilarious.
But you can not discard decades of entertainment and excitement Brazilian football stars have provided just based on their one bad day at play!. Probably stars were not in their favor on that fateful day.(with few stars even missing!- Neymar, Silva)
Brazil caught the imagination of the world , which also includes fish loving bespectacled race simply by virtue of their magical touch with the ball. They taught how to romance with the ball (no pun intended).
All the slicing and dicing of match statistics would tell you that Germany were far better team in the match. Game plan, strategy, mental strength, physical strength , co-orndination, ball possession  blah blah ..Germany gets thumbs up for everything. Probably this is the reason why Germany has been so consistent over the years.
But is not sports about those few moments when sportsperson transcends human boundaries and creates magic with his/her creativilty?..display skills which we thought was never possible?.. Brazilians player have been doing that for all these years to keep the game ‘beautiful’. Let not one effing match take that from them.


Disclaimer: I am not a avid football fan. Just a passing though. As a matter of fact I don’t like any sports that involve too much of physical contact :-/
