Oops... Brazil Don't Win The World Cup After All!

Guess the "Powers That Be" could only carry Brazil so far. One of the most sensational international football matches of all time. Germany were as devastating as Brazil were abject.

I remember reading Adam Nicolson's excellent book, Men Of Honour, about the Battle of Trafalgar in which he attributes the Spanish fleet's capitulation to old-school Catholic fatalism. There was something about that last night — Neymar relics and all. The minute the magic was disproved by science, the world fell apart. A Football Reformation.
