Brazil v Croatia

I actually watched a football match last night. All the way through.

I think this was the first time since 1966.

It was dull. The Brazilians played like butterflies and the Croatians played like breeze blocks. 

I was hoping to be entranced by the magical footballing skills I've heard so much about. The one goal was pretty amazing, but one goal in 90 minutes? That's a very high ratio of bread to butter.

Mainly the Brazilians tootled about in midfield. Yes, very pretty. Flicking the ball around like street entertainers.

And  the clodhopping Croatians were the ones to watch. They played with heart. They just couldn't get the ball past the Brazilian goalie.
