My World Cup memories

Fine football
After an almost forgettable start (I draw your attention to goalless draw between France and Uruguay) and a wobble in the middle (when Brazil and Portugal also played out a 0-0 draw), the football on offer has been great to watch.
England were garbage, the empty seats have been frustrating for the locals and embarrassing for Fifa but the Ghana against Uruguay game will go down as one of THE World Cup moments.
The way the whole of Africa got behind the Black Stars was wonderful and the incident involving ‘volleyball legend’ Luis Suarez produced perhaps the most significant ‘last kick of the game’ in the history of football.

That penalty could have sealed a man’s legacy, a country’s destiny and a continent’s history but sadly Asamoah Gyan hit the bar and Ghana went out on penalties.
Huge shame.
