The Goal Witnessed Around The World 2014

By Shaf

What an amazing match!!

The 2014 FIFA world cup comes to an end with Germany as the winner.

You and I both know what the Argentines were doing leading up to the final match…

They were rehearsing.

And rehearsing well…

Rehearsing how they’re going to react to losing 😀

Nah just kidding

These two teams are a power house.

Both teams are extremely dangerous

For much of the FIFA tournament it seemed the Argentines relied heavily on Messi to bring them through.

Meanwhile Germany competing as a team rather than relying on a hero.

For this reason alone it seemed Germany was going to take the world cup.

18K Gold

18K Gold

And win they did.

No matter how hard Argentina prayed for Messi to score that goal it didn’t do a dam thing at winning the cup.

Let this be a lesson kids…one man CAN NOT make a difference…

Because there's only one Jesus

Because not everyone can be Jesus

No hard feelings on either side of the teams though

The nature of the game is a winner and a loser.

Good game guys…good game

Alright…I was routing for Argentina and lost a bet…I’m gona go have 3 Burgers to my face as the loser

Enjoy the awards ceremony
