Going back to club football after an international tournament is definitely one of the least satisfying things as a football fan.

I was rooting for Croatia but France was better in the end. It was a really entertaining game IMO and also seemed very fair with none of that bitchy stuff I dislike in football.

Yes, it's shitty, but it's part of football now. Everyone dives like crazy. To single him out is pointless. I wish FIFA would do something about it in general though.

My in-laws live in the countryside right over the Croatian border (bordering Slovenia) and I was visiting there this weekend and so many cars were fitted with national flag decals and little flags. After the first goal, the neighbor celebrated with a few strong firecrackers and the whole sparsely populated valley was flooded with cheers (that was interesting to experience). Needless to say, those were the only cheers yesterday. If they had won, my ride back in town would probably look like some Mad Max kind of celebration/survival story.

Disclaimer: I have 0% interest in football and find these obsessive fans very odd, I just don't get it. My wife and I were playing with our dogs and cats the whole time and her father screamed obscenities at the TV a lot after their first goal and could be heard outside the house quite clearly.

Yo that was deserved by France cuz on the whole they were the best team of the tournament. But that wasnít a penalty to call a handball on that in the final is pretty .......lame. Congrats to France hopefully USA will be in next WC ;p

.....and a few thoughts:

- so happy about this as France needed some positivity after those difficult last years and terrorist attacks.
- really glad the French squad showed so much team spirit, it wasn't about 1 or 2 star players. And we also needed to bounce back after the negativity and fiasco of 2010 in South Africa.
- fuck all the racists worldwide....France has been a diverse country for decades and I thought people had understood that since 98...But apparently and unfortunately not. I've seen some outrageous shit in the foreign press. It's to the point my wife discouraged me of wearing a French Jersey when we go to Italy in 2 weeks.
- finally on a personnal note, it was simply epic to watch that final with my 2 sons, 20 years after celebrating that first win in Paris as a young man. It's beyond words, as corny as that sounds.

oh and for those who want to understand France and French football better, this is a good vid:
