World Cup 2014: Day 7 Highlights

It’s been a week since the World Cup began and today on the seventh day it is in full swing. Spain lost out to Chile and Holland defeated Australia. And Croatia finished off what was left of Cameroon

These three matches made the teams face off in full force with all the tools they had at their disposal. The kicks and parries and dodges played their part in the game of skill and physical wits. 

The fact that people had to expect the unexpected showed up in the form of Cameroon and Australia heading home with their heads hung in depression. They had been given the boot from the tournament due to unassailable opponents who were invincible in their delivery. 

As for Spain, it went down faster than you can say “what was that!?” It was like Italy which had suffered a bad day four years ago. Then the French loss of victory was another upsetting factor. 

The experts and pundits put their heads together to figure out why Spain lost big time this time around. It seemed like a conundrum alright, and that too one whose answer was unknowable in the same manner as those existential questions.

It appears to be the case that the European players were tired of practicing the game on and off and needed a little refreshment or rest before they got their freak on. 

The level of expectation kept from each player in Spain is simply mindboggling in its intensity. That may have played a part in creating a stressful collective state of mind for the entire team. And so the fear of failure became a self-fulfilling prophecy.

However, unlike Spain, Australia is proud of its achievement even though it faced defeat towards the end. That is because it came very close to being a winner. The Aussies can at least say this much that they tried damn hard to trump their opponents. If they failed, it was not for loss of having tried.
