The World Cup is an exciting event in general but this year’s tournament is shaping up to be one of the great tournaments in the last decade or so. We have already seen a number of great games and they are only starting to get better. What we have witnessed since the end of the group stages is that there have been some dramatic finishes at the World Cup 2014.
There was a particularly dramatic finish in one of the last group stage games. One of those in particular was the game between Greece and Ivory Coast. Greece were awarded a controversial penalty in the dying seconds of the game. The resulting goal that was converted from the penalty spot ensured that Ivory Coast wouldn’t make it past the group stages.
Now that the tournament is into the second round the dramatic finished have really picked up. Already there have been three games with dramatic finishes and two of them have been decided by a penalty shootout. There was a game recently between the Netherlands and Mexico, where the Dutch scored two goals in the last five minutes of the game to snatch a win against a resilient Mexican side.
The World Cup 2014
has shown us some dramatic finishes so far in the tournament. Now that we are into the knockout stages of the competition there are only going to be more close finishes in each of the games. What it does do is make the World Cup 2014
even more exciting to watch.
