I'm really suprised at having to think pretty long about where the previous WC was held, and who won. I've managed to remember were it was held, but not quite sure who won, although it was probably brazil.

Brazil beat Germany in the final.

No-one knows how the Germans got to the final because they were rubbish.

You can't remember because all the games were in the morning and you had to get up before work to watch them.

Funko
08-06-2006, 16:27:37
And, of course, the Dutch didn't qualify.

Football is a game of two halfs. Then the Germans win (or come second)

I can only remember back to 1986. In general. I don't remember anything that happened before 1986.

They are running some pretty funny comercials for it here, they have one that says the WC haulted a civil war in Africa because the nation qualified.

ESPN did a story that showed uber racist guys in Italy chanting 'monkey' and throwing Bananas at some black player, while in another story the Spainish coach is recorded saying to 'get the darkie.'

Can't remember.

But the comercial is pretty funny, they show guys shooting, then U2 comes on, they start kicking a ball and its off to the FIFA WC!
