Well there’s 63 games played and only one left to go. One team will collect it’s first ever World Cup, sending one of the two football mad countries into delirium and making National Heroes out of 23 players.
The National Team Rankings have been updated. They can be found here.
And here’s the basics for the final game.
Team Goals CHAMP% Spain 1.1 56.27% Netherlands 0.9 43.73%
Spain favored but the Dutch certainly have a fighting chance.
Rather than pontificate now, I’ll wait until the final game is over to start reviewing things.
It’s amazing that by this time tomorrow, all of these probabilities I’ve been running will now be either 0% or 100%.
But then 2014 is not that far away, and I think maybe I’ll take a stab at the Euros as well. Maybe even look at some club action for the first time. We’ll see.
