“Muito Obrigado, Brazil”

Colombian student Juan Pablo Ramírez blogs his opinions, mainly about football and politics. He shared his farewell to 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, and called it “the best 21st century World Cup”, because of the many records broken and the many surprises this tournament brought. Like Colombia qualifying to quarter finals for the first time ever, Germany hammering Brazil on semifinals (the semifinal with the most goals ever) and mucha more.

En fin, el que terminó ayer fue un gran Campeonato del Mundo, lleno de emociones y sorpresas, el cual deja muy alto el listón para Rusia 2018 que es lo que viene, y para el que lo único que queda por decir es muito obrigado, Brasil.

Anyway, the World Cup that ended yesterday was a great World Cup, full of excitement and surprises, that sets the bar high for Russia 2018, which comes next, and the only thing that's left for us to say is muito obrigado, Brazil.

The author also writes about Lionel Messi being awarded with the FIFA Ballon d'Or that he, as many other people, considered unfair, comparing it to James Rodríguez as the highest scorer.
