Götterdämmerung – on the TV
Today is the final day for Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar – but only on the TV. The world is watching at 17 o’clock in the final against France against Croatia. And after the final whistle Germany is finally ex-world champion. The Katzorakel has already decided for Croatia. But maybe the experimental setup was not quite fair either.

Charles de Goal
France wants its second star – but messed up yesterday’s dress rehearsal on National Day. If the Tricolore is again properly sorted today, can Antoine Griezmann to finally become the new Charles de Goal – and wonder boy Kylian Mbappé at 19 years to the world champion.

His name is Luka
Croatia relies on motivation, character, self-confidence – and on its superstar Luka Modrićwho could become the first player to win the Champions League, World Cup and Golden Ball as Footballer of the Year in a single year.

Less exciting yesterday was the match for third place, which Belgium won 2-0 against England. Belgium is one lap further (at least football newcomers). There is not much left of this game, except: Marouane Fellaini had the moths, and Eden hazard After that, I had a burger. It did not become much more nutritious in a superfluous game.
My wife grad: “Belgium is further”
For that I love her #BELENG

He is not here anymore
The Queen Did not look football, but looked fearfully out of the palace window: Is he finally gone? Yes, ma’am, HE was playing golf in Scotland. England is finally at home and has lost even more World Cup games than Germany. Precious expert Gary Lineker collected with an ironic “Southgate out! “16,000 likes and while Donald Trump is gone is Nigel Farage somehow still there. He should now at least know that Belgium is a nation. Even a third-placed nation.

Three defeats in seven games are enough for fourth place. Sovereign.

We are Tennis World Champions – in WMBLDN
For the time being we can not play soccer, but we can play tennis. And Mats Hummels finally had (finally!) his first sense of achievement this summer. The thumb pushing for Angelique Kerber in Wimbledon was worth it. Or like it Bierhoff would call: WMBLDN.

Please cheer properly, with selfie!
Important tip for today’s World Cup final: When cheering always necessarily film or photograph yourself, and then tweet everything or instagramm. Otherwise it does not count!
This chap sat in #ENG #COL game is now the modern fan. It’s not enough to be there. He was primed to film his own reaction to #ENG winning so that he could then share it. Natural reaction / manufactured? Everyone is a participant now. pic.twitter.com/5jggY3seNh

World Cup final 2022
And another good advice from LEAD: Enjoy the last World Cup final with open air watching in heat and sunshine! The final of the Qatar World Cup in four (one-half) years is almost Christmas. 🤯😱💔
Easy for those who have not got it yet. The World Cup final in four years is on the 18th of December. So one week before Christmas in 2022. With public viewing at the Glühweinstand. #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/oCHgulNsvc
