    Hahaha.

    Felt so bad for Messi being given the Golden Ball then. Could see he was devastated and only just holding shit together, then having to go up and have a load of dignitaries go "unlucky m8 lol" and then have to pose for photos - horrible shit.

    They should have set Neuer on him if they wanted results then...

    Should Neuer have been sent off for that knee to Higuian's face? BBC aren't talking about it.

    Not quite in the Harald Schumacher school of fair play. Probably should've got a yellow for the challenge - it was a 50-50 ball, he got to it first, but made sure he was going to poleaxe Higuain by accident.

    Thought it was reckless to be honest, but it'll be forgotten about now. Might have been in the penalty area too.

    I guess the thing is, he got there first, was always going to get there first and so if you're going to try and challenge for it you've got to accept that shit's probably going to get real. He was committed to going for the ball and although he didn't exactly do much to avoid an impact, Higuain was kind of risking something like that happening taking him on for height...

    He should never have been up there accepting the award in the first place!

    For sure. Should've gone to James Rodriguez, Schweinsteiger, Neuer or Mascherano.

    Yeah, I don't think Messi deserved the Golden Ball, wasn't even Argentina's best player. Neuer, Rodriguez or Schweinsteiger would have been my picks.

    Imagine losing the World Cup final then having to hang around so that Sepp Blatter and Dilma can shake your hand. The stuff of nightmares.

    It is never 50/50 with a goal keeper in the air like that. Apart from being way more protected by refs then players, they can punch, kick, head, use any part of their usually 6ft something powerhouse of a body legally. Wrists stronger than most boxers. I saw a player pull out of a '50/50' in the match, I forget who now with the keeper, as he wasn't daft.

    Always funny that the crowds universally booed Blatter when he appeared on the big screens. Reminded me of George Osbourne's medal-giving appearance in London 2012, the crowd turned on him and he looked genuinely hurt.
