The 2018 fifa world cup came and passed. All what's left now are the prominent highlights of the past event. The world cup proved the following to the soccer lovers:
THE EPL IS STILL THE BEST LEAGUE IN THE WORLD.
Looking at the players who made it to the semi finals it's no doubt that the English Premier Legue is the best. If we compare all the leagues that were represented in the world cup,the EPL had a lot of players who are playing or were playing there before moving to other leagues.
THE ROTATION OF PLAYERS SLOWS DOWN THE PERFOMANCE OF THE NATIONAL TEAM.
We've always complained about Bafana Bafana's chop&change and in the world cup the Brazilian defence, German midfield and Spanish attack proved that point to us.
NO AFRICAN TEAM IS READY TO LIFT THE WORLD CUP TROPHY.
Like former Bafana captain (Pienaar) said in 2010, it will take decades to have an African team playing in the final match of a soccer world cup. With so many African players having successful careers in Europe there's still a lot to be done to get the African football on par with the rest of the world.
FOOTBALL IS A GAME OF EMOTIONS AND PASSION.
During the latest soccer world cup, advanced technology was introduced in football where we saw the referees pausing matches to go and confirm on the screens what really happened. Even after the referee has viewed the screen over and over the players that were judged against still couldn't accept the judgement because football is not only about kicking the ball but there's a lot inside a player's mind and heart.
YOU DON'T NEED A WORLD CUP MEDAL TO BE THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD.
Ronald and Messi were both knocked out of the world cup and none of them got even bronze but they are still the most talked about players whenever we argue on who's the best in the world.
