For the second time in two days, a World Cup game goes to Penalty Kicks. It’s an unfortunate way to decide a game, but man, is it a nail-biter. Thanks to an incredible performance by the Portuguese keeper England is denied their chance at the title. They’re going home. And Portugal is moving on.
If Brazil wins today, we’re gonna see an interesting and highly symbolic match-up between the Mother Country and its upstart colony.
The World Cup continues to fascinate me.
