The More Things Change...

So Argentina are out, and we are left with 5 European teams and Brasil. That seems appropriate, since every one of the 9 World Cups held in Europe has been won by a European team. Except one.

Care to guess who that was?

As Chilavert hilariously says every 38 seconds on Univision, "Si Si". Brasil beat hosts Sweden in 1958 to win their first World Cup and be the exception that proves every rule.

Not alot of wacky upsets and cinderella stories this time around; instead things are very much as they have always been. Certainly not a bad thing, but interesting for sure.
