Match Report: Club World Cup Final: Barcelona 4 – 0 Santos
Barcelona are champions of the Club World Cup.
Neymar, who turned Puyol inside out the one time he was one on one with him instead of being mobbed by three or four players at once, is officially vastly overrated, according to Twitter.
Xavi has a better first touch with his back heel than 99% of players have at all. What a fucking waste of talent.
The blaugranas played their game, their way, on their terms. Their pressing worked perfectly, their tiki-taka was seamless. They controlled the tempo effortlessly, you could set your watch by it.
Most of all though, they had fun. Messi and Fabregas, friends since they were kids, got to play around like it was ten years ago. They were visibly giddy.
It made me want to claw my eyes out with cactus needles.
Pep Guardiola must be extremely pleased. Everything went according to plan. I hate it when everything goes according to plan.
