No News from the sidelines today, just pictures.
The champions! A lot of events for the history books. Rakavic scored the fastest goal in a CL match
Buffon kept his side in the game. Juventus had an unsettled first fifteen minutes
Juventus protest Neymar's goal saying that it was a handball, Neymar's goal got disallowed
Suarez was a menace all night, he had at least three attempts at goal before breaking through
See what I mean? Suarez was a live grenade and Buffon would throw himself on it
Pogba suffered from performance issues. There, there, it happens to everyone?
Gif of the first goal of the match. Rakavich or whatever got first blood. That midfielder though
Morata got the only goal on the sheet for Juventus. Well... progress, at least he celebrated this one, instead of turning away dramatically while his teammates celebrate hysterically
Messi didn't get a goal on the sheet, but that doesn't mean that he wasn't present. Assisted Neymar's last goal, dragged defenders with him, dat positional play doe
Wasn't Pirlo's best match in a shirt, tbh.
Pogba hugs it out
The personification of the English expression 'gutted'
Statesmen of the game having a hug and a natter
I don't know what was said, O lipreaders
Smile though your heart is breaking... you just SMILE
Morata got the only goal for his side. I thought that Juventus would have parked the bus with an eye for penalties, to be honest
Suarez had to come off the field because he was injured. LFC supporters were sobbing in my TL last night. Looking at Suarez, and Mascherano (sp), it was a sad night
Suárez's face after he got his goal. He was searching for it, rousting Juventus for one, they weren't going to deny him
At the end of the match, the Barcelona team held a guard of honour for Juventus as they formed a queue to collect their medals
Last photo of Pirlo crying, promise
They didn't do their 'turn up for what' jump
In every match there's a winner and a loser
On the other side of the coin with despair is joy- ecstatic, overwhelming, coursing through your body- obliterating everything else- joy! Neymar's 100 jesus
Messi holding his trophy and showing off his ugly tattoo
This is how you go gently into the good night. A treble, nothing but winnings with good teammates and a good coach. Not every team can be Barcelona, though
Alves continued to dive towards the end of the match. Half the time I was like, "Really?"
Xavi's last match as captain of Barcelona
This happened with Suarez's goal. Enrique was like, turnt up
Never mind the fact that Neymar is being sued for tax dodging (render unto Caesar which is Caesar's, no?), the orgies that his Christian father allegedly ordered and got and all the noise around him, you have to admit that Neymar has only blossomed as a player. He got a goal disallowed and it didn't throw him off, he didn't obsess over it, just focused on what he needed to do, and got the third goal for his team, totally tying up the match with a bow
Neymar seems to be a guy like this. He's able to put emotion to the side, get the job DONE, and then only then, he focuses on it, lets it wash over him and allows himself to break
Neymar and David
Just Barcelona's match. It was written
The winningest trio in Spanish history - and none are Spanish!
Twitter Pique: “My Argentine companion in battle, the soul of the team and the three fucking geniuses. Veni, vidi, vici.”
After all this, Enrique might leave. Welp
Women's World Cup
The matches are on too late for the likes of me to stay up, unfortunately (GMT). But here are some gifs
End of the opening ceremony
I really can't believe that Canada couldn't spare the money for grass on the turf. Or FIFA fighting against women wanting to play on GRASS. The hell, Blatter?
Netherlands entered their first World Cup and won their first game.
For the first time in WWC history there are 24 teams
Canada and China first match
The cup has a mascot. I don't know her name
The turf hurts my feelings.
China's goalie beaten by penalty!
OP done! No news today because d'uh! Any cheers, jeers, corrections or commentary pushback, you know the drill. I'll be watching England vs Ireland today, and hope that there are no IRA chants or the like
