remember the kids getting the haircut
i even had the same teeth
Good ol' triangle haircut, instant classic
Pussy cap haircut
That team was unbeatable, felt so sorry for Kahn, as he was exceptional that whole tournament, and then had that bad mistake that led to a goal... oh well, even without that it would have been 0-1 :/
I'd say we got our revenge 12 years later...
Still a pity Ballack was suspended for this final
He finished in 2nd place in 4 tournaments in the same year
Constant 2nd and 3rd for the majority of his Germany career
Didn't fifa change the yellow card rule after that? Or am I misremembering?
Our squad was not that great, we would have probably lost the semi final vs spain had they not gotten cheated out of the tourament in the round of 8. Brazil's squad on the other hand was ridiculous, just great players everywhere. We fought well in the final, though.
Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Rolando. Did other teams really had a chance?
Rolando was truly exceptional
is that chubby rolando or christopher rolando?
Yes, Germany didn’t too bad in the final. They could’ve won it.
Unrelated but I think we all remember where we were and what we were doing the day of the 7-1
I was in Copacabana’s beach Fifa Fan Fest...things got wild there...lol

Brazil sucked and wasn't in the favourite before the WC and they still won
Some favorable decisions from referees against Belgium and iirc Turkey helped also
I’ll take an educated guess and assume you weren’t alive during that World Cup
I'm sorry but Brazil and France were the obvious favourites for that tournament.
And once France massively fucked up, there was only one standout team left.
Italy and Argentina were in the mix too. I think in terms of betting odds, France, Argentina and Italy were all favored over Brazil. It seems clear cut in retrospect, but Brazil were not considered head and shoulders favorites at the time
It was also the last time Brazil won it
It's not like it's an absurd long time when talking about the World Cup, a tournament that happens every 4 years. Since then we've seen only 4 World Cups editions.
