That's football! Good game and well done to Brazil.

I think Spain made a mistake with no speed/width out wide, Mata & Torres were useless. Navas should have started. Cesar has reminded everybody what a good keeper he is, I think his options have just got bigger, no way will he play in the 2nd level in England...........

Sure but that applies to Brasilians aswell. Their players play for major European clubs, playing with and against the best.

Spains success over the last 5 years can be put down to Barcelonas La Masia. They wouldnt have been so dominant if their core of players who play for Barca and Spain didnt receive the education they got at their La Masia academy.

We could go back to Cruyff and the Dutch influence at Barcelonas academy, but for me their success has been earned by internal forward thinking more than outside influences.

The Maracanã looked absolutely majestic last night.

Atmosphere was incredible too, would've loved to have been there.

Congratulations to Brazil! You played a perfect final, dominating the whole match. You are in my opinion the main candidate to win the World Cup and this is coming from an Argentinian. Hail the champion!

First off congratulations to the fans and the event organizers for pulling off a successful event even while respecting the protests taking place. I hope the citizens and the government can find a proper solution to the grievances and that by this time next year we can all simply focus on the sports.

Secondly, congratulations to the Brasillian side for their fine show. They duly earned the trophy and gained quite the confidence heading into next year's finals.

Spain looked gassed. Mata had so little left for this match and most everyone else looked a step too slow yesterday. As others have suggested I think a couple of the player selections were off, as well.

In watching the replay I don't think it was that one sided. Spain had 4 or 5 solid chances (not included the PK) that either just missed or really tested the keeper. (or Luiz!) Going down 2-0 just before the half was a killer.

...and lots of awareness raised in the protests for social issues and also FIFAs attitude towards host nations.
Would love for this to be true but I fear that's not to be. So long as there is some nation whose leaders are poised to cash in on the appeal for the event then FIFA won't have to change their ways.

I just wanna to remember all the dives Neymar did on the championship but I just can think of hes goals against Japan, Mexico and Spain, what a talent, what a great player! Seeing it live it´s even better, the crowd was the best I´ve seen so far for the Seleção, just amazing!

See you guys here next year, I hope with the same ending result!

I dont think playing against Espanyol, Real Sociedad make anyone better.

You are right about the Champions League, but if all the south americans played here, the Libertadores would have a higher level.

I think it funny how some of europeans always think they have the best of everything.

I heard many times from a few european friends 'Neymar will go to Barcelona, thats awesome, he will play against real defenders and grow up'.

Thats a big joke and does not apply since last 10 years.

Neymar has always played in Santos, a brazilian club, against brazilian defenders, and look what he did in this confederations cup against your 'real defenders'... come on!

Ronaldinho in 2002, i dont think he was in barcelona at that time, and look what he did with a bunch of 'real defenders'...

Brazilian football has improved tatically and defensively.

Im not saying this because of the match yesterday..
Just watch Corinthians vs Chelsea match.. it was a fair match, and Corinthians didnt look inferior at any momment, it was the same team we saw playing here and actually won.

So please, stop this 'play against the best'..

You guys keep buying and buying, but we still have awesome players playing here, not from Brazil just, but also from Argentina, Uruguay and Chile.

Brazilian championish is pretty difficult and has skilled players.

Spain success or other european team's crisis?

Have you seem the way Italy, France and England are playing lately? (and by lately i mean in the last 5~6 years)

It happens to every big team, high and low moments, and what i see TODAY, is that the big teams are in a low moment (yes it includes Brazil, even though we won yesterday, doesnt change the fact its still a young team and must work much harder to get there in 2014.)

I just can't see the Spain from 2010 defeating France in 98, Brazil in 2002, or Italy in 2006.
There's just no way.

Spain lost to USA in 2009, lost to Switzerland during the WorldCup, and had a serious trouble with Paraguay.

EDIT:
In short, what i mean is, if your rivals are weak, you will look strong.

Brazil was strong in attack and also in defense. This title puts us among the candidates for next year, but we will have Germany, Netherlands, Argentina... You guys have Messi don't forget this. A final between Brazil and Argentina would be interesting.

Brazil was 22th in the ranking. Now after the Confeds Cup it is 9th. BUT Brazil will fall again, because until the World Cup, it wont be playing competitive matches, only friendles, which even if you win, are worth less than HALF what a win in a World Cup qualification match (which Brasil doesnt play since its host) is worth.
