Was the World Cup good for Chelsea?

So how have the Premiership clubs fared in this World Cup? Well, it has been a good one for Arsenal with three of their stars in the winning German squad, and several others (Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain) reduced to a bit part roles which in theory means they will be nice and fresh for next season. It hasn’t been so great for …

Apparently last night wasn’t a great one for Brazilian football, a fact that has not escaped Sony, one of the event’s main sponsors.

Is the penalty shootout a fair way to end a football match?

So far this World Cup we have seen 2 penalty shootouts to decide who progresses to the Quarter Finals.
