Did I not tell you in my last bet of the week that Germany were going to win the 2014 World Cup! The image on the right shows you my bet365 results for the 2014 World Cup wager. You may want to compare that bet365 results with the image on that post. You may notice that even though Germany won the 2014 World Cup I didn’t win anything. It actually turned out to be a losing bet. WTF!
I actually wasn’t surprised because the same thing happened when I placed a bet with Sportingbet. I wrote about it in the post, When A Win Is Not A win. The problem is even though they won they didn’t do it the allotted 90 minutes. They only won after the game went into extra time. Apparently, that does not count. So, that’s 5 bucks down the drain, but then that’s the way things roll in the betting world right.
You may have noticed that even though I got all the other bets wrong those lovely guys at bet365 returned my wagers back. I’m not sure why, but I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouse. I’m more than happy to take it.
I did do a bit of research though and I did manage to find the following.
World Cup Final News
So, that was my bet365 result for last weeks bet of the week. it’s now time to have a look at what some of the news services have to say about the 2014 World Cup Final.
News.com.au has some brilliant photos. They talk about Messi being named this World Cups best player while German Manuel Neuer was named the tournament’s best goalkeeper! and was given the Golden Glove.
I thought that Fox News Latino World Cup Final article was pretty good. But then you kind of expect that from the guys at Fox News. If you didn’t get to actually see the World Cup final you’ll find that the Fox News narrative very informative. I especially liked the way they described the winning goal.

Gotze brought the ball down with his chest, and, as he was falling, drilled the ball into the far end of the goal with his left.
One of the prettiest goals you will ever see, on the biggest stage imaginable.[/contentbox]
Just to finish off, I managed to find some Germany vs Argentina 2014 World Cup Final video.
