As I am watching the FIFA World Cup 2018, I have taken notice of a few things. Number one, European clubs dominated the rest of the world badly. Especially the Latin American clubs where the rivalry really was. Number two, Lionel Messi just doesn’t seem to have the same fire as Cristiano Ronaldo. He is just so even-keeled. Ronaldo has a certain fire and excitement, even when he isn’t the one scoring. I just feel like I notice a fire that he has, that Messi doesn’t seem to show. Number three, the United States really should have been in this World Cup. Even though they sadly missed qualifying, they are a better squad than Costa Rica & Panama, and it is a tragedy that they were not a part of this. Number four is that Croatia making it to the FINAL MATCH is an absolutely wonderful story. A true underdog. This final match is going to be a David vs. Goliath story, and should be a lot of fun.
But of ALL OF THOSE THINGS, there is one thing that sticks out to me the most. There is one thing I can’t get my head wrapped around. And that is how much Kevin De Bruyne, the Belgian midfielder who plays for English Premier League club Manchester City looks either like the bastard son of WWE / UFC Superstar Brock Lesnar, or Brock Lesnar before the gym, steroids and some serious fucking genetics! Does anyone else see this, or am I crazy?
