So, "9.25" for Brazil and a big fat ZERO for FIFA, after Blatter-crony-general Jerome Valcke did so much to show that FIFA had basically given this one up for dead months before a ball was kicked.

And to think FIFA had all but washed their hands of this tournament in the final weeks leading up to it, with Valcke letting anyone unsuspecting enough not to have moved away rapidly in the opposite direction that it was more or less "on Brazil". So massive credit to Brazil for pulling this off then, sod all for FIFA.

These fractional improvements worry me. Does this mean that Sepp plans to be around for 12 more years before handing out a 10?

"I am not at all happy with the way we fought against racism" - hope he's told the president of FIFA to deal with racism more severely in future.
