On Top of The World in the Moscow Rain July 16, 2018

So often the World Cup is about the winners but  there were no losers in the 2018 World Cup in Moscow.

Russia is a winner for its conduct of the tournament. France finished with their nose in front, two of their goals were courtesy of the Croatian defence, and Croatia benefited from a goal keeping blunder from Hugo Lloris

but both teams deserve accolades for their positive play and for their contribution to the spirit of the World game.

Didier Deschamps’ favourites France accepted the World Cup with humility and all the players on the pitch accepted their role in destiny with generosity.

This World Cup was about hope and the “beautiful game” showed why sport is important in bringing people and nations and cultures together.

In a difficult world this World Cup seems to have had a unifying principal at its core.

Congratulations to SBS Australia for its massive commitment to the broadcast and to commentators Lucy Zelic and Craig Foster and Martin Tyler for their consummate professionalism and sensitive presentations over four weeks.

Their insight and knowledge and even handedness  has been a major contribution to the quality of the media coverage of this tournament.
