The football and the craziness that surrounds it: The UFABET FIFA machine has finally got everything in place, and yet the agony is going to have to be extended. Before we get to Germany and the Cup, we are going to have to suffer the awards for the best player and the best goalkeeper of the tournament: Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer respectively.

Messi looks like death. Then, to ensure the world obtains its pound of pathos, the broken Argentinians have to do the whole loser’s-medal routine. Finally, the German squad are given their medals, the cup held back until they have all assembled on a camera-friendly podium. The final ufabet handover of the trophy is the only moment of unrehearsed awkwardness, as it moves, like a ticking bomb, from Jérôme Valcke to Sepp Blatter to President Rousseff to German captain Philipp Lahm. He joins his team on their own separate ยูฟ่าเบท Plexiglass plinth, the FIFA hierarchy and its allies as backdrop, all showered by golden foil confetti.

Lahm raises the Cup to an emptying stadium and a vast phalanx of photographers assembled below on the pitch.

Here, at the very pinnacle of this global moment, this condensation of humanity’s global networks and attention, we can, if we choose, see that after the ufabet football and the craziness that surrounds it, the real world has been present all along. The spectacle both dazzles and blinds us, but it has yet to seal itself off from challenge and critique, should we wish to engage with it.

It is not obligatory to do so, but if we wish to retain some of the life and spontaneity of our game, if we want to preserve the real solidarities and collective identities we derive from it, if we think ยูฟ่าเบท football should not be dominated by money and power alone, but by the logics of play, then it might be wise.
