By the end of today’s match, a Tottenham Hotspur player will be in the World Cup finals.
I KNOW, it’s friggin’ awesome! Either it will be Hugo Lloris, France (and Tottenham) captain, or the Belgian bros of Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, and Mousa Dembele. I literally can’t decide which one to root for.
On the one hand, it’s awesome because someone’s going to be very, very happy at the end of this match. But on the other hand, someone is going home after coming so close to World Cup glory. It’s so sad.
So I choose to watch this match as a neutral. I will rejoice with the winners, and commiserate with the losers. Either way, Tottenham Hotspur wins.
