World Cup 2014

To Console

 

To Console

This has been my favorite image of the World Cup in 2014.

David Luiz consoles James after a heartbreaking loss. It was clear that the gesture was done out of true respect (much deserved respect).

Brazil has since been eliminated as well, and David Luiz unfairly took much of the criticism after the match.

However, this image will be the one that I remember and will use as teaching tool for my son.

    A wonderful gesture. It’s moments like this that elevate sport above the noise.

      Perhaps I am just cynical, but I don’t believe the gestures of many American athletes are genuine.

        Out of curiosity, do you take gestures of athletes from other countries.at face value?

        I watched several interviews with David Luiz and believe that HIS gesture was genuine. I believe people of all nationalities have the propensity for deceit and self-promotion. That being said, I think that our athletes are worse than others.

    That is interesting.. I wonder what the salaries of the football players of these countries are?
