Its Not Over Until The Final Whistle

Its World Cup fever now and most soccer fans will be glued to the TV screen at 12.00 a.m, 3.00 a.m and 6.00 am. daily until July 14th to witness who take home the most prestigious cup in soccer.

I am not going to comment on the whole matches but just some lesson to be learned by sportsmen at any level and position. The game is not over until the referee blows the final whistle.

During the Argentina and Iran match everybody was t that thinking  the match will end up in a draw but when the fourth referee was about to lift the board announcing an additional 5 minutes of injury time, Messi spoil the Iranian hopes of writing a history. He scored Argentinian winning goal.

Then when Portugal was thinking of packing their bag to leave the World Cup and USA marching into an early entry to the last 16, Ronaldo and Silvestre Varela put a brake barely 30 seconds from the final whistle. The draw gave then a new hope of making it to the last 16.

Thats a lesson to be learned by all sportsmen in any sports. The final result is when the referee blows the final whistle.
