    I knew there was big money in the sport and that good players can make millions, but didnt expect it to be that much.

    Highest paid NFL athlete is half of that per year same with the NBA. Now baseball is a different story.

    he gets paid in euros

    and 50% of his money goes to spanish state as taxes.

    Apart from this, yeah, they get too much money. Plus top paid ppl in rankings are usually USA ones from NFL/NBA and such..., and many top euro players go to the states soccer league (MLS) at the end of their career just to get more money.

    In Gotze we trust!!!

    I hate that all the talk is about Messi, he lead a team of unimpressive argentinians to the finals.

    What about that Neuer goaltending throughout the tournament? He is an inspiration to me as a goaltender. Though I can't be inspired to grow any taller ;)

    DEUTSCHLAND DEUTSCHLAND DEUTSCHLAND DEUTSCHLAND!!!
