VATICAN CITY — The curiously apt World Cup final match between Argentina and Germany (plus a slowish news day) means Twitter is aflitter with funny memes and hashtags for #PopeCupSunday.
Too funny! I’m not a sports fan at all, but I am stupendously in awe of Pope Emeritus Benedict so, go Germany! Unless the game is over…
I miss Benedict XVI. Go Germany!!
The Pope and emiritus pope should watch the game togethor.
Prediction: Germany 3-1 final
They should be invited to bless it together. If I were running the cup, I’d invite them.
LET GOD DECIDE!!! who will win lol.
Love ya, Pope Francis, and to be honest I think you’re in luck. A European team has never won a cup final in South America. Regardless of what anybody says, Germany are definitely underdogs here. All the same…mein ganzes Herz ist mit Deutschland!!!
(Oh, and if I need to say it: :D)
I miss him too, so–Go, Germany!!
Mein auch!!Go Deutschland!!:extrahappy:
I think RosslynV’s prediction is right, Germany wins 3 - 1
Argentina to win in Added Extra Time, maybe the Shootout.
Germany can be overconfident they defeated a Brazil that was given a lot of breaks in the tournament.
I miss him too.
He is my favorite Pope.
If Germany win, I congratulate them. They are a great team.
Per the World Cup in general, it sounds like Brazil as a country really has some big poverty and social problems.
And in 2 years I think, they host the Olympics.
Despite the huge win over Brazil, I don’t think it will be as high of a scoring game as that. Both will play defensively and conservatively for the vast majority of the game. Goals will come from mistakes, and neither will make many.
I’ll say Germany 1-0
That’s a funny picture
Lol another great picture. I was watching a picture where the Argentina starting line up is being presented and Pope Francis is seen in the starting 11.
I think Argentina will win another close game
