Fidel Castro is apparently still alive. And he's been watching the World Cup! According to Goal.com, he even has some views on the tournament that are exactly what you'd expect from the Puma jacket-wearing former Cuban leader:
"The vast majority of football fans do not even know what continent Uruguay is in but it seems to me that the referees are biased against the South American sides," Castro was quoted as saying by reporters.
So, wait, do the referees not know what continent Uruguay is in, either? If so, it sounds like that might be good news for Uruguay.
"It happened when Brazil lost to Holland, when all the decisions went against them and they were sent down to 10 men at a crucial time, which should never have been done."
I'm going to assume Fidel dozed off during the part of the match where Felipe Melo stomped on Arjen Robben's thigh while the Dutchman was laying on the ground.
"But a final now, between two European countries, will be as colorless and unhistorical as any since the sport was born in the world."
Well, if we're assuming that the Netherlands will advance to the final, you can't say it will be colorless. And if the Dutch and Spain end up playing each other, we'll be guaranteed a first-time winner. Not exactly "unhistorical."
