    I didn't watch the aftermath of the game but the consensus seems to be that the Argentinians behaved really badly.

    The Daily Telegraph (most right-wing of the British non-tabloids) produced the following editorial today:

    The war is over

    Whom to support now? It would be churlish, after all, to lose interest in the World Cup simply because England was knocked out, as is traditional, on penalties in the quarter-final.
    Our first instinct is, of course, to back Portugal, almost the only European state with whom we have never quarrelled. The Portuguese have fought by our side for 700 years, even joining the First World War for our sake.
    Just this once, however, there are better reasons to cheer for our old adversaries, the Germans. On the pitch, they have displayed the qualities we most admire: stoicism and pluck (compare their coolness on Friday with the crybabies from Argentina).
    Off it, they have been brilliant organisers and generous hosts. Above all, the tournament has allowed Germans to wave their flag without awkwardness. Victory might mark the belated normalisation of German patriotism. It's time to learn the words to Deutschland über alles.
