LAST NIGHT THE national broadcaster really stuck the (cowboy) boot into the nation, just when we thought we couldn’t get any more emotionally fragile.
World Cup fans watching RTÉ’s coverage of Brazil v Germany last night couldn’t believe their ears when they heard the soundtrack to the closing montage.

Would they really do that? Yes, it appears they would.
There it was – Germany scoring goal after goal after goal, devastated Brazilian players and their crying fans…all set to Garth Brooks’ The Dance.
Well played RTÉ. Well played.
