Think the objective from FIFA was the record for number of goals scored. The extra time allowances are ridiculous. Can only imagine the pituitary apoplexy in the dugout when 8 lights up on the board. All the king's horses moved up top, sweeper keeper launching it in.

Go check again. Their players are very good. They don’t have a true#9 everywhere else they have above average players. Did you see how many saved their GK made? And his backup is supposedly better than him.

One day we too will be scoring freely like this even with Moses Simon dancing atilogwu with the ball on the left wing

But the general public, with none of those advantages, should not be concerned that 18-year olds can buy AR-15s

I am with you. FIFA should just end it. Pure humiliation to one of the countries I really like. Good people, great vacation spot.

Costa Rica qualified based on experience and having a stud goalkeeper. They huffed and puffed their way to the WC. Most of their good players are old. They are going through what Chile is going through right now. Jamaica and Panama are on the up and Honduras finds a way to make it every other WC.

Spain has moved on from the old guard and are benefiting, Nigerians are still twerking for Musa, Simon, Etebo, Ekong, Balogun etc etc.. :rotf: :rotf:

The objective is to take out time wasting as a tactic. Time spent on subs, discipline issues, goal kicks, throw-ins etc. They keep track of all the stoppages and tack it all on at the end. I think it's a good thing. Teams just have to adjust. Many goals scored in extra time so far.

This is a common theme I'm finding. Man, I've been playing and following since I've been a kid, now am 56...and this lesson always amazes me.

:!:

Spain is remarkable in how they transitioned. Retired one of the greatest NTs. Wasn't totally smooth, a process since the win in 2010. A 12 year plan of sorts. But they did...look at all this youth playing SUDDENLY with maturity, composure, and the highest skill.

Again, I didn't rate them too high. Rated them more on style, which is a good football school, rather than players. But they now seem to have the players.

They planned this. I know it is hard for Nigerians to follow all this in lieu of not qualifying. And because there is a lot of talent in Nigeria. I'm frustrated in the same vein for Croatia...as we have everything but a staff willing to go with such youth, suffering the pains, investing for the future.

We all can learn from Spain. Not saying they will win this. But with this kind of caliber and level of play...won't surprise me if they do. My eye test so far likes Spain and France. Same lessons apply to France...who ironically may have been forced to go more with youth because of the injuries.

Really strong point.

Somebody should note all the changed factors and how much they are causing upsets.

Funny, because Ohsee always say let's see over the marathon what happens, be it war or football.

It applies here: let's see how Argentina, Germany, France, Spain, and so adjust to exhaustion, different time zone, climate, officiating, November, and injuries. I'm not saying it's all this, as teams like Saudi Arabia, Japan, Tunisia, and Morocco got their results also on football merit.

Again, let's see what happens over 2 games. Maybe it is a matter of stronger teams adjusting, in near real time. Football is like that.

Guys, my friend brought up something I didn't catch: Spain's style lends itself to the heat.

Chasing that possession will exhaust and dehydrate an opponent faster.

Something to think about.

The Football Gods seem to be blessing Spain.

Not to take anything away from Spain but Costa Rica is really weak. Let’s see how they play vs Germany who’ll offer a much better test

I don't think Costa Rica would get whipped 7-0 by other strong opponents. They way Spain did was eye opening. It's not just possession based on style and training...but these players seem built for it, with a finishing and composure of top class.

Indeed let's see how they do against Germany...a team just beaten by a decent Japan outfit.
