What. A. Game. Spain is out and Russia continues to make its country proud. However, is it really? I want to talk about the one thing I hate about these tournaments and how it is inevitable in every tournament.
I don’t want to take anything away from Russia or that game because it was a fantastic game. I just get so frustrated at the teams that sit 10 men behind the ball and play for penalties. Listen, I understand that is what these teams have to do to win because teams like Russia can’t play with Spain straight up.
The method they choose is penalties and I think it needs to be fixed.
This World Cup has been great so far, but I don’t want to continue to see great teams try to break down bad teams. I want to see great teams battle great teams because that is what I wait 4 years for.
