Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

although if the NZ striker would have made his shot ( Woodson?) that would have made the game pretty brilliant.

The England players (mostly), individually, manage to hold places in top flight club teams. It's mainly a lack of cohesion and spirit and a conflict about which style to play.
precisely.

Why can't the English breed goalies any more?

According to Sportsmail, England had three of the top ten goalies of all time:

1. Gordon Banks

3. Peter Shilton

9. Ray Clemence

Perhaps, as England goalkeepers, they have more practice

We've lost the habit of saving. That trend might reverse soon though.

This list is very much daily mail... complete rubbish. I know I said it before, but: England did not win anything since 1966, so it is very unlikely that the players they had were the best... otherwise they would not lose.

Just one example of a keeper they forgot in that list...

Indeed some very fine saves - except of course for the cases where the player failed to provide enough lift, or shot it straight into his chest, or simply missed.

He no way deserved that second yellow . . . the Ivory Coaster wasn't looking where he was going and ran into him.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

french have really a bad press today. After the surrealistic strike of their team, the referee of Brazil-Côte d'Ivoire game made bad decisions: giving Kaka the 2nd yellow card and also not refusing the 2nd brazilian hand-made goal

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

This red card was really dirty, the referee had no control over the Ivorians, he should have showed some red cards to them before. any way for good Brazil won.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

For sure, this was the worst referee of the world cup. He should have show a red card to the guys who crack Elano just after he made the third goal of Brazil. Now I hope Brazil will appeal to FIFA get Kaka back for the next matches.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

Are you nuts??? Kaka was not even looking when Keita ran into HIM. And nothing touched his face...disgraceful. Too much diving from both teams.

And Fabiano...did Maradona's 'Hand of God' attach itself to Fabiano's arm? How could the ref miss twice...

ah well...more drama on the pitch.

Re: 2010 World Cup actual match discussion here (all matches)

Kaka did not deserve the card.

Btw coming back to England I think all the media/public drama is overblown. First the media builds them up and makes them out to be 100 times better than what they actually are and then shoots them down. I guess people like all the drama

English team tried their best and it was not good enough. Every team that is in SA has qualified on merit. So yes Algeria might not be Brazil but they are not a school team either.

In the past I used to dislike Rooney but in recent years I have warmed up to him and actually feel sorry for him now. Hopefully England will win their next match and move forward. If they don't then so be it.....it's not a matter of life and death.
