Where did good quality football go? June 26, 2006

Posted by dtenjo in Soccer, Sports, World Cup 2006.

After seeing the result from the Italy-Australia game in the round of 16, only one thing comes to my mind about this round of the world cup… Where is the good quality soccer that we saw in the first round?

So far we’ve seen boring games, where the teams that are supposed to be favorites haven’t really shown clarity, and the “underdogs” never really showing to be a threat. We’ve seen tangled-up games decided by one goal, and literal battles, like the one seen between Portugal and Holland, but none of the good soccer with lots of goals seen in the first round. In the end, the teams that were expected to win have won, but not in a convincing way. Is it the pressure of the knock-out round? Who knows…
