Pros and Cons

Pros and Cons

This World Cup has been disappointing in some aspects, and stunning in others. There have been many controversial features, the most worrisome being a mischievous ball (Adidas Jabulani), even the name sounds malicious, and some very frustrating calls by some, in my opinion, biased referees, whom I think call fouls on this or that team by the mood they’re in. What is the point of watching the 2010 FIFA World Cup if you aren’t loving what you see. Another thing that is very much in the way of an exciting World Cup is that the team favorites are not performing not even close to what is expected of them. I have a couple examples of this. England is a huge favorite among soccer fans around the world. An early goal by Steven Gerrard gave them the lead. Then, five minutes before the half was over, Clint Dempsey shoots. The goalkeeper isnt able to hold on to the ball, and it slips away from his hands. England goes on to tie, again, with Algeria. Really England? Rooney, Gerrard, and Lampard and this is all they accomplish. Another example, the team that almost won the last World Cup, France. They were also huge favorites, and probably still are, tie they’re first game, against Uruguay. Was this expected? No. If there is anybody who expected France, to tie with Uruguay, then I would like to hear they’re argument, because they must be either psychic or just had a feeling. Anyways, let them tie. One game, thats all right? Nope. They’re next game, they are up against Mexico. OK France, the world thinks you can pull off a win, I think, not that I am the spokesperson for the world. Lets assume. Well, our France goes and loses. Two to nil. Again, the have Henry, Ribery, Malouda, and Nasri. A very dcevant performance. OK, enough of the sad stuff. Some things, I must admit, have kept me on the edge of my seat. Argentina, and they’re little wizard, Lionel Messi have been taking control of the most exciting play. They’re two wins, over Nigeria and South Korea, have been enough to prove that they are definitely in contention for the World Cup.

It seems to me, every time the ball goes down they’re opponents end of the pitch, I’m as alert as an alarm clock on a monday morning. Lionel Messi, and Gonzalo Higuain are definitely proving to be a tough duo. Also, though this isn’t a good thing, I’m going for Portugal, even though they arent looking sharp. Cristiano Ronaldo hasnt made anything happen, save from an offside goal, and a seat rocking shot, from just outside the penalty box, that hit the pole, and I must say, the goalkeeper was nowhere near the ball. And also, even though I have contradicted them, Uruguays defeat of South Africa was an exciting match, just to be superficial. Brazil looks like it is holding its own, in the Group of Death, but they still have another match coming up. Well, it seems like there have been more cons than pros, but the FIFA World Cup is definitely worth the watch. It’s where soccer legends are made, and history is written.

Three of the Most Disappointing Team of the 2010 FIFA World Cup

Three of the Most Disappointing Team of the 2010 FIFA World Cup

With the 2010 FIFA World Cup now at the semifinal stage with four sides left in the tournament, teams and countries are able to take a look back and evaluate their performance. Some notable teams did not make it past the group stages, while others were unceremoniously ousted from the round of sixteen. Of course, some nations expect to win the Word Cup on every try and inevitably leave disappointed. There is a reason the World Cup may be the hardest trophy to win in team sports. Take a solid and complete effort from all members of the squad, sprinkle in little pieces of luck, and then maybe you make it to the semifinals. While some teams should have had a much better experience like the United States, Ivory Coast, and perhaps even Japan they were not the most disappointed performances in South Africa. Here is a look at the three most disappointing team performances at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, oddly all of them hail from Europe: 3 Italy

When the groups were drawn back in December, it looked like Italy would advance easily. But taking two points from group play got Italy eliminated from the 2010 World Cup. Perhaps the lack of any new faces took a toll on the squad, or maybe the team just was not playing well. Still, the biggest tournament is the grandest stage and if the players could not get excited for this one, it is likely time for some changes. A team that is defending a World Cup Championship should show more grit and determination, just plain and simple Italy never really looked that good.

The 2010 World Cup was not kind to England. Yes, this group of supremely talented millionaires made it out of the group stage. Yes, they were the victims of an unfortunate “no goal” call. But the team never really seemed to mesh. Complete with some of the most dynamic players in the entire world, expectations were high for England in South Africa. Wayne Rooney never found the back of the net and never really seemed to get on track and perhaps the absences of Rio Ferdinand hurt the back line, but a team this loaded with superstars should have played better. It is now time for coach Fabio Capello and company to start second guessing everything.

1 France

There is a word to describe what happened to France at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, self destruction. It was one thing after another for France, and none of it good. It showed on the pitch with the French only taking one point from group play and being eliminated. After a stellar showing in 2006 reaching the Final, everyone expected more from France. The French did not just fail to reach the knockout stage of the tournament; they went crashing out in grand style complete with the bad press that goes with such failures.
