How Do You Spoil Soccer?

Whinge that the opposition team’s defense was too good. Seriously… since when did adapting your team’s strategy to an aggressive opposition offense become a bad thing? Maybe it’s because I don’t understand the nitty gritty nuances of football that I don’t quite understand how Santana can be bleating about having to actually think about how to break Iraq’s defense. I don’t follow European football and I have a phobic resistance to zealous South African’s cheering on Manchester United as if they’re Jesus with soccer boots, but I was under the impression that yesterday’s game was, if anything, a bit of a letdown thanks to South Africa’s failure to win, not Iraq’s ability to not lose.
