Everyone's first game in the world cup is always a defensive battle, teams go into the games with the "let's make sure we don't lose our first game" mentality. akin to the first round of a Heavyweight boxing match.
Who would have thought that none of England, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France could win a game and only score 2 goals between them.
None of the teams have really shown how they can play (except Germany but lets face it they were only playing the Aussies). Even Brazil struggled for 50 minutes to breakdown North Korea.
Now the competition really starts, things will open out. Teams will need to go for a win qualify for the next round I think we are going to see some very interesting games
I agree I have been really disappointed with the over defensive chess matches so far. We all hope for open, exciting, entertaining football but
So if all goes to plan its England to score 5 against Algeria and then another 4 against Slovenia
Mind you I would settle for 2 1-0 victories!!!
