this is certainly true in Hockey where players are separated from their teams, cherry picked and formed into a national squad. In Canada there is lots of discussion as to who is picked for the final team after a training camp of the best. Not all selected are the best scorers though. They need "grinders" as well as pure goal scorers. I would imagine the same is true of soccer.
Watched Spain/Netherland...Spain just folded like a house of cards.
Not a big soccer fan but always like watching major sporting events like this. Uruguay/Costa Rica are just starting now
I'm not a bit footie and only just saw your post, so a bit late now, I did watch the match, different type of football, great game, shame about the result. Much better than the last ten years but still with obvious weaknesses that were predictably exploited, a bit like my trading... Thinking Johnson and dare I say it probably Rooney have to go or be rested..., but I think it's the start of a team for four years time, not this year.

Thanks: 204 given,
Only saw this now, before the game I was quietly confident that England could win/draw, not so muc during or after :-)
I think Rooney was very bad but playing out of position, more happy that Sterling and Sturridge were used well.
Some awesome games so far, Germany spanked Portugal yesterday, you probably enjoyed that one @Daytrader999 :-) A great team performance compared to the one man show of Portugal. My wife was saying she's looking forward to Germany vs Holland if they are drawn together, I cannot argue with that..

Yeah, I wasn't THAT convinced that Germany would have such a good start in the tournament, but the next matches will tell FWIW... I was quite disappointed about Portugal's appearance since they've played much better in the past...and after 0-2 IMO CR7 refused to participate any longer in the match, which is not a great attitude towards the team.
It seems like Rooney is a bit out of shape ATM which would be quite the worst moment now since the team needs a strong leader, but Sterling and Sturridge did a really good job and definitely will still improve during the tournament.
AND I missed Frank Lampard and some other big players of the good old times...
Well, and in regards to a possible match Germany vs. Holland, I really hope that they won't meet before the final, hehe...
