Why are the teams at the World Cup scoring less than this Sounders fan?
So yeah, this World Cup has had a bit of everything so far. It’s had big crowds, small crowds, some good refereeing decisions, it’s had a couple of bad ones. It’s had some indelible images and some that many (like Robert Green) will want to forget. In short, it’s exactly what we all hoped this World Cup would be… wait…
Oh, yeah, goals. We haven’t had too many of those. In fact, we’ve had even fewer going into Saturday than we did in Italia 90, the “gold-standard” of soporific, barely-watchable major tournaments.
I think it’s a bit early to make any conclusions about why haven’t seen too many goals, especially as Brazil, Spain, and North Korea haven’t played yet.
But still, if scoring doesn’t pick up, look for this to become an even bigger story across the soccer world than even the vuvzuelas.
