Spain didn't even look like they tried in that shootout, it was like they were just passing to the goalkeeper or something.

Said the same thing about Japan yesterday. Apparently Spain had been doing tons of penalty kick practice tho so it is kind of odd.

Funny my dad called me to talk about it (he was a proper goalie back in the day) pointing out Spain's keeper also blew it. Like it's pretty standard these days for keepers to dive but if he just stayed on his feet he should of easily saved Morocco's pens. They just kicked it straight up the middle.

the guy is amazing. They've actually been at their best the whole cup. Bono saved some amazing shots when playing against Belgium

anyone else hate penalty shootouts? just feels like a coin flip, such a lame consolation. not sure how eklse theyd do a tiebreak though, maybe something to do with possession% or something.

you’re telling me you’d rather the winner be determined by a possession percentage over a shoot out .. now that would be disappointing as hell if it came to that

i don’t hate penalties at all .. it’s exciting as fuck and is part of the game .. its not luck or by chance that a winner will be determined this way and really shows who has the better team
What kind of mikey taylor logic is this?

Yeah penalties are great bc they’re infrequent.  Plus, a Golden Goal scenario seems tough bc there needs to be some kind of time limit on these poor guys

Well, after that game now i think I hate Portugal just as much as I hate Brazil. You really need to be going for goals in stoppage time when your up 5 points, and celebrating when you get one?

i mean by and large the shooter picks a side n the goalie is just guessing one right? just seems like pure luck

I guess you can't just leave them out there for 4 OT's like in the NHL playoffs though right?  Dudes would be pulling hamstrings and all types of shit I'm guessing.  But god damn a long NHL playoff OT is so amazing to watch.  Dudes just losing like 20LBS of water weight during a game and having to eat a full meal between periods just to keep the energy up to keep fighting.

Nah goalies study that shit and have crib sheets on tendencies and it’s on the taker to time pace, shot, and where to place it.    “Guessing” is a bit reductive

exactly, both the croatia but especially today the morocco goalie was not a having lucky guesses .. he knew what the shooters were going to do right as they were running up to the ball

If you don't prematurely dive you can save basically anything that isn't in the absolute top corner or crazy fast bottom corner. Which watching both shootouts nobody really goes for anymore almost every shot was one because the goalie went the wrong way

Penalties are indeed a reflection of the team's skill. I hear that they're 'all luck' too often. As if landing a tre flip is all luck

Glad Morocco got threw, the Spanish lads at work might actually shut up tomorrow:-) plus my mate is from there so stoked for him.
Gonna break my boycott Saturday French vs les rosbifs is too good to miss and I'll be at a house party were it will be on.

I see you are becoming more French by the minute haha ;D

About the golden goal: there was still a time limit when they had them. It just meant the game was instantly over when someone scored. If it did't happen, then it was a shoot-out.

anyways, as much as I wanted to root for Morocco (mainly cause I find Spain's style of play boring....)  their fans behaviour really soured me on the team.... Constant whistling when their opponents have the ball is just disrespectful. I noticed it in the Belgium game and it was exactly the same vs Spain.

Finally Portugal is looking real good without Ronaldo....Made me think of the Euro final they won vs France after Ronaldo was injured!

edit: how good was Goncalo Ramos' first goal!! the angle was incredible....The defender, the goalie, the commentators,
me ( :P), noone expected him to take a shot like that, with his left foot too!
