World Cup Winning Team Should be?
A lot of debate needs to be done after the quarter final stage of FIFA world Cup 2010. Its clear after the first and second round that having one of the best players on your side, like Portugal having Christiano Ronaldo and England having Lampard and Rooney is not going to give you a win. England being kicked out of World cup By a Younf german football team is clearly a result of controversial decision by the Umpire of that match. The goal of lampard was clearly an equaliser for the first half of the game. Disallowed Goal really put the England team in a Mental Trauma from which they dint recover throughout match. But in the end only the best team won.
Argentina on the other hand found itself lucky when a clear off-side goal on the pass of Messi was allowed by the Umpire. Isn't it obvious from the above discussion.
1- Fifa needs to imply modern technology in the Football World Cup now. Even after decades of controversial matches, in one of the worlds most celebrated tournament of the world, we are still seeing some controversial decisions on the field.
2- The teams should consider the fact that its the team that wins the game rather the one individual star to rely on. The star is all alone if you depend on him soulely. Rooney, Lampard, Geraad and Ronaldo, all needed some good passes or support on the field to perform.
3-Its not the experience that counts its the team spirit, which made Germany ahead of England.
