The Importance of Courage (MEX v NED WC14)

30 Jun

This is one of those subtle plays that I suspect non-soccer types don’t quite realize the importance of: how difficult it is to put your head down into two kicking feet in the hopes of shaking things up. The probability of success of the play wasn’t even that high; odds were that he wasn’t going to get the ball, but he did it anyway. And I agree that there was no foul. Nonetheless, kudos to him for even trying: the importance of courage.
