The weather and football pt II – the next world cup

Filed under: Football — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 1:31 pm

The last three World Cups were held in the Northern hemisphere summer – France, Japan/Korea and Germany.

The next is in the Southern winter.  So what?  Expect more pressing, and higher tempo games.  Woohoo.  Fast is good, right?  With cooler temperatures, workhorses can work harder, longer.  Expect the “artistes” to have less time on the ball and less space.

Spain could still win the whole thing, but they will have less time and space, and they won`t be able to tire out and stretch opponents as quickly as they could in a summer tournament.  They`ll have to be … exceptional.

Could get interesting.
