Spain: Domination through pass-pass strangulation

It seems like the aesthetic side of my football brain has had a blindfold done, smoked its last cigarette and now faces the long barrels of a firing squad. At first glance, Spain look like the ideal champions; easily pipping the Netherlands and their unstable mixture of lumberjacks and sculptors, far superior to England, their average players and self-aggrandizing media, and much better than Portugal, who get by with fielding one footballer and ten pieces of furniture in their ranks.

Countries have always had footballing stereotypes attached to them, often unwittingly reflecting the nation's wider living philosophy. Erstwhile West Germany were all about strict formations, defensive discipline and attacking organization; conversely, the Latin American countries exercised their creative license with exuberance, as the samba beat of attacking laterals replaced the stoic violin of conservative full-backs.

I was waiting for the Euro draw like a kid waiting for a Christmas present, finally the day came and I was waiting with bated breath to see what it was going to look like. So once the groups were in place the engineer in me wanted to break it down and analyse it. Surely, deep inside I knew I could beat a Shebby Singh or a Carlton Palmer hands down with my analytical skills.

England is a great place for football. Yes, we all know that and their domestic structure is all too awesome, that's why we love it. But, internationally the English team and its players look nothing like their premier league avatar, instead they look like a bunch of boys in tutus who play Sunday morning football.

Right from ancient times, when the balls were made from pig intestines and the goal had no crossbar, to a-changin' times where crystallized tears of Arsenal supporters sell like hot cakes after each game, football has always been considered a man's game. Rugged, craggy, rumble-tumble in the mud, and certainly no place for a dignified member of the fairer sex to mingle.

Lack of definitions is a huge problem!

In the context of soccer, when one says:

  • "Culture"
  • "Creativity"
  • "Possession"
  • "Attacking Style"
  • "Development"
  • "World Class"
  • "Great Coach"
  • "Great Player"
  • etc ..

Those things can all mean wildly different things, unless you have a proper reference.
