Their football is so attractive that we sometimes forget that they are a counter-attacking team, meaning they actually defend with 8 or 9 players. Their counter attacks have been too fast for the teams they've come up against, that's why they've been so good.jacob said:Spain came up against two of the most defensive teams of the tournament, Portugal and Paraguay. But I think they adapted well to playing against that style after they lost to the Swiss in the opener. It has made for some bad games with uncharacteristic play by Spain. I think against Germany things will be different because Germany doesn't just park their men in front of goal.
As much as I've been critical of Torres, watch him be the hero and score the winner just like Euro 08. He desperately needs a breakout game, if he starts.
While most are writing Spain off, I give them a fighting chance. And even though Germany had to play England and Argentina, I think Spain had the tougher competition to get to the semis. This should be a good game and I hope the Germans get crushed.
Viva La Furia Roja! Viva España!
Lucky, I was there early June, just missing the World Cup...where in Spain?PKhoshaba said:
