Hail king Xavi !
by vimalesh singh on Jul 11, 2010 10:17 AM

Xavi is a king of passing game. I have never seen him giving miss pass NEVER !
He is a legendary midfielder in my opinion and should come right after MARADONA and ZIDANE as far as midfield control is concerned.
In fact he some time controls and marshal the midfield as if the oponent players are SCOOLBOYS they just run around him to snatch the ball like they are begging for him to leave the ball. He is a real masterclass. His game is so neat...no tackle....no foul play, just pure masterclass. I love this guy.
Spanish dependence on this mastro can be understand by Legendary German Frenz Becanbaour words "it looks Spain attacks when Xavi receive the ball three times, that is the indication for other players to attack"....I think Holland Midfielder Van Bommel and Wesley Sneijder have to work in tendom and work really hard to outwit this MASTRO !
Its for the MASTRO to right History like MARADONA and ZIDANE !

What rediff couldn't present well throughout the cup is evident from their slideshow for a game as important as a Football World Cup Final.

Here's a clearer preview:


Strengths - Impenetrable defense, Impressive formations throughout World Cup, In-form strikers, Good at counterattacking
Weaknesses - Loose midfield, Excessive reliance on defense, Less-than-impressive goalkeeping


Strengths - Intimidating Gameplay, Tireless legs, Tactically proficient with a team comprising World's best goalkeeper, World's tighest midfield, World's best striker combo, World's most coordinated defense (Brazil notwithstanding lol), World Cup's highest ball possession team, World's strongest bench, list goes long. Add to that the goal scoring machine -- an in-form Villa!
Weaknesses - Torres poor (read unlucky) run, Predictable formations, Over-attacking gameplay which could be numero uno recipe for disaster against a team like Holland

over attacking play?Last three matches only 1 goal.If Spain win it will most boring team which will win world cup.
In 1994 Italy present same defensive structure but fifa thank to Brazil that it won world cup at that time.
Now FIFA need to think again how a team should get more goal, either by increasing the size of goal or removing offside system.
Spain should thank that Muller was not allowed to play because of two yellow card & two penalties were not given to German even when German player are tackle roughly in penalty area.

Spain playing boring game r u kidding...they scored 35 goals and were undefeated in qualifying matches....to defeat Germans you have to be one step ahead of them....I think Spain did their homework very well and that paid off...btw if Suarez wud have played for Uruguay then Dutch would have been out and Uruguay wuld have played final

Spain Vs Netherlands
by Bala on Jul 10, 2010 07:10 PM  | Hide replies

Spain reached final by playing beautiful game.

Netherlands reached the final by playing simulations and faking injuries against Brazil.

It should have been a Brazil Vs Spain final.
