One of the best leagues I try to watch is La Liga. You can’t blame me because Messi and Ronaldo play there. 🙂
I cannot help but feel sorry for Spain’s exit in the World Cup. Composed of players whose combined caliber could scare opponents just by enumerating their achievements, I was disappointed by their performance.
Here’s my personal view.
Losing to Holland should not have been embarrassing if Van Persie’s side did not have a scare against Australia, which is not as strong as Spain in paper. If Australia could have created better chances against Holland, how did Spain fail to do so with all their experience?
Losing to Chile could have been a foregone conclusion. Spain lost its hunger to defend its crown. They looked like spent superstars only wishing to go home and retire.
Spanish football is one of the best. But, even the best should not rest on their laurels when hungrier contenders persevere harder to unseat them from their throne. That happened in Brazil when Spain simply sat on their throne and forgot to hold on to their crown.
My guess: Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Italy, France, Argentina, Germany, Belgium will reach the final eight.
