I have watched every single minute of the last few matches. By my count, I have now sat through two full games through regulation and two full overtime periods without a single goal being scored.
That would be 90 minutes x 2 games of no goals and 30 mins overtime x 2 of no goals. By my count that is 240 minutes of NO SCORING in one of soccer's premier events.
Then we get this goofy penalty kick finish, which has been poorly regarded for as long as I can remember watching soccer, which is usually once every four years for the World Cup (now every 2 years due to some mild interest in the EURO Cup). Back to the penalty kick finish- the world's greatest player Ronaldo did not even get to participate yesterday given the poor decision by Portugal to save him for last kick.
Well, today is the other semi final match between Germany and Italy. Hopefully, someone will score a goal.
