win while loosing ___
The World Cup which ended on Sunday
jul 09 according to european media was the best of all.
Tourism actions,technologic reforms and modernized stadiums
was the best and most colorful of all world cup' s up to date.
Especially in group games offensive and positive football
stratigies was the beautiful part of the cup.At the elimination
games money and physologic pressure effected coaches very
seriously.Second elimination group matches coaches reflected
fear of loosing to the team and field.
Sven Goran Eriksson...
Some coaches choice the team with full of fear.England ,Argentina
and Brasilians are the best examples.England coach Sven Goran
Eriksson which existed of 23 players choiced,three goalkeepers
and the same amount of forward players.
As you see forward players Owen and Rooney's injury risks
are taken into consideration.
The situation is much more interesting.
England played with two forward players in the group games
and with one in the elimination Rooney who had recently recovered
from the injury,and punished from the game with red card,because
of remained lonely in forward,all this was effected him because
This was another negative subject
Nearly for hundred years England played with two forward players
for offensive football.İn this world cup played outside tradition
like the South Americans.
İn the eliminations they turned back to short and fast single
forward players,most important to prefer reducing forward
player discovered front -sweeper.
Winning the game creating the fighting atmosphere in the dressing
room being the english football traditions.İt is imposible
to be accepted by the players and English media.
Klinsmann and South America
Argentina was another feared team to
play by the England.As you recall quarter finals played very
well against home team Germany 1-0 a head and argentina goal
keper was injured at the 71st minute.
İnstead of replaced goal keper Abbondanzieri unexperience
Franco took the post ,best players on the field Riquelme and
Crespo were replaced 73rd and 78th minutes replaced with the
defensive players while Saviola and Messi were sitting in
During the extra time it was gonna very difficult to attack
the other post.İf the game remained penalties experienced
goalkeeper Lehmann to saved Riquelme penalty in the champion
league semi final.
Because of this situation it should be much possible to lose
the game by Argentina against Germany and the cost of fear
by the Argentina technical staff was paid by being eliminated
Latins traditional courages fear was much more seen Brasilian
Argentina coach Jose Pekkerman only showed his fear in some
portion of game,however Perreira's fear was shown at the very
beginning of the selection of players for the national team
before the world cup started in fact before France game he
played one single forward to support mid field this was obviously
against his cultural and sportive traditions.
Thus Latin people believe in their tradition showed him necessity
On the other hand 2 year experienced coach Klinsman although
despite of all the criticizeses was not worried and trusted
himself,and in addition he choiced 20 year old Podolski from
second division and showed the courage to play in the 1st
eleven.He created a team which played attack and courageous
football which is unusual to the Germans.
Previous world cup,Germans played final,however
this time not being played final, Klinsman was the winner
because of his courage and philosophy İnfact Klinsman's philosophy
and team soul was not only in the team,at the same carried
this joy to the tribunes,streets, and even the German parliement.İt
seems enthusiasm will continue forever...
