Again, my bad!:embarass:
No problem man, everyone makes mistakes.
That's really a poor decision.
As a pro he should be able to take any method or playing position his NT selektor appoints him. Wether he agrees with everything is another question, but you are a professional, and this is the NT, the highest possible honour a sportsman can get. You can't play with that.
That sounds reasonable of course, but we are not in his position and don't know all the things that happen. It is always easy to say from distance that NT is the highest possible honour and that everyone should play no matter what.
About yesterdays game, Brasil won 6:3 I think. I belive we are the first team in a long time who actually scored against them. Were you there?
Yes, I was there and it was a great game. Brazil are truly amazing team, you can't believe the acceleration of their players if you don't see it, their ball control, power within their shots are also amazing and their passing is so accurate that in 90% of cases the player gets the ball exactly where he needs it, he doesn't get it 10cm too much to the left or to the right, but exactly where he should get it. But our team played great too, specially in the 2nd half. In the first half they respected the opponent too much, retrieted too much towards our own goal and they controlled the game without problems. But in the second half our team started more aggressive covering and they didn't find it so easy to score anymore. Although it must be said that even in the second half they created much more scoring opportunities than us, but our goalkeeper in the second half was great, he had some world class saves. And before, after the game and between the halves, the crowd was entertrained by five girls from some brazilian samba dancing group, I think it's not an exaggeration if I say that they stole the show from the players.
All in all it was a great night and a great game. Funlovin, since you're from Maribor, you should go and see the game in Lukna hall tomorrow, I am sure you won't regret it.
