Saudi Arabia shocked the world Tuesday, beating Lionel Messi and Argentina 2-1 in Group C of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Could another upset be brewing?
Returning to the World Cup for the first time in 36 years, Canada’s first task is a tall one against the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Belgium. Croatia, the runners-up from the 2018 World Cup, drew Morocco in a scoreless final tally. Germany was upset by Japan. Spain, 2010 World Cup champio faces Costa Rica in the middle of Day 4.
Spain leads 3-0 over Costa Rica at halftime, but the score is only a part of this domination.
Spain has possessed the ball 85 percent of the time in the first half and has seven shots on goal. Costa Rica hasn’t come close to seeing the net in the offensive zone and has been called for offsides three times.
Spain passed the ball 583 times. Costa Rica only has 103.
Could you have stopped Torres’ penalty?
The average speed of a professional penalty kick shot is 80 mph shot. Step in the shoes, or put on the gloves, of a World Cup keeper and get ready to “Make the Save.”
