@Przelotnyptak1, what does it matter that Serbs are Slavic? So are RuSSians and look at what they've done to other Slavs for centuries. That's why it's completely meaningless to me. Serbs may be Slavs by blood, but mentally they're brothers of RuSSia. That's all that matters for me in the end.
No shame. We lost against the current - and probably also the next - World Champions.
Yes, the French were clearly a better team and out of our league, but that was a good match and a pleasure to see that the Polish team knows how to play football after all ;D That was like a completely different team than in that match with Argentina (which was a pain to watch). I sat glued to the TV the whole time :))
And a special round of applause for Szczęsny, who was nicknamed the Polish Minister of Defence in Poland :))):
His son looks like a little angel, btw :)) 🤗❤️
This Mbappe guy is an alien from outer space - at this moment much better than Lewandowski.
Yup. That guy is a beast :O And to think that it's their "worse" squad, because Benzema and some others are out due to injuries... I wish we had such "worse" squad as our best squad lol
That was much better than sitting thru 90 mins of watching them running around in circles.
That's because you're accustomed to sports where there's a lot of scoring and those 5 minutes show scoring goals. Football/soccer pitch is big - you have to run a lot in order to get to that point when you can score. Of course the opposite team doesn't want you to score, so they will do everything possible to not let you score.
What you call "running in circles" is part of the strategy, but also fun and beauty of that sport. It's not only about scoring, but HOW you get to that point when you score a goal.
It's also a myth that you can easily go to the toilet or sth during a football match, because "nothing happens". It happened quite a few times (when I was still watching games of Polish team) that I went to pee or to make some tea and in that precise moment someone scored a goal ;P
I think the fact that so few goals are scored in football makes them more rare, precious and celebrated. It's because all the players work hard for that one goal. So those goals are like a cherry on the top. It's not like in basketball, hockey, volleyball and handball where there's a lot of scoring. And yet, I somehow don't find those fast-paced sports any more interesting than football/soccer and I've watched them all.
Btw, some of the stuff I talked about is explained in more detail in this video - 'AMERICAN Reacts to Football Explained for Clueless Americans"
