African teams are defensively naive .. no they're not, they just do things differently (like booting Argentinians up the arse).

He sent the keeper the wrong way .. no he didn't, the keeper just dived the other way.

Team A needs to get back into this match .. they were never out of it if it's not over.

He's just playing for time... no he's not he's on ridiculous money.

He played that ball without looking... no he didn't he kept his eyes open.

When I played football people used to say "He's got two left feet" I've checked and can confirm one of each. :D

Bit like "If he had a decent left/right foot he'd be great." Whats he got then an elbow on his ankle?

Couldn"t hit a cow"s arse with a banjo. Could apply to 90% of the attempts on goal in the World Cup which go about 10 yards over the bar and into row Z.
