WC: CRO 0 – 1 BRA: 78th minute
The Croatians have had plenty of chances. The Brazilians seem to want to give them a way back into the match. The Brazilian coach finally had to take fatty, fatty Ronaldo out since he was just walking around the pitch. No sense in playing with 10 men. It’s sad to see someone with so much talent done in by something so easily worked on like fitness.
If it is your job to be in good shape and you get paid millions and millions to be in shape, how hard can it be to do that? Maybe he was carrying an injury, but in that case, he should have been taken out much, much earlier. At this point, there doesn’t seem to be much midfield play, just a lot of back and forth attacking.
