I hate watching my national team play. They couldn't score a goal on an empty net penalty. Maybe I should frontrun and be a spain fan, too.

Montenegro v England is a great match, Montenegro just tied up 1-1 but they are by far the more dominant team today

No he doesn't play in the MLS because he was one of the worst players in the league and I'm not even joking on that. He was flat out terrible and I unfortunately had the luxury of watching him play for my team(NY red bulls)

Well, it was no red card foul. He barely touched the guy. Why shouldn't it be reduced? Barca will win this anyway..

Good thing Del Bosque is not a fanboy and actually knows a thing or two about football. Anyone watching the game realized it was the right move, because Evra had been driven crazy by Pedro all match long (partly because he's a huge defensive liability, but also because Ribery NEVER helps on defense). As Villa was doing nothing, it made a lot of sense to put Pedro up front and get someone even faster and with better dribbling on the right like Navas. 20 minutes in he had already blown by his defender 4 or 5 times, had several good crosses and a good chance he blew by overthinking.

The Dutch qualifying group is weak as shit, they will go to Brazil completely untested.

Not just in this context, but I think throughout Navas is the best candidate when making an offensive change.

Spain play a chess match, they break you down, if they can't it means you're loading the center and ignoring the flanks an the flanks aren't making you pay. Navas comes on and you start having to pay attention to the flanks and the center opens up again.

All the other midfielders, they collect and run directly to the centre and allow the the offense to be dependent on the most incompetent offensive player in the entire team - Arbeloa.

I do think though he misses a trick by not pairing Navas with someone in the mold of Llorente or Soldado to attack the box. His crosses often go to waste in the manner you speak of simply because they fall to someone not accustomed to being on the end of them.
