I watched Spain and the Netherlands in last Sunday’s World Cup Final. My love is baseball, but when the World Cup is on, I try and follow.
One comment I hear consistently after a World Cup Final from commentators is they wished the final had been more “beautiful” or some such phrase. They feel, somehow, the final didn’t give a great picture of soccer.
Not being acquainted with soccer, and completely baffled by this “off side” rule, I just want to know… what DOES make it a beautiful game if the final is NOT a beautiful game?
