Looks Like I Picked The Wrong Week To Stop Huffing Glue

Spain lost their opening match to the Swiss 1-0
this was a match they were expected to dominate
and they did in every statistic except the one that mattered most
outshot them 25-9
outcornered them 12-3
time of possession was 63-37

just think about what Spain is up against now…
no team has lost their opening match and won the World Cup
only 8% of all teams who have lost their opening match, have advanced past the group stage
the last team to lose any match, and still win the World Cup, was Argentina in 1978
facing must-win situations in their next two games against Honduras and Chile
and if they’re lucky, a second-round match with Brazil
