The Spoiler’s Disappointing World Cup 2010 XI
If they had faces, they’d be blushing
Okay, it’s important to define what “disappointing” means, because it’s very much a blanket term.
In the case of the above XI, some disappointed because they teased the planet all season, then failed to blow everyone’s minds when it really mattered.
Others disappointed because they were supposed to be the best defenders in the world, and they each played a shocker.
For one or two, this was their time to announce their arrival on the world stage, and they just so didn’t grab the bull by the horns.
In general terms, it means playing for England, France or Italy – with the exception of Ronaldo.
Oh, and one man makes it into the side because he patted the ball into his own net against America.
Lucky to slip the net were Fernando Torres, Felipe Melo, Steven Gerrard, and Kaka.
