1. No draws. Lots of scoring. Columbia and Mexico the only teams with clean sheets so far.
2. Officiating is bad. Not the worst it could be but bad. Starting with 1st Game.
3. Rain is affecting most games.
4. Heat is affecting all the games. It is causing the players to sweat excessively. Legs cramps are rampant. It is probably the biggest enemy. Giving the host a decided advantage.
I likely won’t be able to keep up with all the games to come. But I think this has been a thrilling opening to a World Cup. And I will be keeping up. Just not as much when I have work.
