It probably doesn't make a huge difference in the end, but I don't understand why teams don't stack all their best penalty shooters in the front. Is the #5 spot really that much more pressure than the first four? And if so, why not put your best guys in the first four spots and minimize the chance that the #5 spot ever comes up?

I'd say the pressure is greater on those in the later spots if before one or two shooters missed as it could all be depending on you (think of Schweinsteiger in the CL final). But number 5 spot, on the other hand, is rather late.

Which is why I'd rather put all the best shooters in front to try to get ahead. Put the pressure on the other team if at all possible.

8 hours 45 min to go...

I've a feeling that this is going to be the best match of the tournament.

Yes, also a good strategy. On the other hand, e.g. Ronaldo missed in the semi-final against Bayern. I think he was second shooter.

Agreed, most finals are shitty... To much safe playing , ball possession etc.
I hope and think this is going to be a great neck to neck game.
With, some nice goals in the first 90 mins.

Awesome match

loved it...balotelli was in some great form. Thank God the goalkeeper didn't attempt to save the 2nd goal..he would also have been inside goal line with the football if he had tried.


yes @Salome - we were right ;-)
