No, that was about preventing a clear goal. :p

 

By targeting the ball, not the player.

Which comes to show that FIFA rankings are just as meaningful as my opinion on football: 0 :p 

 

Not a fan of the ranking system myself, but I undestand this situation a bit differently: probably this goes on to show how unpredictable football can be. I mean, who would have thought that Russia could beat Spain? 

As for the ranking itself, it's idiot to have a ranking system and let it have zero effect on the World Cup qualifiers. Teams ranked 9 and 17 did not qualify, while teams ranked 61 and 67 did.

off topic- Alexander Ovechkin will have the Stanley Cup for himself right during the day of the RUS-CRO quarterfinal match so he already announced that he´ll show the hockey saint grail to everyone in Moscows Fan-zone right before the kick-off of the matchl :d

But this is what I hear people say about literally every sport every now and then.
