That Took Genius

Russian Football skipper, Andrei Arshavin, has noticed a weakness in the England team: the goalkeeper. And he aims to exploit this weakness.

"Robinson, putting it mildly, is not the strongest representative of his profession - this is our chance!

"We will have to try and disturb Robinson. "

Now I might not be the most tactically minded of people, but this essentially is saying that if our players keep hitting the ball toward goal, then one might just go in. That seems tactically sound to me.

Of course having watched England on any number of occasions, this does seem like advice that not everyone is aware of. It does though make me wonder what happens when Russia play a team with a good goalkeeper. Do they not go anywhere near the goal for fear of looking bad, or what?
