    On the top ten plays today they chose to show the Argentina goal from the Confederations Cup Final instead of one of the four beautiful goals that Brazil scored against argentina. They could have showed Adriano's blast, Kaka's goal, Ronaldinho's meg on the keeper, or Adriano's other goal. But they chose to show a consolation goal that made the game 3-1. :eek:

    4x1. Not really a blunder. A poor choice compared to Brazil's fourth goal, but an easy one to understand since it was a diving header. To understand the beauty of Brazil's fourth goal you need to watch at least all 68 seconds of that play, maybe some of the history between the two teams.

    That's not really a blunder, just a difference of opinion. A blunder would be ESPN saying the Argentina goal was scored by Brazil. Which, of course I wouldn't put past them.

    It was an excellent goal on its own merits. No blunder here. Save the ESPN-bashing for the many legit occasions.
