World Cup Top Ten Memories
#7 Spain's inevitable early flight home
Not so much a memory as a recurring incident: Spain choking and going home early. Since 1982 (the first World Cup I was alove for, but have no recollection of being only a 3 year old calf then) Spain have lost to Northern Ireland; South Korea; Nigeria; Yugoslavia and Belgium. They have drawn with high-flyers like Honduras.
For a team of such undoubted quality, it is quite amusing that they continue to take it right in the cohunas whenever the pressure starts.
Q)How many Spaniards does it take to change a lightbulb?
