Last week was action-packed. We got so many close games and three out of the six last matches of the FIFA WC ended in a penalty shootout. Argentina, Croatia, and Morocco all demonstrated the skills required to win these tense games.

Heather Mitts slammed fans

Mitts talked about how soccer is perceived as a boring sport in the US. She wrote, “I hear so many people say but the US is no longer in and don’t watch. They missed some unbelievable games. Then there are the folks who say but I hate when they end in PKs. If people only understood the practice required to become one of those PK takers. The precision necessary when nerves kick in. The mind games keepers play. It’s an art. A dance. All of it. Love this game”.
