World Cup 2022: Spain is my quarter


Morocco wins on penalties and advances to quarterfinals. It's a victory for ugly football.

Are happy and should remain so: fans of the Spanish national team

Spain should have reached the quarter-finals yesterday, not Morocco, that's my opinion.

Please don't kick your home PC and listen to me for a moment.

The rejection of Spain that I perceive in this country is, on the one hand - here is a thesis - a general rejection of beauty, and on the other hand perhaps due to the fact that, absurdly, the Spaniards are still accused of being malicious, that they had deliberately lost to Japan , Germany was therefore a victim of Spanish tactics.

That was the longest sentence in the history of this mini-column.

But hopefully you know what I mean.

Morocco ran a lot, fought a lot, saved all penalties, with the help of the post, Morocco was good.

But Spain had the ball for three quarters of the game and let it circulate, Spain still has a football idea, a vision.

The reflex to be against the big ones and for the small ones, against those who have the ball, for those who don't have the ball, against the football empire, because as a latent anti-imperialist you are against empires, this reflex is an expression of a football sentiment that leads to a gloomy dead end .

In this cul-de-sac people kick, run, fight and sacrifice, but no longer play football.

I hope those who create will win, not those who destroy.

Long live beauty.
