Thread: Continental Defense

  1. #1

    Default Continental Defense

    Once again, European football powers have executed a successful defense of the continent. No South American teams had won the World Cup in Europe, and will have to wait till 2014, but most likely 2018, to try again.

    Why is this so, I wonder? Home field advantage? Same can also be sid of the South american defense, as no European team had been able to make the break through in their home ground.

    That is correct. The only time any South American team won on European ground.
