World Cup Balls - The Brazuca

Aerodynamic Adidas Ball Confounds Cup Goalies

The Brazuca was designed to generate more scoring because goals are the "passion" of soccer, according to Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina. There have been 154 goals in 56 matches in Brazil so far, an average of 2.75 per game. That's more than in the entire previous tournament in 2010 and is on course to beat the 1998 record of 171.

Thing is, there's been very few long range goals. A couple but not a lot.
Most long range shots seem to fly over the bar. Maybe it's flying through the air "too well" sos there's not enough dip on most shots to get it on target :hmmm:

I'd say the increase in goals is more to do with defences being shit, than the football

I agree with you biggles.

Defence has been rubbish

I think lots of attacking positive play, teams going for it unlike the trap defensive nonsense, playing with fear. Humidity = tired players = goalstravagansa
