THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND EVEN THE METRICS THEY HAVE:

Ronaldo wins man of match in rough opener (DENNIS PASSA, 06/16/10, AP)

Queiroz praised Ronaldo for setting an example as captain and for his overall contribution.

FIFA statistics from the match supported the coach’s assessment. Ronaldo played the entire match, directed one of his three shots on target, and completed 21 of 35 passes.

Ronaldo, who scored 26 goals for Real Madrid this season but has not scored for Portugal since a 1-0 win over Finland in February 2009, admitted he was frustrated throughout the match.


There's no better example of why America will revolutionize the game. Those numbers gave him the lowest percentage of passes completed of any player on the field and yet they are supposed to show he was the best player in the game.
