5. Goals, Goals, Goals
Going into Saturday’s games there has been 78 goals in the opening one and a half rounds of the tournament, compare that to the 145 that were scored throughout the entirety of the last tournament (of which Spain scored eight) then it can be considered as a true that for the senses. The open nature of the games is a stark contrast to the closed defensive displays in South Africa and fans can expect the net to bulge with continued regularity.
