Spain’s Soccer Team Let Ricky Rubio Down

Much like everyone else on the planet, Ricky erroneously assumed that Spain would romp the U.S. yesterday: “Ricky Rubio is already 0-for-1. The Spanish point guard said his country would beat the United States in Wednesday’s Confederations Cup soccer semifinal. ‘We will win, sorry,’ Rubio told reporters in Manhattan.”

    I would have expected that(A) the reporter and (B) SLAM commenters would reply “What is the Confederation Cup ? What is soccer ?”

    this is bigger than when we beat england in 1950. esp. after we got rolled by brazil and italy(i think) a couple weeks ago.

    Kiran, you’re an idiot. Did I say he was overhyped?
    I said he was not likable.

    Cosign B. Long. People mistake hype for excitement. It sounds to me like the general public sentiment is against Rubio, but there’s a real possibility he could be a special player. The Rubio-is-overhyped bandwagon is carrying the same kinds of people that hyped him up in the first place.

    To be honest i doubt there was many people in the US that thought USA would beat them so i’ll give him a pass on this

    Spain had not lost a game since 2006! I think the American soccer players thought Spain would win too. Give the 18 year old kid a break!

    They let me down too… It was like betting the Knicks are going to make the Finals next season…

    nyahahahahaha, i’ve been waiting for this specific spanish national team to FAIL ever since they beat Germany in the last Euro – semifinals (Eff you Fernando T.) How does it feel, losing to the US of A of all Soccer nations, biatches?
    (although, the Americans sure came with the thunder in this confed cup, Donovan sure profited from his stint with Bayern last season, dude was incredible against Brazil in the finals… amazing finals game…)
