This has been an extremely low scoring World Cup so far, and for the most part, this has made it pretty boring. Not only has it been low scoring, but shots that usually would at least test the keeper are flying miles over or wide of the post. Once again, FIFA have a new amazing technological ball for the tournament and, as always, it's highly controversial. But how much do you think the Jabulani ball is affecting the tournament so far? Personally, i don't see why they don't just use regular balls that they would use in Serie A or the Premiership or La Liga for the tournament. Balls that people are used to. Why they introduce a new crazy ball for every tournament is beyond me. a short piece on the new ball: Plus it seems very coincidental that Germany were by far the most successful in the first round of matches with their 4 goals, and the fact that the Jabulani ball has been used in the Bundesliga for the past 6 months. Personally i think the ball is damaging the tournament and they should stop making these ridiculous crazy flying footballs for every World Cup.
