Oh no. The truth is more bizarre. Fans of U.S. college football can guess where this is going: These goofballs were cheering for a tie! I finally realized that we were supposed to cheer whenever:
The highlight is the last goal. I wish I could find a video clip of it online to show you. Not one player had control of that ball. They were not kicking the ball. Rather, the ball was bouncing off of them all. It looked like pinball.
The slow-motion replay was the best. (Oh yes, there is slow-motion replay of goals, in a game where a typical score is 1-1.) You could see swarms of players from both teams gathered around the ball and just staring at the ball. They could not manage to actually kick it, so they were all trying Jedi mind tricks. "Ohhh noooooo" for the French; "goooo innnnn" for the Koreans.
Fun stuff. And, uh, go Switzerland, I guess. Congratulations on the, err, tie. Of a game you were not actually in.
