Teamwork

You obviously need to have some skill to be successful in soccer at The World Cup level. But even more you need teamwork. England and the United States both played as a unit (even when, in the case of England, it would have been understandable to do otherwise). Compare that to Slovenia and Algeria… from the moment their game today began the players were yelling at each other, visibly demonstrating frustration with their colleagues’ play. As the tournament continues I think you will see what happens when one team plays together and one does not.
