Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe there has a been a goal in the 2010 World Cup thus far that has been scored directly from a free kick. In a sport where the difference between a winning and losing team is often a goal from a direct free kick, it seems odd that there have been none thus far.
Yes, David Beckham is not playing due to injury. But how many free kicks have we seen that have floated over the bar or hit the wall of defenders?
Why do you think that is? Is it because of the ball, poor free kicks by teams or something else?
