Manager makes sub for the better of the team shocker!

It was a canny move, although I wonder if it'll be on Cillessen's mind if Argentina get a penalty in normal time and he's staring into the eyes of Lionel Messi knowing his manager would rather another man was in the goal.

In fairness it's a very rare kind of sub to see in football

Doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it (commentators were harping on about how it's disrespectful etc :lol: )

People won't be calling on Krul to start against the Argies now...because penalty shoot outs and a football match require two completely different skill sets meaning you can be great at one without being great at another. And Krul is obviously the better penalty stopper.

Substituting the goalie chap to another goalie chap for penalties would have been ungentlemanly conduct back in the heydays of Association Soccer when the game was played and managed by true British gentlemen. This Van Gaal chappie is just a cad and a bounder. Bloody foreigners.

Indubitably old bean. It just isn't cricket - the man is a rotter!
