WCP #11: Spain WTF?

Spain's shock loss to Switzerland brings us our 1st real piece of drama. I haven't been quite as disheartened by the style of play as many in the media claim to be, but it's nice to see something weird once in a while. The fact that brazil only beat the Democratic People's Republic 2-1 was about as shocking as things had gotten. I wonder if things would have been different for Spain had the coach used Fabregas as more than a book-end on the bench w/ Valdes to keep Reina from rolling off the end. Furthermore, I wonder if there is some sort of conspiracy. It's long been known that to play for Italy, one needs to play in the Serie A. Could the same thing be happening in La Liga. If Fabregas wants to get his rightful spot in the La Roja, he may need to make that switch to Barcelona. In fact, the Royal Spanish Football Federation may be forcing his hand. Even if that isn't the case, something strange was going on... & that strangeness might just come down to 1 man, the man who saw his team out-shot 24-8, & the man who let none of those shots into the net, your Visions of Ypsi Player of the Day: Diego Benaglio.
Nice hands, brother
