"Get between the offense and the goal". Now. Always.

I think that one of the things that I liked about playing defense in the game of soccer is that it has some absolutes, some eternal truths. The last goal shows some horrid Swedish defense. The point of being a defender is to be able to get between the offense and the goal. Notice that the defender on the final shot is only BESIDE the US player: not good enough in hand grenades or international-level soccer defense.
