You’ll be shocked to hear that soccer players fake injuries. I know, right? Is nothing sacred anymore? The Wall Street Journal broke down the amount of time each World Cup team spends writhing around on the ground. Surprise, surprise, the USA is just as guilty as everyone else.
I’ve been reading the WSJ for years, they are a fine, fine news source. But that Italy info has to be wrong. They faked at least 25 injuries against Uruguay. I maybe made up that number—but did I? Did I really? Is it that far fetched?
At one point during the Uruguayan match, three guys went down simultaneously—for no apparent reason. I’m pretty sure one started crying.
