You can second guess Marta all you want, but when you look at how the women not only train and improve, but compete when it counts... Clearly all the right values are being encouraged at the national team camps. What an impressive showing at their first world championships for Simone and Kyla. Bravo!
I am not sure what the difference is with the men, and I don't mean this to be offensive, but it's like their best attribute as a team is the ability to underachieve. It's very frustrating to watch at times.
