    And how many times has that happened in the last 20 years? It can happen, seldom does. It's a common occurrence in futbol.

    There are more entertaining things to watch.

    By the way, I've come up with the perfect plan to make soccer mainstream here in the US.

    1. Cheerleaders.

    2. The scoring is to low. Widen the goal area to allow higher scores under US rules. Feel free to go back to international rules for international matches.

    3. Set a time of possession where the team that last kicked the ball has to try to score or it goes to their opponent.

    4. Use digital recording technology that allows for "live" TV coverage to be manipulated to create artificial intervals for commercial breaks. Example: start live coverage about 30 minutes late so that the live recording can be paused to play commercials and/or digitally slow down the live feed viewers see to be able to pause it to play commercials. If TV stations can play commercials, they'll have incentive to broadcast matches. If matches are on TV, it'll create more interest.

    5. Make post game concerts with popular acts a part of the price of the price of admission.

    6. Team mascots that do goodie 2 shoes stuff in their communities in addition to game day antics. Make then available for hire at private events like birthday parties.

    as opposed to tennis or squash, table tennis or badminton where every play results in a score?
