PostSubject: Spain Goalkeeper Iker Casillas complains about Adidas ball (Jabulani)   Fri Jun 04, 2010 7:11 pm

One of the very first complaints was made by Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas after Spain's 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia "It's a little sad that in a competition as big as the World Cup to have such a poor ball. It's not just the goalkeepers complaining, but the outfield players as well".

Casillas readily admitted that goalkeepers tend to complain about the ball being used in big tournaments (the World Cup, the Euro, the Copa América, etc.) because “it’s new” and unfamiliar to them. During the domestic season, leagues around the world use different balls than the ones used in big tournaments. For example, in England, Italy, and Spain this past year the leagues used a Nike ball. So, asking goalkeepers to get used to a new ball in a very short amount of time—most teams will play one or two friendly matches before a big tournament begins, and that’s the only time goalkeepers have to get used to how a ball moves in the air, spins, feels, etc.—that there’s a bit of a shock period that has to be gone through.

Was Casillas just upset that he let a goal in against Saudi Arabia, or is Spain seriously having issues with the ball?
