Soccer Players Too Tired To Score?

As I’m watching the World Cup, I think I understand why there hasn’t been much scoring.  No, not great defense.  And it’s not that kicking the ball in the net requires superhuman ability.  I think the players are winded and too tired to kick the ball accurately.  Yes, they are some of the best conditioned athletes in the world, but there is a limit to human capacity.  So I say, shorten the playing field, or the pitch as it’s called in Europe, or la cancha in Spanish.  Shorten it by 40 yards or so.  Fans will say this is blasphemous but players will secretly agree with the idea.  They will.
