The pressure is on, the excitement is there, and the fans patiently wait for the England national team to succeed on the world stage. Unfortunately, for English fans, the English national team has not won the World Cup since 1966 and it will be a long time coming before they win again.
Diving is cheating. Either way you approach this argument, players that dive are not only cheating, but they are poisoning the game of soccer. Why do it then? Unfortunately, some players will dive to the ground crying in agony (only to get up seconds later pain free) in order to persuade the referee to make a call in their teams favour. It is in these instances that the entire atmosphere of the game itself and its image changes…for the worse. I am encouraging all players not to take this route of selling yourself and the game short.
