goal productivity isn't linearly related to how much time is spent on
offense. The 8 goals scored by Spain are the product of their play and that
of their opponents who more often than not parked the bus. All dominating
squads are faced with the same issue. Most of the squads that scored a lot
played counter-attacking ball and there are good reasons for that.
