Más talante que talento

The above is a description used here by Michael Robinson to describe Raúl. Despite his all-round averageness as a player, his usefulness as a talisman is now legendary. Last night, after half an hour where his contribution was a couple of leisurely passes to the holding midfielder, he scored yet another tap-in, precipitating lots of chest beating and unbridled testosterone-fuelled dancing in the rain, with plenty of lingering shots of sopping wet manly hugs. If this match had a soundtrack, this was the moment when It’s Raining Men by the Weather Girls kicked in.

Had Fabregas’s initial shot gone in, I doubt the goal would have had the same effect – Tunisia may have been able to hold out for the draw. Spain then put Tunisia to the sword, transformed by the mystical effect of a 5 ft 7 rabbit’s foot.
