Alexi Lalas on impact of Ronaldo injury
ESPN’s Alexi Lalas joined the show to share his thoughts from Rio on the World Cup.
Lalas talked about the impact of Cristiano Ronaldo. He said that Ronaldo is 75 percent of that team and noted he helps other players get open because he draws so much attention.
Dan asked if he’d rather play like Cristiano Ronaldo or look like him. He said play like him. “That’s a lot of maintenance for a guy like that,” Lalas said.
Lalas actually doesn’t have a problem with flopping. He said that U.S. does it less than other countries and it’s cost them at time.
