All the teams in the Euro 2008 that had the possibility to rest player in their third group match lost their quarter-finals: Portugal, Croatia and Holland. So, it looks lik it is bye-bye Spain. I wonder whether there are some statistics out there where they show that resting players is a really bad idea. Maybe the loss of intensity in the main team in such a short competition has a negative impact on the group. I find it surprising that manager haven’t thought about this much.
