The changes are also being felt on the field. "It's very goalkeeper unfriendly," England's keeper Paul Robinson told the Times. "It's very light and moves a lot in the air." Oddly enough, the ball is actually on the high end of FIFA's maximum weight specifications, meaning this apparent lightness must be attributed to its new aerodynamic profile. And while the goalies don't love the new ball, spectators will probably be hearing "goooaaaaaaal" a bit more often this year, making the transition for us Yanks, accustomed to watching the Phoenix Suns score 120+ points a game, a bit easier to take.
