Anime-Fueled World Cup Thought For The Weekend: Gundam

Posted on: June 25, 2010

In the United States vs. Ghana match tomorrow, the United States team is going up against famed Ligue 1 striker Asamoah Gyan. Ghana’s national team is also nicknamed the Black Stars.

In my mind, this means that the US game plan is simple.

Gaia, Ortega, and Mash!

Ghana's midfield in action

– Ghana will most likely play an attacking 4-3-3 formation, with Gaia, Ortega, and Mash ready to counter any of Landon Donovan’s efforts. However, it will be easy for him to pierce the midfield defense because their tactics will always be the same: the three Black Stars will line up and first try to tackle him, then try to shoot him with a bazooka, then try to tackle him again. Should the referee not issue an instant red card for bringing beam swords and bazookas onto the field, Donovan can easily defeat this maneuver by jumping on Gaia’s head and continuing his run.

– Should Gyan manage to ambush Tim “RX-78” Howard, the US keeper will not be in any trouble. Howard’s spaceborn birthright allows him to thwart all of Gyan’s attacks with ease, and even with bruised ribs, one arm, and no head sensors, Tim will be able to punch the ball out of goal.

Soko da!

Tim Howard performs an amazing one-handed save

With those two basic tenets in mind, US victory should be assured unless the Titans panic and start gassing people, that’s an automatic red card.

I live for the day when the “Jet Stream Attack” is employed in professional sports.

Hopefully the US has all-red uniforms. They’d be able to pull off the theatrics 3 times as fast
