Well, I'll be one to object to 2015 but I will talk properly about it in a different thread.
Gianni, could you discuss this please. A bit unfair to let it hang out there and not detail the issue.
I remember Gianni wasn't happy about the time pressure on Sunday and that some elimination matches were 1 round only. Perhaps that's the only issue.
Well, of course that restricted time wasn't very welcome but we were aware about that, so no problem at all. it is just a thing we have to bear in mind in future world cup. In future selection of world cup venue, we must definitely avoid a venue in which there is an early time restriction, above all on day two, in which we never know what can happen. just figure out a blackout of 3 hours in the Dublin venue this year. not a so remote possibility, above all in a venue where water and electricity were so near. in that case we would have had to cancel the world cup.
Instead without time restriction we could have had recover the matches after the blackout.
My point wasn't related to a logistic problem though, but thanks Pedro to point it out.
