Goalkeeping Tips, Tidbits and Random Thoughts
An athlete talking to themsleves during competition is hardly a new phenomenon.... The talk does not have to be vocal. By merely thinking you are talking to yourself and sending a message.

In the first half of the match against France, Patrick Viera powered a header goalward off a corner kick. Woon Jae was actually backing up into his net as the ball was fired in, and the ball apparently crossed the goal line before he deflected it out. No goal was given, however. Take a look for yourself. Awful goalkeeping, that.
Later in the second half, he made another save with his entire body, save his head, shoulders and hands (and, most importantly for him, the ball) inside the goal and over the goal line.
Simply keeping his weight forward and perhaps stepping off the line a foot or two would have prevented the controversy in the first place.
