Nice movement with the colors but overall too busy, especially with the mix of movement and stillness of the spectators/crowd. I gave this a 4 during voting.
Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
Depending what your aim was with the image (just taking a shot during the game, or going for a specific effect), perhaps trying to focus further to the fore, especially at the players and the action and using a shallower depth of field to eliminate / reduce the crowd, would have produced a stronger image. Again, depends what you were going for - from your Photographer's Comments, I cannot tell.
Comments, Score & Placement Review
390/403 is quite low down the pack and your 5.2 average from your commenters seems to reflect their comments, some of which seem to be especially helpful.
Perhaps cropping out the spectators and going for a more abstract/movement type of image may have produced something that held more interest but as is, I suspect it didn't hold people's attention long enough because of the busyness and slight snapshot feel to the image.
