What we are talking about however is pros at the world cup. Low light is not an issue, focal length is not an issue. The ability to get and keep focus is the single most critical in that scenario. If they are in a different scenario they might use a different camera that was more suitable.
Any pro that insists on using a particular piece of equipment outdoors for action photography simply because that is the piece of equipment they use in a studio should be looking for a new job IMO, because they are clearly incompetent.
The pros will use what is best for sports action, and that is the 1D X. Offer me a 7D Mark II at an event like this and I will politely decline.
