It'll only be a travesty if they keep this up. It's more of a Marathon than a sprint. Spain got off to the same kind of start in the last World cup.

The centre of their defense is a bit suspect. If they come up against a tough defensive team with counterattacking capability they could struggle.

Anyone remember Brazil 1982 ? An offense much better than the dutch have right now, but when they came up against a good defensive team who could also attack when needed they were in trouble.

A team like Sweden could give them problems in the 1/4-finals, I think.

Wow. That was a truly brilliant piece of Barthezery by the Greek goalkeeper there.

I'm not watching this one. Well, I watched the first half, more or less. But I have better things to do with my time. This isn't a top match, in my book.

The match today between Portugal and Switzerland should just be cancelled. What a waste of time, money and effort.

And after Greek goalie, the otherwise very good Chech goalie makes a costly mistake. What a comeback for Turkey after being down 2-0, and unnecessary shove by their goalie.

although i rooted for the czechs i am in a way delighted to see yet another team be punished for trying to dig themselves down and hold on to a lead.

I only saw the first 30 minutes of the match and then decided to do some better things with my time. Guess I missed quite a spectacle...
