One Thing I just noticed , if Ecuador wins tomorrow like 2-0 , and they manage to get a draw with germany , they are gonna be 1st in the group . Funny coz , now I remember U2@Arg's comment about Ecuador's luck in the group , anyway the big thing is .......... There's this good chance of Germany end in 2nd on the group , and if so , and if things go normal on Group B , We will already have a

GERMANY X ENGLAND

On the round of 16 I can smell the classic already.

After seeing Spain today, I will have to put them as the best team of the tournemment so far, although Ukraine were unlucky with the penalty. Tunisia v S.Africa was another entertaining match. I would like S.Africa to qualify for the second round, considering they would have been hosting the tournement this year if it wasn't for some underhand bribary of FIFA officials during the bidding process. I think all of the African teams have played really well so far,

The first half of the Germany-Poland match was dull.

Well, so far German players have scored 5 goals, English none. Hope does spring eternal though.

Hopefully we will get the meeting you wish for, Germany/England in big tournaments over the the last 39 years always ends up the right way.......namely.......



Face paint - £5.
Football shirt - £40.
The look on their faces when they get knocked out of yet another tournament...
PRICELESS.

Nothing really unfair about it.... Japan played abysmally for most of the game. A poor effort from a team I do admire. I was hoping they would snag 2nd spot in the group, but that seems unlikely now.

Seems like someone forgot to tell you that football is a contact sport. Injuries, and especially serious ones, are expected to and do happen. Take Cisse for example.

I'll probably be dismissed as bias, but there was absolutely nothing illegitimate about the way Australia played. If there was, we got punished. 4 yellow cards, and we are now considering resting Neill and Moore, our two best defenders (in an otherwise weak defence) for the Brazil game.

Some attack Australia's aggressive approach to the Dutch match in which 4 first team players sustained injuries. In the end, all players were fine by the Serbia-Montenegro match, and were only really classified as injured and taken off as a precautionary measure.

I think most football purists would agree that the physically aggressive attack on the ball (Which WAS on the ball, not on the man as some like to suggest) is a greater team attribute than the blatant diving that was exhibited by Japan against Australia, and of which has been almost perfected by players such as Christiano Ronaldo, a few Spanish and South American players and some of the Togolese against Korea Rep. among many others.

Players should always be attempting to get and take possession of the ball. Legs might be broken, shins might be bruised, but as long as the physical aggression is legal and in accordance with the laws outlined by FIFA, physical aggression is and should be part and parcel of the beautfiul game. That's football. Not being ineffectively fancy or diving around like Chantele Newbery.

Japan should have had a penalty in the last 10 minutes, I'll agree with that, but at the end of the day, Australia's physically aggressive approach was all fair and legal, and for many neutrals I've heard from, fun to watch.

Even the Poms have often been associated as being a hard, somewhat violent side, yet no one whinges about them.


If you don't like legitimate physical contact in a physical contact sport, go play basketball or some other wimps game like that....

I thought the entire Germany-Poland match was fantastic. Who said these two sides play dour football?

Klinsmann has his critics, and perhaps rightfully so, but I'm enjoying watching this German side. Schweinsteiger, Frings and Podolski are all livewires, and Ballack is endlessly entertaining to watch. He'll probably prove ineffective at Chelsea though and his career may be left in ruins, especially as he is approaching 30.

Spain were the 2nd most impressive team after the first set of matches I reckon, just behind the Czechs. Ukraine were very poor, I hope Saudi or Tunisia advance to the Second Round cause it would be good for either the CAF or AFC, and Ukraine will probably prove ineffective and will just make up the numbers. Might come up against the French or Koreans and could get smashed. Korea impressed me with their second half performance. Togo were admirable but undisciplined.

The Ecuador-Costa Rica game could be a classic. I'm hoping T&T do to England what they did to Sweden. C'mon Shaka! Also, I wouldn't mind seeing Paraguay defeat Sweden.

Netherlands - Ivory Coast could be the best match of the group stage.....bring it on.

I want some shocks, dammit. The Senegals and Cameroons of years past haven't really come out to play yet.
