Swan dive from Adriano and a deserved yellow card for that.

Arse. Thats some serious minus points for my fantasy team as hes my captain today.

I notice Adriano also looks a lot heavier than when he impressed me in the confederations last year. I think Ronaldo is convincing him to sneak out with him to that all you can eat buffet when everyone is asleep.

Now you too can play like a Brazilian. Just look at the envious glances you will get from your mates when you turn up to the park on Sunday with your yellow Nike replica shirt and a set of these gnashers ready to emulate all your Brazilian heroes.

Brazil getting lucky. Ghana had a shot on goal and it only didn't go in because it hit the keepers feet and now Adriano gifted a goal when he was offside.

Marcello Balboa just said he is " not impressed with Brazil at all".
Let's see.............. played 4, won 4 scored 10 goals, allowed 1, and
Ronaldo broke Gerd Muller's record today

If Ghana actually learns to get a shot on target and convert one of their 50 chances per match.. they might be a force to be reckoned with.

It is in our culture to ridicule what we don't understand. Also, to wear ugly clothes and speak loudly when we visit other countries

And I don't care HOW many WCs Balboa has played in. I seem to know more about the soul of the game than he does, and I've only been following the game for 2 years!

Ok, so bare with me..this is a huge hypothetical but i am going to pose it anyway...better to be prepaed.

So, i had the next 2 weeks after July 4th weekend booked off work. The plan was if the boys get thru the quarter.. to buy some very expensive last minute ticket home.. to watch the semis and perhaps even the final...but with the car accident this weekend costing me so much moolah and the time off work not looking good.. it looks like i'm going to have to cancel that plan.

So.. lets suppose we beat portugal..then *ahem* beat Brazil in the semis.. and i'm stuck state side.. i'll be buggered if i'm staying home or going to another local "sports bar" to watch england in a world cup final.

So, what would be your plans for final day if we made it? I'd be willing to get a domestic flight to somewhere where theres a good collection from BE..i propose we pick a loction and all head there for the weekend for one huge piss up.

Still some good signs: Ghana got a couple of shots in and the Brazil keeper can't keep hold of the ball. I reckon when they get a really serious test, which they haven't had up until now we'll see how dodgy their defence is.

Predicts - All the three's:
The top 3 all went for a 3-nil. mattbutt, thedog and mickmills all get 3 points. Matt still top by 3.

They would have done better to get a basketball or hockey commentator and cross-train them.... more and faster action.

Funny how they do all these human-interest pieces during the Olympics, about backgrounds of rivalries or individual players, but they can't seem to come up with anything relevant to the incestuous world of football (who has been on the same professional side, rivalries between countries and their origins in previous WCs or UEFAs, coaches and their nationalities and professional careers and how that meshes with the team they are coaching, I could go on.....)

or hell, just follow the Mexican model and describe the play in minute detail at one million words per minute like a ferocious auctioneer, at least it's more interesting!

Anybody got Univision on at the moment.
All I can say is WTF...
They have the latino version of Jillan Barberie on (throaty shouty bird who does the weather on Fox's NFL coverage) and this big fat bloke. No, bigger than Robbie Ronaldo. A real lard ass.

So to the Spain v France game then and I think this one will get ugly.



Alright I'll give it a rest.
The ugly footballer competition is null and void. I couldn't find anything even close that could compete with him. Give him the trophy.

The match - my armchair pundit view is a close one and maybe extra time.

Close, but he doesn't beat Ronaldinho's chompers! In other words, I'd rather be kissed by that man than ronaldinho

EDIT: My prediction: Spain over England by 1 goal, and it will be low-scoring and dirty.
