Brazil 3 - Chile 0


Brazil just scored their 3rd goal...30 minutes still remaining.


Brazil and Argentina make it look easy.


That would be a great final: Argentina v. Brazil

As they say in Spanish: Ghana gana.

Interesting that every quarterfinal match features a team from South America. Two huge matchups:

Brazil v. Netherlands
Argentina v. Germany

I also like that one of Ghana or Uruguay will be playing the last weekend. It would be huge for citizens from either country.

I know that this will probaby be laughed at bUT there is going to be an Englishman in the final of the world cup .. lol.

The referee is English - JUST THINK OF ALL OF THAT POWER IN HIS HANDS - he can decide whether the ball has actually gone into the net - he can blow his watch and look at his whistle whenever he likes---- I feel a little bit excited about this.....

I had to smile when I read a comment in a newspaper yesterday about that goal that England scored against Germany, but the match officials disallowed as they did not see it. No...I was not smiling because the goal was disallowed, because I believe in justice (and truth) and firmly believe that this was a goal and the goal would have been allowed if FIFA had conceded to use goalline technology.

Rather, I was smiling about the person who made the comment. England's World Cup hero of 1966, Geoff Hurst, commented that FIFA should use the latest technology in such situations. This was the same Geoff Hurst who scored a hattrick against the then West Germany in the 1966 final, including that much disputed 3rd goal which he scored that hit the bar and then bounced over the goalline (or perhaps did not). Anyway the officials allowed that goal and England consequently won the 1966 World Cup.

I bet Geoff did not say that they should have used goalline technology in 1966. It was this thought that brought the smile upon my face.

Holland 2 - Brazil 1

The favourites and 5 times winner of the WC crashed out...committed suicide to be more exact.

In the first half Brazil were cruising, lead 1-0 from a Robinho goal and could have had more had it not been for a couple of fantastic saves by the Dutch goalie, Stekelenburg...first from a curving shot from Kaka destined for the keeper's top left corner, later from a low shot from Maicon was fingertipped around the post for which the ref never even gave a corner.

The Dutch had not had a look in until they got a freak o.g. early in the second half that seemed to stun the Brazilians. Sneijder crossed from the left and Julio Cesar, in trying to punch clear, only succeeded in colliding with Felipe Melo and the ball flicked off his team-mate's head and flew into the net. Perhaps Cesar did not call for the ball...perhaps his call was not heard because of the din from those fucking vuvuzelas? Whatever the reason for the mix up, the ball ended up in the Brazil net against the run of play.

Holland's second again was a defender's nightmare, as Kuyt flicked on Robben's corner at the near post only for 5 foot 7 inch Sneijder to head it to the back of the net as the Brazilian defenders seemed to be fast asleep. Brazil were now inexplicably chasing the game with just over 20 minutes to go, when things went from bad to worse. Felipe Melo, still probably upset by his o.g. showed a total lack of discipline by stamping on Robben after conceding a free kick...the result, a straight red card, sent off by the hopeless Japanese ref. I say hopeless as the Dutch player, Van Bommel "kicked lumps" out of the Brazilian strike force for most of the game yet never even received a yellow card, never mind a red one. Not for the first time an official has not shown consistency.

Anyway, with a man short and a goal down, it was inevitable that Brazil would go out and Holland proceed to the semi-finals, more because of what Brazil done, than what they themselves actually done.

As I have known all my life from playing football, watching football and coaching youth sides, if you do not have luck on your side you are as good as gone.

Another Quarter Final:

Ghana 1 - Uruguay 0 (half-time)

Ghana's unexpected success continues...but can they add to Muntari's goal in the 2nd half???????
