I'm not watching the game, ut I think they just scored because of blaring horns and screaming people outside...

Another goal, that seals it.

My snarky comment aside, the Dutch have improved their attack, especially with Elia. The Danes have just fizzled out. There had to be a second goal at some point.

And it was almost 3-0.

Yeah Holland improved their attacks and the Danes lost their strength. I think the current score is fair. Holland deserved the victory, even though they didn't play nearly as well as they could.

Man of the match: Elia

Although he only played for about 20 minutes.

But that's like a quarter of the dutch team! Plus some players used to play for German teams.

Yes, "used to" so I don't like them anymore. :P

Nah, seriously though. The dutch have a great team and I hope they get far in the tournament. But I also hope they won't be better than the german team. ;)

Holland just lost their insecurity when Poulsen did the own goal, got fuck all to do with strength or tactics.

I think it's going to be 2-1 Cameroon. Hopefully there will be an early goal in this match.

Surprisingly i was worried about the defence when the game actaully started. But De Jong, Van Bommel, Van Der Wiel...i was really impressed. The attack was quite a letdown though..Van Persie's shots....Elia and Afellay did i really good job. Espcially Elia bringing up the attack and De Jong getting back the ball. Elia was unlucky though with the ball hitting the post, but well done by Kuyt....i just hope robben will recover in time and the rest of the starting attackers ( Vaart, Sneidjer, Persie) get back in top form.

I'm predicting 3-1 Cameroon and the Japanese coach committing seppuku at midfield afterwards.

I agree with the guy who posted above me, it's not exactly the most entertaining game so far, hope this changes before half time.

WOOHOO!! Japan scores!

Anyway, pretty weak game so far, both teams have no idea what to do with the ball, they just mostly make long, unprecise passes. Cameroon better at first, but now Japan is much better.

JAPANESE GOAL!

The commentators are complaining about this game, but it's been better than it sounds. I love how Japan have a disciplined plan - watch how they all react to different modes of play. It's not always effective of course.

Been some exaggerated acting in this game I think :(

Wow, Cameroon plays just horrible... and the Ref is pretty bad as well. There where some scenes where a japanese player fouled a cameroon player but the ref didn't blow his whistle.

Final score, Japan 1, Cameroon 0.

It got better in the second half. Cameroon didn't play greatly at all, and Japan managed to sneak some more attacks in despite their defensive style. First Japanese victory outside of Japan! Woo! Cameroon need to re-organise themselves, especially if they want to get stuff back against Netherlands and Denmark.

If you switched off in the early more boring half, you missed a pretty killer last ten-fifteen minutes.

Interesting last few minutes there. I really want to see a few African teams go through, so I'm a tad disappointed. Well done to Japan though.

The Aussies got there asses flogged 0-4 with a bratwurst by Germany. :( And the ref can shove his red card up his ass.

Looking at all the commentary here I'm glad I skipped most of the match to go studying. I did see the goal and tuned in at the last exciting minutes. Judging from those, it's hard to imagine most of the game was boring.

Anyway Italy - Paraguay is next. I don't know Paraguay's style of play, but I bet they're gonna play defensively just like Italy. I think we're gonna see a 1-0 at most.

Yeah some people said an African team would win the WC this year, but thus far they haven't been playing that well and Ghana is the only team that managed to win a match.

I wonder how far holland will actually come, because around the quarter finals they would have to battle either brazil or argentinia.

Probably Brazil, cuz they will probably become first in their poule too.

They couldn't play Argentina until the semis, they are on the wrong side of the draw. Almost certainly it would be Brazil in the quarters, assuming they both top their groups, though Brazil won't have it all their own way in their group.

Anyway, I was impressed by the Dutch as expected (they were my pre tournament pick to win the whole thing, mainly due to a desire to someone new win the trophy or England, and one of those scenarios is much more likely than the other! I thought the Danes played well too though, especially in the first half. They knew getting anything from that game would be a bonus, but I still think they can beat Japan and Cameroon and take second in that group.

Tonight's game is likely to be dreadful. Italy are on poor form and Paraguay are never the most attack minded side. Hopefully they won't be overawed by their opponents and actually try and win it, rather than feeling that a draw is a good result. Italy are there for the taking.

Too bad I can't keep up with all the matches, since I have classes in the morning... The time when the matches happen in always 8:30, 11:00 and 15:30, while I have classes from 7:10 until 12:40. I even tried my cellphone's radio, but none of the FM stations were airing the game, so I missed both games today... Oh well, at least I get to watch Italy vs. Paraguay.

Which, by the way, should be a pretty interesting game, since both teams have great defenses and effective attacking players. I still don't know if Pirlo will play or not for Italy, and I think he's a key player. And watch out for Santa Cruz in Paraguay.

I'd say this will still end in a draw, maybe 0-0, but still a decent game.

I've never seen Paraguay play football, to be honest, so I can't really estimate what their capabilities are. Italia is pretty good at playing football (they proved that with winning in 2006... they did win that one, right?) so I'm pretty sure that if Paraguay isn't playing well, they'll be screwed. I've pouled 3 - 1, by the way.
