It wasn't a red card but two yellows. And Estrada simply had it coming. He should've been sent off a few minutes earlier, when he fouled a player yet again.

Also speaking of "avoiding the ban": How on earth did Villa not get banned? He clearly hit an opposite player in the face in the match against Honduras, so why wasn't he banned for that? The FIFA should stick to their own rules and not privilege one team over any other team...

And Argentina despite having a somewhat shaky defense are still my picks to reach the finals on the other half of the bracket. I think they can easily handle Mexico, a weak Germany/England, and have a good enough team to match Spain, assuming they play them.

Also assuming that the big Europens teams keep playing like they played before...


But the knockout rounds are when all of the pretenders get eliminated and now we finally get to see some real intense, quality playing. There's no more playing for ties and everything is on the line in these games. I can't wait for the matches to start.

Also, I just noticed that Brazil's work is really easy until the final..on paper, at least.
But I think that someone is going to have a surprise win against them.Spain...hm, they will definitely make it to the semifinals, but after that, I dunno...Agrentina will probably lose against Germany IF they face each other...
But, once again, anything can happen.

Lol Germans in the back of a cattle car driven by a black African, scared for their lives and curious as to what's about to happen.

While the three lions roam free :')

Anyway I'm still looking forward to it. Got to love playing the 'old enemy'. There is just something 'romantic' about England vs Germany, and considering our history together I tend to think we're all quite nice about it. Besides having a few laughs of course..

But whatever you do, don't mention the war.

Oh well, now the real deal begins...

I'll be cheering for Uruguay against South Korea. I like their football, and I want as many South American teams on the quarter finals as possible, to show how much we are AWESOME.

As for yesterday's Brazil vs. Portugal... eh, I expected at least a goal. I thought Nilmar was going to do really well in the second half, judging from his first half, but we couldn't get the ball to him, since we were playing more defensively in the second. It was a pretty rough match, but it cooled down in the second half, when Felipe Melo was changed. He's a freaking horse!

And we have Chile ahead now, and they will play without three of their starters. It won't be easy, though...

Psyched for the second round! England-Germany is tensing up. It could seriously go any way I think. Good luck to the American fans - I can't really make a prediction on that game either.

Yeah, from what I've seen and heard, the England-Germany rivalry is really more of an in-joke to football fans, because the cores of both fan bases just love the football and the humour that goes along side it. Of course, everyone gets passionate about it, but it's hardly angry in the majority of cases. It's a gentlemanly relationship, often with lots of beer involved. My Dad described the atmosphere inside and outside the arena during a UEFA Cup Bolton-Bayern Munich game (which Bolton won 2-2) as one of the best he's known, and the lamer chants were shot down by the Bolton fans themselves.

Wait, no! I was doing us all a favour!

YES! 1-0 Uruguay!

Although this goal was plain foolery in Korea's defence. They simply let the ball pass by, just staring at it, while Suárez was standing there all alone! Also, nice perseverance play by Forlan.

This promises to get even better! :)

Half time: Uruguay 1, South Korea 0.

Not a bad game so far. As others have said above, the goal was well developed with some good play between Forlan and Suarez, but it was ultimately down to defensive and goalkeeping blunders. It's somewat clear that the central defense is where SK's weakness is. SK have a quick-paced attack, but it's largely been all bark and no bite so far - there's not much in the way of concluding what they're doing. They've managed to keep it up, but when Uruguay get some breathing space, they become dangerous. A controversial not-handball call in favour of SK should provide some food for thought.

SK will be wanting to maintain these tactics methinks, to draw on their set piece skill.

What a huge mistake by the Korean defenders and goalkeeper at that goal. You can't permit to make mistakes like that in the knock-out phase.

Good finish by Suarez by the way. Yes, it was at an open goal, but at a fairly difficult angle and he had to shoot at once. I believe it was a slightly bouncing pass too, so it's more difficult than it looks to score such a goal.

Anyway, this match can still go anywhere, but I expect Uruguay to win.

Goal South-Korea!!!

The defender and goalie didn't look too good there. Would be nice if this game ended up in a penalty shoot-out (I love penalty shoot-outs).

Nothing beats flicking over from watching some great tennis to watching a free kick that results into a goal.

I'm glad they scored.

Come on South Korea!

What a shocker from Suarez, possibly a candidate for miss of the tournament to rival the sitter Yakubu missed. I know that he rushed it because he perhaps thought he was offside, but that shouldn't be an excuse, basic rule of thumb is play to the whistle. He had ample time and space to control the ball and bury it, but he fluffed it.

Also I don't see why Forlan is taking the Uruguayan corners, after all of anyone in their squad you'd think he should be in the box being a threat.

From a miss of the tournament to possible goal of the tournament, I take it all back, Suarez completely and utterly made up for that miss and more, WHAT A GOAL!!!

I've a soft spot for both teams so whatever the result I'll be a bit disappointed, now SK have 10 minutes to give themselves a chance...

Secretly hoping for penalties...

2-1 Uruguay!

Great goal by Luis Suarez. He didn't play that well in the first two games, but he's starting to play better and better.

With that, I think Uruguay might have one of the most dangerous striker-duo's of the tournament.

That was quite possibly one of the greatest twists of the tournament so far. Good work Suarez and Uruguay, 2-1. Again, Suarez was left too open by the defenders.

As much as I speak quite highly of South Korea, they'll struggle greatly to try and harvest something now.

Also, look at the state of the pitch!

No Strongbow for you, groundsman.

Yeah I noticed that in round 3 of the group stage the pitches were starting to look pretty bad and apparently it is only getting worse as the tournament progresses.

Maybe the African climate isn't that suitable for grass fields.

It's over, Uruguay won.

I don't like to see South-Korea leave, but I wouldn't like to see Uruguay leave at this stage either. I think Uruguay deserved the win, and I can see them getting all the way to the semi-finals if they keep playing like this. Maybe even make the final.

Every time England plays against Germany it's the same old "the enemy" and "the germs" and "the nazis" and "don't mention the war". Those things where old 30 years ago already.
