Man, France vs Urugay was booooooring!

But it was funny how Henry was protesting that a defender played the ball with his hand... out of all the players in the french team, Henry should be the one who has to shut up when it comes to protesting a hand ball...

Today we have:
South Korea - Greece
Could be another draw here. Greece with 11 defenders on the pitch and South Korea just isn't good enough to break through. But I think Greece will score a goal, so it's 0:1.

Argentina - Nigeria
Argentina is strong, but they shouldn't underestimate Nigeria. I think the game will end 1:1

England - USA
As much as I'd like the USA to win this match I don't think they'll stand a chance. 3:1

Nope, it was a constant "PWAAAAAAAAAAAAP" 90 minutes long. We have been warned that those Vuvuzelas belong to the south african fan culture, but I didn't imagine it was THAT annoying.

Hopefully the other games are better...
I hope so too, but it looks like the stadium of Uruguay vs France is also filled with those vuvuzela-blowers >=(

Yeah, but it wasn't nearly as loud as it was when South Africa played.

Well, I guess I was wrong here... but this time I like being wrong as I just hate the greece way of playing football.

Greece might be boring to watch, but the South Koreans are a breath of fresh air so far in this tournament- they're fast and skilful and creating chances for fun at the moment. I was a big fan of them in 2002 (the best tournament I've ever had the fortune to witness), and they look even better now.

The teams in group A should be worried about playing them in round 2 should they go through.

Half time - South Korea 1, Greece 0.

Greece's 'frustrating defence' strategy has for the most part not worked very well. The Koreans have energetic strikers, and they've missed more than a few chances; one was destroyed by a particularly moronic ref decision, but... shrug. The Greeks have had one notable chance, thanks to a goalie bungle.

Great to see that early goal, am hoping for an interesting second half.

Nice to see Bolton's lad doing well when he gets it!

Also, you guys are going to hate me for saying this, but the vuvuzelas are growing on me. It might be because this current match has more of a balanced audience dynamic, or because my Dad has a big TV with fairly decent sound, or maybe it's because it's like you're being sedated. I haven't even gotten into the booze yet and I feel mildly euphoric as a result of that ever-lasting humming.

The actual jopke being that the ref was Japanese.

it's been a good match so far, and definetely more interesting then France-Uruguay. i think 2-0 will be the final score.

Final score, 2-0.

Interesting match. South Korea looked as though they really could've gone for a third. Greece showed some sort of appetite for a counter at one point as the Koreans started to get tired (and when they actually started getting experimental), but it went nowhere, and the Koreans started to get juiced again.

Park's goal was good, but yeah, as has already been said, what terrible defending. You can't afford slip-ups like that when facing a quick opposition.

Nice one South Korea.

South Korea-Greece was never going to be a seat-filling bonanza. On ITV, they even said that this was one particular game where tickets weren't selling well form the start.

I think I heard that nearly twice as many tickets had been sold to US fans than England, must be hearing things :/

England hasn't won the world cup in 44 years. Because of this, my mother and I argue about the teams we support. She supports England, I support France. Meh, I'd rather support Denmark or Switzerland, but then everyone would wonder why I'm not supporting my home country.

But, yeah, one of my close friends is American, and she lives in the UK. So she doesn't know who to support for England v USA...no offence, but USA has a better chance than England.

Lol, as good a chance as the US have, they're always going to be the underdogs in this match

If US win it will be an 'upset', if England win it will be 'expected'.

Half time: Argentina 1, Nigeria 0.

Argentina are obviously in control for the most part, but it's hardly the 'domination' people have been talking about. Both teams' weaknesses are in the defense - Nigeria just haven't been able to stick together much of an attack. Great header from Heinze, but I'm possibly more impressed with the Nigerian goalie, some fucking cracking saves so far.

Shot out: I always love the Nigerian fanbase at the World Cup. They're just so enthusiastic.

Nigeria need to change their strategies and focus. Messi comes out of nowhere when at attack is whipped up.

I agree, the goalie has done great so far, and it it wasn't for him Argentina would have scored some nice goals. I really want Nigeria to score in the second half, even if they end up losing.
