There was lot of drama towards the end of the round1 of the World Cup. These are the kind of stories which makes for good reading and viewing. The North Koreans gave a scare to the Brazilians and the Swiss shocked the Spanish team and the whole world.
Kaka was non-existent in the match against the Koreans as he mis-passed and virtually contributed nothing to the match. The Koreans defended stubbornly and it took Maicon to break their defence and score. The Koreans showed no fear in the big stage. Hope the team to do well in the remaining matches.
The Swiss gave a good defensive lesson to the Spanish team. They passed around brilliantly but could not find the net. I had David Villa in my fantasy team and he was a bad pick 😦 Hope they bounce back in the last 2 matches.
Argentina brought the World Cup to life in the 2nd round with a 4-1 win against a resolute South Korea. Higuain scored the first hat-trick of this World Cup. Messi was mesmerising as usual. The defensive frailities in this Argentine team was there on display in the goal that they conceded.
Germany got their stock of the shock when they got beat by the Serbians. There were too many cards with a red card being handed out to Miroslav Klose. Podolski missed a penalty. There was all drama in the match which ended up in a defeat to the high flying Germans.
Let me not talk about the pathetic pathetic French team and not as bad but still pathetic England team.
