27 June 2010 – Day 17

So can I give up the day job and become a football pundit? Yesterday, I went for Uruguay and Ghana. In the afternoon kick-off, Uruguay did me proud and came through the 90 minutes in the rain at the less than full Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. As with so many of this tournaments games it […]

25 June 2010 – Day 15

Group F kicked off the afternoon fixtures, with various permutations possible. Paraguay needed a draw against New Zealand to progress. However, if the All Whites won that game, then they would be through. Holders Italy needed to beat Slovakia to be certain of going through, but knew a draw would be enough if New Zealand […]

24 June 2010 – Day 14

“…Que sera sera, what ever will be will be, we’re into the last 16, que sera, sera…”  Credit where credit is due. The pressure was on the England team and the management and they came through it.

23 June 2010 – Day 13

In Group A, going into the game Uruguay and Mexico knew that if they drew they would both progress to the last 16. Anybody for a draw then? However, that would have meant Mexico finishing as runners-up and a probable meeting with Argentina in the knock-out stages. A win for either side would have given […]
