SirAlec,

I circumvent the problem of simultaneous matches by picking the one match which is a must watch (e.g., Germany-Ghana) and then flipping to the other channel (surreptitiously) to check on the state of play /score if its a tight group ( as in the case of Group C).

I wish the following could make it to the last four ( based on form and my sentiments) : Argentina, Netherlands, Germany, Brazil. I can't comment on Spain as I've not seen them enough to form an opinion, although they've been one of the ( if not the) pre-tournament favourites.

Another must watch is the Brazil -Portugal tie.

P.S. : Where are you located? Queen of the hills suggests a Kanchenjunga connexion, whereas you seem to be very familiar with the Manchester of the East, going by your posts on its exotics and places to have Mughlai cuisine; methinks you lived for some time in the latter and then proceeded to the verdant environment around Kanchenjunga. Am I correct?

Default Sir Alec, hats off...........

Good to see the passion for the game Sir Alec,

Thanks for all the listings every day makes it easier for us net heads.

@Isisgonis - I would love to see a all continenet final for example.

Argentina Vs. South Korea and Spain Vs. Ghana

Dream Final - Spain Vs. Argentina

I am rooting for Spain, although Argentina do come a close second.
But I have a feeling that we will have a first time winner this year.

Group C topper USA will face Ghana in knockout stage on 26th June.

Group D topper Germany will face England in knockout stage on 27th June.

Despite their best effort and an entertaining match (ignoring some referee goof ups, which is plenty in this World Cup) Australia is out of the competition.

One of the very few occasion when loosing and winning team both celebrated. As Ghana slipped through due to goal difference.

England really need to put their act together as they will no way go through next stage with this sort of Game.

Bob Bradleys who unlike Maradona is very silent and nonreactive even jumped when his teams topped the chart today beating Algeria.

Australia, Slovenia, Algeria and Serbia is out of the tournament.

What I observed about this World Cup is that the quality of game and players, they have come down a lot. There are few quality goals, they are blaming on the ball but its just utter rubbish. Pele, Platini, Rijkard and those whole lot did do magic with balls that were made with primitive technology.

Its better less said about the standard of referees.

Maybe players are now more commercialized. I feel it does not matter if their team/country wins or loose they are paid well.

Group G is interesting. Brazil and Portugal is a definite contender for knockout stage. But Ivory coast has a slight chance.
Fate of Drogba's Ivory Coast depends on Brazil beating Portugal and Ivory Coast defeating DPRK with a good margin. Draw will also kick both DPRK and Ivory Coast out of competition.

Default 27th June (Day Seventeen) Knockout Stage Result

Argentina 3:1 Mexico

Germany 4:1 England

Argentina will face Germany in the 2nd Quarter Final on 3rd July.

Again what a disappointing decisions by referees.

The first Argentinian goal did a lot to lower the morale of Mexico. After that goal Mexico started loosing concentration. Messi I think is the most hyped player of this WC. He plays such a selfish game trying to score for himself, in the process looses out to defenders.
What a clean and outstanding goal by Tevez and Hernandez.

As always England, most overrated teams filled with footballers who are more interested in their WAGS rather than love for the Game. They deserved to be out long before.
