Don't want to see an early exit for Germany the most voted team on this thread. Hope they score at least two in second half. They were fantastic in first 15 minutes of game.

Edit: One already came

Fantastic goal. Sweden were playing for a draw and never bothered to attack.

Correct the good thing was unlike Argentina they didn't loose hope and were trying hard to convert each n every chance even with 10 men. I think Argentina will definitely do a comeback after watching this game.

Sweden never bothered to attach right from the beginning. They were just trying to defend their goal. Germany had 70% of ball possession. Germany knew that their defence is untested with just the new man Rüdiger and Boateng. There was no Hummels or Khedira. So they were all out offensive in their attack and this played well for Germany.

Another high scoring match. England vs Panama and score is 4-0 in first half, lets see how it ends.

Edit: Penalty + yellow card at 44th minute score stands at 5-0 now.

You meant England play Belgium not in the round of 16, but in the match day 3 of 3!

I guess the England vs Belgium is the only high voltage match in the final league rounds!

Mexico Vs. Sweden could get tasty in Group F. Group wide open with all four sides still in with a chance to progress, though Korea's is a long shot.

Russia vs Uruguay, Denmark vs France, Argentina vs Nigeria, Mexico vs Sweden and even Serbia vs Brazil would be equally exciting, ain't it?

Japan doing well as of now against Senegal. It is all about temperament and hence I wish the best to win.

Edit: What a chip pass senegal leads by 2 goal.

Don't char me to death, it's just a wild thought. Now that we have seen many a matches, I would like to compare the quality of ISL and Indian football to the world cup.

Somehow or other, I seem more glued to ISL than this edition of the world cup, maybe mostly because of "parking the bus" style of defence by many a team. The ball is not being put much into the "corridor of uncertainty", not much corners are converted, lots of shots get off target by whisker, and miss-passes are happening with many a team. But definitely counter attacks are superb in the world cup.

Maybe it is just a feeling, but I feel India could have beaten this Saudi Arabia. Saudi is 5th in Asia and India 14th. Saudi is 67th in the FIFA ranking and India 97th.

Maybe we should discuss this in the other football thread. Would definitely like to see Sunil and India in a World Cup!

Oh how I was wishing Germany were sent home. Damn. A lucky goal has given them hope. Remaining group matches - some of them will be interesting.

England whipped Panama pretty bad. Their greatest strength was in their ability to convert set-pieces, which has been the norm for them, in this WC. Panama's inexperience kinda showed in the way their players committed one foul after the other.
