All I got to say is this:
June 7th - 7:25 est Argentina vs. England
Personally, I hope England does well for no other reason than that if they don't, poor Sven-Göran is gonna get such a beating in the press he'll wish he was back in the days of the Ulrika connection.
The full commercial was released on the net quite awhile ago. Check out nikefootball.com
Cameroon and Ireland tie 1-1. I only saw the 2nd half which was quite entertaining, although the TSN crew were saying that the first half wasn't so good.
Should've been 2-2!
Denmark and Uruguay on now, still 0-0.
I highly enjoyed the Cameroon game. Yet another great clash of styles.
I think Cameroon was the better side but you have to hand it to the Irish, they are missing their best player and yet they hung in there and gave as good as they got.
I did not enjoy the Uruguay - Denmark game all that much as I hate the styles of both sides. AC Milan must be smiling when their newest recruit bags 2 in his first WC game
Damn, I can't believe that the US does not play until Wednesday. I am nervous already!
As for picture quality, ESPN and ESPN2 still suck, while Univision was very good again this morning.
It is 6:58am and I just finished watching 2 live soccer games. This is very wierd
And a 3rd is about to start!
I enjoyed the Denmark - Uruguay. Best goal of the tournament thus far was the strike from Dario Rodriguez. That goal from Matt Holland was pretty good also. Most of the goals that Germany had scored were great but the opposition made it looked more impressive than it shouldn't been due to the quality of the defensive team. It has been an excellent two day so far. Looking forward to the England - Sweden match tonight.
Argentina-Nigeria is going to be good, I love the Nigerian attacking style, it's fairly similar to Senegals, except with a better caliber of soccer.
Do not forget guys that in less than two hours we can watch this:
Argentina vs Nigeria
If they play their best, it could be one of the best games of the tournament.
Well guys, you've talked enough about it; I'm going to try to get into it. I'm just about to watch South Africa vs Paraguay.
England SUUUUUUUUUUUUCKKKKKKED in the second half. The play was scrappy. They didn't move the ball around properly. The strikers weren't getting any support from the midfielders. Very disappointing. Danny Mills: Things don't look good. We won't make the next round. Big surprise.
The Argentina/Nigeria game was excellent. The movement of the ball had energy, which was sorely lacking from England's preformance. I expect both teams will go far in this tournament.
I enjoyed the England-Sweden game very much. I was expecting England to win 2-1 and hoping for a draw. The second half though was incredible after Sweden scored, it felt really close to a second goal there a few times.
I watched Ireland vs Cameroon on ABC yesterday, and the picture quality was AWFUL. Everuthing was fuzzy and murky. Did anyone else have this problem?
The Sweden-England game on Univision was better quality.
Sweden sucked in the first half, England in the second, so I think 1-1 was fair.
Was the South Africa/Paraguay game outcome already decided or somewhat of a laguher? No one seems to be commenting on that particular game for some reason. I watched about half of it and fell asleep.
Argentina/Nigeria was a great game. Argentina clearly deserved the win and has a good chance of winning the cup. My only problem was with the keeper, he did not seem very convincing, even on a day that there were not many real threats. Let's see how he does in more difficult matches.
Nigeria was good but not as great as they used to be a couple of years ago.
South Africa is like 300-1 to win the cup, I thought they looked bad the whole game and obviously only tied because of a BAD call. Paraguay just got lazy :-/ On another note: If you are watching on ESPN2/ESPN/ABC, dont. It's a rebroadcast of the Univision Feed and it's not even full bandwidth. The difference between the Univision feed and the ESPN feed is HUGE. The color saturation and detail are VERY VERY noticeable.
