Result:Slovakia 0 Paraguay 2
           Italy 1 New Zealand 1

Due to the Fathers Day we are having in the UK i didn't see todays matches apart from the last 20 minutes of Italys game.Another surprise result but from what i saw at least Italy gave it some spirit in their attempt for a winner.

I think you guessed right the Paraguay result...

yeah, we gave some spirit but without a champ we are liable not to score so easily. Pirlo might resolve some of our problems but this remains a second-class team. As everybody said from the start.

Well i think pretty much all of the top European teams are underperforming at the moment.Apparently there has been some real disquiet in the England camp about Capello's system and players playing out of position and they had a behind closed door meeting last night to thrash out the problems.If this is true a similar scenario happened back in Italia 90 when player power forced Bobby Robson to change his tactics and as a result we did quite well.I'm not so sure if Capello is too stubborn to allow such a thing now.

Result:Brazil 3 Ivory Coast 1

Yeah, but Capello was apparently infallible until the last 2 matches and now he doesn't have a clue to what's happening? I don't believe it.

I suggest no one ever mentions again the fact that at some point a so called French team took part, anyhow, to that tournament.

Yes England don't have any problems compared to what the French camp are going through but i think there was some discontent there before the tournament even started.

I don't see how Capello could possibly go from the "best thing in years to happen to English football" to a bad manager in the space of 2 matches either.Surely the English FA would never have just extended his contract as any rumblings of disharmony would leak out somehow.The team played down last nights meeting as a clear the air session where they looked at the Algeria to examine what went wrong and nothing else.It is fairly typical of England to start slowly so i suspect that if we beat Slovenia on Wednesday everything will be hunky dory again.

Well, like everybody says here, some "cleaning" SHOULD have been done after 2006, or, at least, after 2008.

Very fun game to watch. After the 3rd goal, the portugese where laughing while playing. And I think the north korean team will be experiencing some trouble back home.

I heard that all the North Korean "fans" are in fact Chinese people paid to support them as their regime is too oppressive to allow their own people out of the country. ::)
