World Cup Update
The First Round of matches for all the teams are over and it was really good to see teams like Angola , Ghana , Ivory Coast and lots more performing well on the big stage . It has also been disappointing to see teams who were considered as favourites under perform . First of all lets take a look at England , although they won there match , they didnt show that flair and attack that is needed to be the champions . Even Holland and Portugal didnt show much potential till the final whistle . But we saw some good performances from Italy , Argentina , Czech Republic , Australia , Spain . The best team performance which i saw from a winning team was that of czechs 3-0 win over USA . Now after that win , they could be considered as one of the favourites to reach the last four . The most impressive performance from a first timer was that of Trinidad and Tobago . Despite of playing almost the entire 2nd half with 10 men , they managed to get a draw with Sweden thanks to the wonderful goalkeeping of Shaka hislop . Even the Croatian team played well against the mighty Brazil and could have managed a draw . Now the next round of matches are about to begin and we can expect some more of this Wonderful action and lets hope we do see some surprises . That is the beauty of the beautiful game . According to me the favourites stand as (in order)
- Czech Republic
