World Cup 2006 : Knockout Begins



The World Cup Round of 16 negins today and from now on there is no room for error . The most notable matches include France Vs Spain and Portugal Vs Holland .  Last week we had some surprise and some Bloopers as well . Ghana played some very good footbal and qualified for the next round . Everyone expected France to deliver this time but they played poorly and managed to qualify last night . Spain , who are considered as Underdogs have played some Wonderful football and can be considered as favourites . Italy who have an easy route to the Semifinals now can also be considered as favourites as they have got a very good team spirit among them . Ronaldo who answered his critics by scoring twice against Japan have made the Brazilians look more powerful .  There was an incident which will go then in History , when refree Graham Poll booked a player thrice before sending him off .

So lets hope for some best football and some surprises over the next week .
