World Cup 2

Ow – no!
Well, last Tuesday night I thought that this moment, when Owen’s knee popped out in glorious high-def, was going to signify the end of England’s (albeit slim) World Cup hopes. However, as they used to say in old US sports commentary, it’s not bad to “win ugly”…. and you couldn’t win more ugly than England do at the moment. Another slim victory this afternoon, 1-0 over Ecuador, saw our once mighty nation scramble their way to the quarter finals. The good news is that we’re going to play Portugal who battled through a vaguely ridiculous match of 16 yellow and 4 red cards, and therefore will have suspensions and cautious players aplenty. All in all it has been a great World Cup so far, intriguing games, super goals, and all set up for some pretty fantastic knock-out football…. try and predict the outcome of the Germany vs Argentina 1/4-final! Go on, have a go.
