    Match # 11

    Italy – Paraguay: 1-1

    This is the first game that I didn’t watch in the World Cup, I just had to enjoy the sunshine outside instead. Andy and I took the boat out and enjoyed the evening in the sun and had a watery pick-nick.

    I did however keep tabs on the game, just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. The game as I understand wasn’t anything special, much like the rest of the World Cup games – Unfortunetly. Italy usually surprise and make football very beautiful, but this game didn’t really excite at all. It seemed like a fairly even game and the outcome showed that. Although the Italian manager was slightly annoyed and said that Italy had played so much better and therefore should have been rewarded with more goals. With possession being 52% vs 48% I think a tied game is pretty much fair…

    Paraguays goal was quite delicate though….and the Italian goal was less great, but a goal is a goal…

    Match # 10

    Japan – Cameroon: 1-0

    A game that really didn’t seem to be going the right way. Everyone thought Cameroon were going to win, they are after all a fairly good team. Descendants of Roger Milla (the first football player to celebrate a goal by making a goal gesture) and all…

    Japan took the lead after 39 minutes by Honda, and then they kept the lead. Cameroon tried and tried but alas it didn’t do much good…

    Match # 9

    The Netherlands – Denmark: 2-0

    The game was somewhat of a drag with a great Dutch team, with a way of playing that makes you smile. Denmark as close to Sweden as we can come in this World Cup. Denmark also are a team not to underestimate. They have their moments and a game that usually surprises. But The Netherlands, didn’t really have anything to worry about. Most of the match was played by The Netherlands, although Denmark gave them a match. To bad about Poulsens own goal, although he took it well, with a smile. And then the second goal was nice rebound by Kuyt.

    But we’re missing Rudd

    The Offside Rule!

    I think I can finally explain the offside rule to women with a life like example that they can relate too. Since the offside rule is crutial too football, it will be important that people who dont normally watch football get a perspective of it.

    You’re in a shoe shop, second in the queue for the cashier. Behind the cashier is a pair of shoes which you have seen and which you must have….

    The female shopper in front of you has seen them also and is eyeing them with desire. Both of you have forgotten your purses. It would be rude to push in front of the first woman if you had no money to pay for the shoes.

    The cashier remains at the till waiting.

    Your friend is trying on another pair of shoes at the back of the shop and sees your dilemma. She prepares to throw her purse to you. If she does so, you can catch the purse, then walk round the other shopper and buy the shoes! At a pinch she could throw the purse ahead of the other shopper and ”whilst it is in flight” you could nip around the other shopper, catch the purse and buy the shoes!

    BUT, you must always remember that until the purse has ”actually been thrown”, it would be plain wrong for you to be in front of the other shopper and you would be OFFSIDE! 

    No?

    Match # 8

    Germany – Australia: 4-0

    I love watching Germany play football, they have a way that just wants to make you join them. It’s not Brazil’s Samba football, it’s German stiffness and push that is always successful. Unfortunetly Ballack was injured and Matteus and Klinsman are old farts – so the team is young, the World Cups youngest – but they showed that the German spirit lives on. Australia isn’t a football nation, more of a rugby nation, but they do have quite a few players playing in the Premier League and my ALL TIME favorite player HARRY KEWELL is Australian. Unfortunetly for me Kewell didn’t play last night and unfortunetly for Australia, Germany scored 4 awesome goals…



    The game was brilliant, we’ll at least Germany was brilliant =)

    Match # 7

    Serbia – Ghana: 0-1

    An extremely boring game, sure quite a few goal opportunities but not much to make a footballer excited. A correct decision for a penalty kick for Ghana produced the only goal, scored by Gyan. That’s pretty much all I’m going to say about the game – not too exciting…

    Match # 6

    Algeria – Slovenia: 0-1

    Well then, a truly boring game with none of the usual football excitement, not even a couple of chances to make an impact. The Slovenian goal was a joke and the Algerian goalkeeper Gaouaoui did a Green, but a touch worse. He just perfected the Green, that from now on might be called a Gaouaoui instead.

    And Algeria’s Ghezzal’s hand of god try failed miserably – what the hell was he thinking? Atleast he’ll have the time to think about it since he was given a RED CARD!

    Pre-game comments from Nick Leeson.

    Our correspondents:

    Rumors/comments regarding Algeria-Slovenia:
    “Unbelievable, within 24 hours we have another bathroom slippery soap incident, the Algerian goalkeeper that kept Africa’s best football team at bay during the qualification, now let the soap slip between his hands against Slovenia. I am sure that the Pharaoh’s regretted that they didn’t take these kind of soft shoots against him during those matches.
    Rumors has it that FIFA has called for an extra executive board meeting to discuss the world cup ball; there are short odds of actually replace the existing footballs with full size beach balls just to save the goal keepers more embarrassments. Mrs Hambeck fully supports this idea and has received a nod from Sip Bladder “.
