The heat is certainly ON

The heat is certainly ON.The matches so far have been entertaining.One remarkable thing which i noticed is the gap between the big teams like England/Sweden/Holland and the smaller teams like Ecuador/Iran/Paraguay has certainly diminished. No team can take any team lightly. Look what happened to Sweden - could'nt score a goal in 90 minutes.

Germany kicked up the campaign in style by winning against Costa Rica 4-2. It was an open free - flowing attacking game.England were lucky to get away with a win with Paraguay. Owen/Crouch pair is a big flop - guess they have to try Walcott at some time.
Holland vs. Serbia was a entertaining game - Robben was all over the place.
Argentina fought hard for their win against the physical Ivory Coast.
Mexico - Iran was again a good game.
Portugal were unimpressive against Angola.
Mouth watering clash today -USA vs. Czech Republic
Italy vs. Ghana
My prediction Ghana is going to upset Italy today !!!
Watch out guys !!!
Cheers !!!

USA was such a let down! The media needs to turn down the hype around that team. Czech's put up a splendid show.
Ghana did well, even though they lost to Italy, considering this was their first ever showing in the world cup.

Brazil vs Croatia lacked the fire and zest I wa hoping to see. Whatever hapened to Ronaldo!!!! Guess we've seen the end of him.

Yes Mona - the last match starts pretty late. But the world cup comes once in 4 years and Im thoroughly enjoying it.
Id - Yes - Brazil were a big letdown especially Ronaldo. But I hope Ronaldo strikes back else they can try Robinho in front.
