    Caramba! Another tournament that looks to end in another fiasco for Les Blues. Even though they both looked and played better than last time against Uruguay, it turned out to be insufficient. Today it was all viva Mexico as they won with 2-0.

    Our hats off and warmest congratulations go to our Swiss boys who beat Spain 1-0. Without doubt, the biggest shocker and most amazing achievement of the World Cup (so far).

    Uruguay beat South Africa 3-0 and everything might be forever changed. A result that could mean that this is the first time in the history of the World Cup that the host nation does not qualify from the group stage. Wow.

    We obviously begin with the highly anticipated game between Portugal and Les Elephants. And wow did our boys from Ivory Coast make us proud (rhetorical question). Even without Drogba in their starting 11, they proved that they are a force to be reckoned with in this World Cup. Not sure if it was their speed, quick passing, great movement from the whole team across the pitch, but they sure didn't make Portugal look their best. There was an amazing strike that hit the post from Cristiano Ronaldo in the early minutes of the game, but that felt like about all for the Portuguese.

    Without impressing too much, Holland did cap the win against Denmark. What was expected to be a hyper offensive football fest with players like Sneijder, van der Vaart, van Persie, Babel, Jan Huntelaar and Robben (last three didn't even play) - the Oranje didn't get the game flowing as they wanted and we expected. But they did manage to come out as winners, and doing that in a World Cup without impressing is impressive enough.

    Only two touches inside the penalty box before scoring. Now our football hearts might be slightly inked with Azzurri blue, but think it's safe to say that Paraguay's 1-0 lead came as a surprise. But the great World Champions weren't here to lose, and less than ten minutes into second half, De Rossi showed that he just might be a worthy ancestor of Rome (Totti), and Italy. Despite several chances the result stood tall when the final whistle blew. But biggest setback wasn't the draw for the Italians - longtime hero, Buffon went out in halftime due to a hamstring injury. Really hope it was just precaution and he's fit again soon.
