US vs. Czech Republic

What a great team. The Czechs are the most coordinated fighting unit in this World Cup I've seen yet. They're quick, cunning and they have style. They're definitely good to watch, and deserve every goal they scored, and every opportunity they created for those goals. Lovely fighting spirit. They deserve to make it to the second round. The unexpected matches in this World Cup have definitely turned out to be real gems.

Edit: Rosicky is cute and not a goalkeeper. Finally!

Unfortunately, the time difference won in the end, so I missed Italy-Ghana. I'm hoping they show it again here, but I think there's a higher chance they'll reshow the Aus-Jap match. Will have to watch the news for this.

There's still a few more matches to go for Group E too, so it may not be the end yet. Since the next match is against Italy, there's still time for the US to really think about stronger defense.

We'll see. I'm now split on who to root for in that group. All I know is, I don't really want Italy to win. I expect the Czech republic to win. And I'm really rooting for Ghana and the US, and their match against each other will be very harrowing for me. :)

It's Ghana's first time in the World Cup, and their team is the youngest there. They are so enthusiastic, it's hard not to be excited.

I have good feelings about the Czechs, if nothing else because they're a really coherent fighting unit (and this World Cup has lacked one of those). Only managed to catch a few seconds of clips on the evenng news about Italy vs. Ghana, but those goals looked impressive.

The first-time team that has gotten me excited is Trinidad & Tobago. I don't exactly know if they'll make it past the first round, and their style of play isn't too conducive to goals, but they do put up a fight. The harrowing match for me will be Australia vs. Brazil. I'm rooting for the Brazillians, who no doubt will wipe the floor with anyone they play against, but Australia are aggressive. And I'm still holding on to the idea Japan or Korea might make it to the second round. :)
