Liking Spain… June 15, 2006

Posted by dtenjo in World Cup 2006.

It was a good day yesterday at the world cup. Spainstarting the tournament in fashion,scoring 4 goals against Ukraine. I really liked this Spanish theam. I didn't think it would be one of the favourites to win the World Cup, but now, if they keep playing like they played yesterday, they have a really good chance. Usually Spain comes to every World cup woth great expectations, and they end with heartbreaking losses in spite of having great teams. Hopefully for them this will not be the case this time… I'd love to Spain-argentina game in the later stages of the World Cup. On the other hand, there is Ukraine. People had a lot of expectation on them, but it looks like this team could not live up to that. We'll see what they can do in the following games.

As for the other two games featured yesterday, all I can say is that they were great. I did not see the Tunisia-Sauid Arabia game live, but I did follow it online, and saw how it went. Isn't soccer marvelous? It must have been really exiting for all the fans. Good for these two teams, but I still think that in this group, Ukraine and Spain have the better chances to qualify for the next round. 

Now, POLAND! what about that eh? I think they deserved the tie, even though Germany attacked more for most of the second half, but I do think Poland were defending in an organized way until the Read card came. That totally changed the match, and it was the main factor on the end result. In any case, getting a goal in the last minute breaks anyone's heart, so I feel bad for the Poles. I think this is it for their world cup, let's just hope that they cna do a good game against Costa Rica.
