    Terrific game to start things off. Two sensational goals, some good attacking play, and the underdogs got a bit of fun too.

    Obviously Germany's defence was pretty shoddy at times, but from a neutral (or at least non-German fan) perspective I liked that they kept pushing forward and didn't look to save face, even when 3-1 up. It would have been easier to do so, from Klinsmann's public image perspective in particular.

    Be nice if all the games were that entertaining.

    So then,

    We've learnt that Germany are good going forward, shouldn't be allowed to have the ball about 25 yards away, Klose should be kept away from the goal at all times and that they're utterly dire in defence.

    England should be able to beat them tbh.

    Costa Rica were dire. Germany really should be embarrassed to concede two against them.

    I know a few of the keepers were having a moan (as keepers do) about the balls being "goalkeeper unfriendly", but jeez they move like the 99p plastic floaters you used to buy from service stations on the way to the seaside! Frings's shot must've moved 8-10 feet laterally in the air!

    Ecuador were really good in that first half. Really solid at the back, and made the other teams we've seen so far look awful in that regard. Poland didn't play badly really, but they didn't look much like making a goal either. Could have been 2-0 easily, too.

    It's another good game to watch, too. Plenty of attacking football.

    Decidely so. I can't quite believe how anonymous Poland have looked. Given the ease with which they qualified I think I have the right to expect a little more.

    Ecuador making the early running in the " team with the crappest haircuts" standings tho. The lad sporting the soul-glowed mullet with shaven sides will take some beating.

    Heh. Exchange in the Mřrk household (translated for general benefit)

    Dad: If it's 3-3, nobody gets any points for tipping, right?
    Me: Yep, doesn't look much like that tho.
    Mom: Looks more like 0-0.
    (Ecuador gets throw-in)
    Me: Not so sure, I think some team might get a goal off a set piece sooner or later

    are you talking about the other 3 out of .... all of the groups?

    what the hell ..... broad generalisations off 2 games

    I expected Ecuador to be worse than they've been, given the way the qualified (getting virtually all their points playing at altitude). Still nothing to write home about... quarter finals should be a breeze for two certain Group B sides...
