    Fair play Ecuador. I'll be the first to hold my hands up & say I underestimated them/overestimated Poland. Poles were shocking tho. Very poor. I was under no illusions that they were world beaters, but I had them down as a capable & fairly efficient side.

    Sweden are really struggling with their right back, though, which Lahm and Schweinsteiger should enjoy if it turns out Sweden v Germany. Am beginning to regret my 2-1 to Sweden tip for that match.

    Shows how shocking your qualifying group really was. Almost as bad as ours.

    And to be fair, Poland had two shots off the post, but I think they lacked the ability in front of goal today. There were a number of good opportunities, but they were either a) shot into rushing Ecuadorians who came out to tackle or b) went over the players who got the crosses. Ecuador really weren't that good defensively as they were made out, though, often overrun..

    Expected Poland to do better tbh. Certainly one of the more capable sides and Ecuador only qualify because they play their home games on a mountain....

    How good is the world cup! I am no expert nor a great fan of football but I plan to watch every game of this tournament.

    Germany looked ominous in attack early in their match against Costa Rica. I was pretty impressed and surprised. They didn't look too flash at the other end of the park though.

    Loved seeing Ecuador get up over Poland. Poland were boring and didn't test the keeper out enough, who looked very nervous at the back I might add.

    Ecuador vs. Costa Rica could be a pretty good game. Looking forward to it. Poland have a lot of work to do from here to make it through...

    Looks like my tip of Ecuador going through could pay off. I intended to get up and watch both games - didn't happen though, was woken up by the cat at about 4:30 a.m., let him out, turned on the tv and it was a minute away from half-time in the first game. Probably should have stayed up, but I was tired and wandered back off to bed. Woke up at half time in the second game but fell straight back asleep again. It's not easy living in NZ when the World Cup's on you know.

    There has been plenty of buzz IMO...

    MySky is going to be very good for me for the world cup. Record all the matches and wake up the next day and watch them one after another.

    Quite enjoyed Poland and Ecuador, haven't watched Germany v Cost Rica yet as I have it taped. I timed it just right, I got up to tape it just as the game was about to start when I thought I had missed the start and was angry at myself.

    The German game was pretty exciting, i watched about half an hour of the second game before going to sleep, it seems i was right in my prediction of Poland, vastly over rated because they are a european team in a weak group.
