    Hoping for a good one in this opening game. I quite like both sides.

    Defeat won't be disastrous for either side, who should both reach the last 16 (Spain and Ukraine I mean)

    Hmm, three up now. Does that sort of thing usually earn a red card? Seemed a little harsh to me.

    4v0 - dodgy penalty decision but Ukraine never really looked like scoring, Shevchenko neutralised, Spain utterly dominant.

    Extremely harsh. A cynical foul is always a red card, where the fouled player is denied a clear goalscoring chance, but I'm not sure the penalty in question was even on.

    Ominous signs, Spain actually performing to their abilities, who would have thought that. Probably the best team performance of the tournament, Ukraine are no mugs but they were little more than cannon fodder today, could not get a sniff of the ball. Unlucky with the penalty and red card but the game was as good as dead for the Ukrainians after twenty minutes.

    Ukraine were very poor. One of the themes of this WC so far, aside from the evenness of the competition, has been the overratedness of various European sides who were strong in qualifying. Poland, Ukraine, and also Serbia & Montenegro to an extent were not impressive at all.

    Ukraine and Serbia have excuses though, they played very good teams, whilst Poland were very disappointing.

    Coming into this group I fancied Spain and Tunisia, Ukraine sure they have one of the best players in world football but they are so dependent on him it is untrue. Whilst Tunisia might not have the best players in the world will play like a team and will be organised. However I do not think I will be tuning in at five to watch the game against Saudi Arabia.

    Brushing aside a Ukraine side with one quality player proves that how?

    Their record is littered with the odd fine outing; though this is their best ever start to a World Cup, I shall remain dubious for now.
