    Fairy tale time. Al Jaber puts yer Saudis ahead!

    2-2. Jaidi two minutes into injury time. Turned into a great little game second half.

    ****, Roger Lemerre what’s the deal with you and the World Cup.

    Al Jaber did he not play for Wolves? could have sworn one of their firms were ‘singing his praises’ at the Den once.

    Thrilling finish that. Jaidi sneaks a point at the end.

    For about five seconds, yes.

    Great game that. Still have to say this looks like the worst section of the draw by far, though. Spain will fancy their chances to make the quarter finals without breaking a sweat.

    So much for my Ukraine to finish top of the group prediction heh

    They were bad although watching bits of the second game they would still be a good chance to make it through if Spain hold up there end. Shev will get more space against those two.

    I think Shev might've put that chance away at 0-0 if the linesman hadn't made a horlicks.

    I'm not so sure that performing to that level this early is a good thing - it's hard to maintain that level for 7 games...

    I wouldn't have said Poland were *that* strong in qualifying to be honest.

    The other 2 both had games against very good opposition in extreme temperatures - coincidence?

    I knew I had him in one of my teams, just couldn't remember which game it was!

    How good did Spain look!? I didn't see Brazil vs Croatia, but apparently they were decidedly below their usual standards. If all goes to plan (which it will), Brazil and Spain will meet in the quarter finals. Will be a cracker.

    Brazil will have to get past probably Italy or the Czechs I think in the second round. Already looking like a great knockout stage from where I'm standing and only one team has qualified
