        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Both good, very good in fact, but not a patch on Saviola, Riquelme, Rosicky, Robben and Hargreaves.

    One person not likely to figure in 'player of the tournament' polls (at least following his opening performance) is Ronaldo.

    Interesting WC fact No 1:
    Pele's real name is Edson Orantes di Nascimento.

    Interesting WC fact No 2:
    Ronaldo's real name is Ousette Alda-Paez.

    Digging this thread up, but I think Fabio Grosso will be remembered a lot for the good and bad reasons.

    Any others?

    Indeed. Neill was without doubt the biggest surprise packet of the WC, and would make the team of the tournament at the end of it for mine. Didn't put a foot wrong in any of the matches, aside from that one moment where he... put a foot wrong.

    I'd say Riquelme was probably the most consistently dangerous player in the WC in the games he played, and Pirlo would be close behind. There are also others who had one really wonderful performance, like Fabregas against Tunisia, Rosicky against the USA, Hislop against Sweden and Hargreaves against Portugal.

    Will be an interesting team to select at the end of it, anyway.

    Riquelme? He's soooo last week, man. Get with the times.

    Harsh on Hargreaves to say he's only had the one performance too. He was wonderful against Sweden & did admirably well out of postion v Ecuador too. England's player of the tournament by absolute streets.

    Have to say the most consistently influential player has been Cannavaro for mine. Frings has been superb too, yer Jerries really missed him in the middle of the park yesterday.

    He started slowly, but Zidane seems to be treating us to a glorious final flowering of his genius too. France v Italy, Cannavaro v Zidane, could be a fitting climax. Let's just hope the sardine-munchers don't lob a cynical spanner in the works.

    Cannavaro, I thought Australia's Cahill looked in pretty good touch. Miroslav Klose has looked pretty damn good so far in the tournament. But Zidane has really shown his true class.
