tbf Asia has to share the spot with Aus which is in itself another continent. Yeah merging with North makes sense one feels.At least their worst team didn't go out with a 1-12 goal difference...unlike a certain continent
(but yeah, SA should get six when they host. Or nine, merge them with the north already.)
I thought Xavi was amazing against Portugal. Fabregas is brilliant, but the Barcelona-Arsenal tie proved that Xavi is still the master in midfield.Still think Spain are going to rue not having Torres in top form due to injury. Although Villa is brilliant in the box on his own, but he is so much better with a strong centre forward alongside him. I see Spain are experimenting with Llorente in Torres's absence and although he may share similar physical features I'm not sure if we can bring the necessary quality. Still gobsmacked Fabregas isn't getting a bit more of a go, as dare I say it, Xavi hasn't been inspiring at all this toruney.
The Germans and Argentinians seem to have a few more options in attack with the likes of Messi, Higuain, Tevez, Mueller, Klose, Podolski all exerting an influence
Agreed - it was a fantastic quartet of matches. This is one of those great tournaments that is getting steadily better and better as it goes on, just hoping this final week is the icing on the cake.Has there ever been a more memorable set of quarter finals? I can't think of a tournament when the quarter finals were close to being this exciting.
If the semis and final live up to billing, then we're looking at the best WC for absolutely eons.
Hm... lego sure has changed. There weren't any black ones back then. Only pirates and ghosts and such.

Also, funny how Klose has equalled Müller's 14 goals. He's in no danger of ever being more than a goodish player but in a couple of years people will look at the stats and think he was a great.
