It's a funny ol' game, hard to say Morocco Iran should have been anything more than a draw and the poor Moroccan player scored the own goal off a header. Sad.

Those players were kicking each other quite a bit, still, a lot of these lower echelon teams don't seem to be playing as much gamesmanship as some of the top powers, few tricks. It was very physical out there.

Good game, pretty wide-open even if one might say, the high quality of some teams was not there.

Own goal in the 95:th minute. Iran won, 1-0. Didn't do me any good in the prediction game...

Congrats Torres. You know your game of football! Indisputable lead after 3 games.

Ah, thank you Stoneage! Actually I don’t care much about football, but this mini league is very entertaining. In 30min my team Portugal will play against Spain. Let the best team win.

Yeah, they are indeed pretty off course for this championship winking smiley

They'll be back stronger than ever, though.

Sometimes, if one's team isn't in it, it's just fun to watch the whole spectacle. One time I heard someone say the fans make the World Cup, I kind of agree with that.

You were pretty close though to score 3 points, Hansie. You had 3-2 to Spain. If it wasn't for Ronaldo...

Spain - Ronaldo 3-3. A good game and lots of goals. The Spanish goalkeeper made one crucial mistake though. Which settled it.
Spain is lucky Ronaldo has to fly home and serve his two year prison sentence. And pay up (19 million Euro).

Torres will be a hard nut to crack in the top though. I'm already trailing 5 points after 4 games...

spain should have beat ronaldo. sorry portugal. thought for a minute i was working for the media.

gifted a soft penalty and a howler from the goalkeeper who ive never seen make a mistake ever till tonight.


spain were brilliant to make such a comeback.

still great equalizer at the end, ronaldo bringing his freekick tally in tournament football up to an impressive 1 out of 45. and he improved on his world cup conversion rate of 4%, which includes a penalty v iran in 2006 and an open goal in a 7-0 win v the might of north korea in 2010.

spain should kick on and win this world cup, 2 great goals tonight.

Things can change real quick with bonus points and predicting exact scores. It's no time for anyone to be complacent.

Some interesting games coming up on Saturday, somewhere, we are bound to see Underdogs win or at least draw.

Australia France

Argentina Iceland

Peru Denmark

Croatia Nigeria.

In the FIFA rankings, Peru and Denmark are right next to each other, 11 and 12

I started my predictions with a rather lean approach to goal scoring per game. I see now that that 0-0,0-1 and 1-1 may not be the most results that we are going to get. I am not an expert at all but I am now increasing the goals per game.

Congrats Dandy. You're number two now. Right behind the oracle Torres! I was also thinking 1-1 but didn't dare to go all the way (Argentina were huge favourites, off course).
Messi missed a penalty. Argentina should have had another one. Bad refereeing. The bald Icelandic defender is tough but a penalty (or freekick) enabler. Always one foot behind.
All kudos to Iceland though. Their first WC game ever and they draw with mighty Argentina. Like an Icelandic saga!

some great games so far.

spain team of the tournament so far,

messi was a huge disappointment today. too easy to predict which way he would go, maybe the comparisons with maradodna should be put to be bed for good.

Attacking against Iceland is extremely difficult. It would have been for anyone. They never let in much goals (France in the euro championship was the exception), and they always score. Messi is not done yet smiling smiley

i agree iceland aint easy to score against, but messi tries to hard to do it all himself and usually tries to beat 3 or 4 at a time, without making the killer pass quicker. iceland read him easily.

i hope messi does come good though.

Messi is one of the greatest players the world has ever seen and I wouldn't be surprised if he was to help Argentina win the World Cup.
