Yeah, Portugal was way favorite, but Germany exhibited an attack soccer that was just great to watch (though the defense sucked big time, as all through the tourney).

The guy that had the bad day was Ricardo...! (just for the record, I think Ronaldo is overrated, glad Madrid bought him - his tricot number will be a bit larger than the ones of his companions: Raul 7, Kaka 10, Ronaldo 94.000.000 )

Great game, if Germany can follow that style...?!

Confederations Cup.. Brazil 4-3 Egypt. Egypt were rather unfortunate I felt!

USA advances to the semi-finals! It needed the perfect storm, and the futbol gods delivered! I know they'll probably be crushed in the semis, but I'm proud of our boys!

Brazil played fantastic futbol against Italy, who looked almost like they were awaiting their departure from the tournament.

That was pretty awful, I agree.

They are SO lucky they're still in this tournament, and they won't make it by Spain whenever it is they play.

Well, the carnage begins tomorrow... I'm praying for the US, but I think we'll see Spain walk away with the big W.

1830Z today.

Donīt despair, while Spaninīs National Team probably atm is the best in the world, it wonīt be on the field, just a B version: Iniesta (the Brain) and Senna (the contention) and some more are injured and cannot play, and the Mister (del Bosque) has changed the style to play for the extremes rather than the famous tiki-taka through the center.

This did not look good at all in the last game, and my guess US has a (slim) chance to surprise today.

OTOH, give Villa or Torres one good pass, and there you go...

Looking forward to the start now,
