Australia vs France tonight.... as much as I want the Aussies to win, I can't see it.

But, you never know! Ghana beat Japan while I was in Tokyo!

Good luck today. Unfortunately, I have to work later this morning. It's at 11 am here and I won't finish til 1  :(.

My local has a few Aussies working there so would have been nice to pop in for a cheeky livener and cheer them on.

As you said, you never know. Egypt were unlucky to not draw against Uruguay.

Enjoy the game.

Cheers weave  :beers:

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Martin,

Sorry about your leg and sorry i didn't say so on your thread so sorry about your leg.

Can you not take a day off the antibiotics for Monday night? Remember it's England. As you know I'm a Pompey fan and either way, win or lose, I don't think I could cope watching them or England completely sober.

Cup of Tea, weave.

We had a sweep at work, 3 teams each, I managed to pick Peru, Costa Rica and Oz. That was £3 well spent  ::)

On hols in Croatia at the mo.  We watched Croatia v Nigeria in a bar.  Iíve got to admire the Croatian people- they are so enthusiastic- nearly everybody in red and white, all the bar staff in replica shirts.  Really good evening and the right result.

Ah well, Aussies went down 2-1, but they put in a respectable performance, I feel.

Since the stupid American team didn't make it, I'm going for Iceland and Belgium.

Portugal/Spain - Incredible match!

Peru/Denmark - Really exciting match!

Another major distraction for me delaying progress on Deadwood. We just finished the ice hockey finals (Stanley Cup) two weeks ago which was good for me wasting 2 hours a day and along comes the World Cup which is good for me also wasting a couple of hours a day. I'm loving it. Not normally much of a fan of soccer, but the World Cup really is something special to watch. Like Scott, I thought the Spain-Portugal match was terrific.

The Oz-France match result was disappointing, but expected even though I think a draw would have been a fairer result considering how the game went. The Mexico-Germany tomorrow morning our time should be a ripper.

Itís a huge distraction for me.
Four games yesterday and the cricket as well.
Too much sitting in front of the box here.
