Just like you, but different
Day three!! All hopes high for at least England today.
Brunch was organised, being Scrambled eggs, Bacon, Sausages and for me Sweetbreads cooked in butter, and some store brought fresh bread.
Colombia put three past the hapless Greece team who looked disorganised and uninterested. Can’t figure it out they get to the finals where they then go into their shell. Great Win for Colombia
Uruguay clear favourites, get a penally to go 1-0 up. Where-in it went all south for them. At half time they were in control and looking like they could sit in the lead. 3 goals later from the fantastic Costa Rica team and it’s all to do for the Uraguay team ho hope to get their star back for the game against England
Eng-er-land —– A fast pace from both team, with England looking more likely all got really exciting when first Italy and from almost the next play England scored to make it 1-1 at the half. Mario Balotelli popped up the far post to put away what was the winner as the England team became more frantic and less uncoordinated as the match went on. Italy reverted at times to the 11 man defence which just frustrated England all the more. All to do for the English in the pool then.
Japan and the Ivory Coast. For me not the most thrilling of prospects. Japan take an early 1-0 lead and keep this to the half. Second half substitute Drogba changes the game by just his presence and Côte d’Ivoire get two goals in 2 minutes to take the lead and go on to win the game.
Didn’t get to see the goal line technology demonstrated as we have with the previous games. Did get to see liberal use of the magic foam that the referee uses to mark the ball and the 10 yard line.
Still to come a couple of beers though, MrsPhil is out for a meeting so I’m home alone to my own devices.
