4 July 2010

The 2010 World Cup is now in the semi finals. My team Spain barely got past a resilient Paraguay side last night to book a semis date with Germany. After that 4 nil thumping of Argentina earlier yesterday, nobody wants to meet Germany at the moment. South American teams had been seen as early favourites for this tournament after breezing through the group stages. However after the quarter finals, only Uruguay is left standing that is after winning on the lottery of penalties against Ghana.

So now Netherlands meets Uruguay and Spain versus Germany. My heart would like to see Spain going through the finals and going all the way but if Germany kept playing the way the did in the previous 2 matches, I think it's gonna be Netherlands vs Germany come 11 July. That said, this IS football and anything can happen. That's the beauty of this game. God knows it my be Uruguay vs Spain and the South American winning it!

For the record, I don't like Torres' new hair cut. That is why he's been invisible so far in this finals.
