South Korea has made strides in the Football world and this would actually be a cap and great start to 2015. South Korea won this way back in 1960 and has come close 3 times as runners up.

Australia came close last round, losing out to Japan by a single goal, so will be really keen to grab it this round, especially with all the home fans high expectations.



Wonder if they will miss Mark Schwarzer ?

England my England
Oh how you fare
For Football is a team game
Tis not one person to solely blame
Yes poor Robert Green
Did let it slip through his hands
That wild shot from Patrick Dempsey
From the New World
Called the US of A

Yes old Steve Gerrard did score the first shot
Into goal
And gave England the lead
But 10 good men
With HUGE reputations
Of skill and history
Did have lots of time to put right
The wrong that Green made
Where were the goals ?
Did they exert the dominance that Germany showed
Against Australia
In a similar David vs Goliath arena ?

Step up step up
Football is a team game
All are to blame
If you did not win the game

So fast you forgot
All the good saves
That he has made
When Green saved your butts
Now you wish to put the blame
Solely on one man
Tis tis
Shame on you
Get your heads out of ’66
And into the 2010 game
The Lions of BPL
We still have not heard you roar…

Australia can learn a lot about not being intimidated by a higher ranking opponent and giving all you got from the Peoples Republic of Korea as they held off the Brazilian team ranked No 1 in the FIFA rankings. Being the 105th ranking team, they were expected to be steamed rolled by the “superior” Brazilian side. But the PRK team came out with guns blazing and have put up a good fight frustrating the Brazilian team at every corner. Until half time the score has been 0:0. Maicon managed to score the first goal just after half time but the PRK team are not lying down to give up yet and are still attacking the Brazilian goal.

Brazil has shown some of their usual flair but I feel they are looking for that great impressive out of the box goal rather then passing the ball to get into a position to score the goal. Unlike the German side which exhibited more cohessive playing with precision passing and more mechanized game, it will be interesting to see what happens if these two meet up. Brazil has not shown the dominance of the No 1 ranking team.

German Football machinery overwhelms the Australians June 14, 2010

The German soccer machinery seems well oiled and ready for this World Cup with an extreme display of team work and great passing in today’s match against Australia. Firing off their World Cup opening match with a resonding 4:0 victory against Australia, they served notice that they are ready to take back their crown at this World Cup.

Australia was simply out classed and the sending off to Tim Cahill with an immediate red card was just the nail on the coffin.
