    World Cup 2014 - What a fantastic tournament so far


    Hi there
    This World cup (in spite of the FIFA shenanigans and demonstarations in the cities) is turning out to be a real Spectators sport -- really strange results so far -- Switzerland beating Ecuador 2-1 in the last secs of injury time, the Dutch working over Spain giving the world champions a 5-1 drubbing, Uruguay (one of the possible contenders) being beaten by Cost Rica and the England Italy match putting that whole group (D) into a state of frenzy --anybody could go through with Italy who will probably top that group.

    Brazil themselves only got through because of total bias by the Japanese Referee and Ivory Coast also surprisingly won.

    None of the results so far are really going to expected predictions -- this already is going to be a great tournament.

    Can't wait to see how Belgium does later this week (one of the surprising teams of last year).

    Enjoy.

    Cheers

    This years world cup has indeed proved itself to be pretty unpredictable and its kind of nice to keep the magic float around the round "King",after all,football,the one with the kicking round ball,is considered "king of sports"!

Fantastic! in General Support
Holy Kansas Topeka! I just finished installing Windows 8, without speech! It's ten fold better than the Consumer Preview! So far, it's fantastic, but of course, there still are a few bugs here and there, but it's getting exciting to see a nearly finished product! :dinesh: :party: :dinesh: :party:...
