The once every 4 years World Cup is finally here....yippieee!!!!!! So there I guess there won't be any movie nights or late night dating. The next one month is strictly for football (soccer for those damn yanks out there :p).
Celebrated the opening match at Mojo yesterday aith Allen Ang, Simone and Joei. Simone was so sad that Michael Ballack was only a spectator due to injury. At least her team beat Costa Rica 4-2. Surprisingly, the Krauts look good going forward. Lahm und Schweinsteiger provide flair to a traditionally rigid German team. Captain of the day, Bernt Schneider did well down the right flank. Frings was commanding in the center of the pitch, a natural successor to Didi Hamann, and his goal was wunderbar, as the krauts say it.
However, if they wanna go far, Klinsmann really really need to have a look at his defence. Their set pieces marking was AWOL. And the 2 goals they conceded i have to put it down as defending errors. The positioning sense and defending instinct of the 2 centre halfs were lousy.
Overall, I have to say this was by far the best World Cup opener i watched so far. I hope that this match will set the tone for the rest of the tournament. Looking forward to the England - Paraguay match today. Auf Wiederhesen. :D
