2nd Round: Games 1 and 2

"i watch it in macdonalds cuz all cafes full!"

Thats my friend, talking about the Mexico V Argentina game. It seems World Cup Fever has gone ahead, despite ART's best efforts at monopolising it. You will NEVER crush our spirit! :D

Man, the games today. What can I say. One was amazing, one was very, very maddening. Lets start with Sweden V Germany.

Germany 2 - 0 Sweden

Someone from the BBC Sport message board had this to say:

"Germany were the better team - but this abysmal refereeing has to stop. It's ruining the World Cup "

I agree entirely. Sure, Germany played well, but the refereeing was terrible. And its not the first time. The Swede who was sent off deserved none of those cards. It was a frustrating game, and I was tempted to just turn it off when Larsson missed that penalty. I dont get how PROFESSIONALS miss penalties. HOW CAN YOU MISS THE FREAKING GOAL !!! Man, I hated that game.

Argentina 2 - 1 Mexico

This was a classic. Amazing game, as promised. I predicted 2-0 or 3-0 to Argentina, but Mexico came out guns blazing. They surprised us all with that first goal, but all credit to Argentina, they came back guns blazing. It was awesome, but Argentina seemed to run out of steam first, and Mexico looked the stronger team for much of the game. Argentina seemed to run out of creativity, and Riquelme looked tired towards the end. But they still threatened often. The Maxi Rodriguez goal in injury time was UNBELIEVABLE, and Mexico seemed to run out steam and determination after that. A classic.
