Can hardly believe this is the same Germany that just got past Russia by one point to avoid the playoff against Slovenia. If they build upon this win maybe my prediction for the final four will be proven to be a bit off.

Interestingly both Germany and Slovenia are doing well...

Aussies where totally destroyed in their match against Germany, i don't see them progressing. I feel sorry for all the Aussies who woke up at 4.30a.m to watch the match, and i can assure there should be plenty of them, since Monday is a public holiday (queen's birthday :rolleyes:)

I feel bad for those goalkeepers who seem to fumble the ball and wonder how much of those fumbles are are a result of the new ball. The Dutch GK just made a similar mistake although the ball was not in danger of rolling into the net. I'd say Slovenia is doing well, but Germany is burying the competition! LOL

Here is a match calender which would help the figure out who will play who in the round of 16.

PML, poor Denmark. So many unlucky goals at the World Cup so far. :P Green is not alone.

(I would never have expected that after their performance against Côte d'Ivoire 10 days ago...)

I find the noise annoying on TV too because it comes across like a swarm of insects. I can only watch for a little while and then I have to turn the sound off. I was wondering if it sounds different in person.

Go Mexico!

When will they implement the filter they claim some company has invented to block out those damn vuvuzelas? I have never had to mute a football match before, but it really is torturous after a while! :yikes:

Japan :cheer:. Camerun has gotten a lot better now in the 2nd half.

I am a once-every-4 years fan of football/soccer, and it feels like it was only yesterday I was reading arguments about if Rooney stepped on that Portugese player on purpose. How time flies!

And boy, am I sick of the noise already! :barrel I have to switch to Spanish channels now, because the non-stop commentary, of which I understand about 1% drowns out the insessant blaring.

On a slightly more serious note, I wonder if the new ball design has something to do all the unfortunate saves?

Rooting for Spain as I always do! :D Waiting very impatiently for their first game! :shuffle:

I found the volume level on my television that drowns out most of the vuvuzelas!

Vuvuzelas forever! That's hilarious, softlip..........

They say that the vuvuzela sound is 127 decibels - 27 more than a chain saw! And the players are complaining too, that they can't hear each other or the referee whistle. So a company is making some with lower decibel level but too late for WC! They've asked the crowd to stop during national anthems.
