    Not quite the blood bath I thought it would be but Tahiti lost to Ngeria 6-1. They seem to have given a good account of themselves for a while until the very midway through the 2nd half. Anyway I hope they are happy with the result.

    Thumbs up

    USA 1 v 0 Honduras.

    Goal by Jozy Altidore, his 4th in last 4 games.

    USA gets 9 points out of 9 possible points in this 3 game set for a record of 4-1-1 giving them a total of 13 points which should keep them in 1st place in the Hex.

    NJL (....with 4 games to go in the Hex Brazil '14 now looks like a possibility........)

    USMNT in tough today, but quality won out in the end. Altidore is proving his great season at AZ was not a fluke.

    It's real nice to have a bonafide striker up top for once...

    Spain plays Tahiti today in the ultimate David v Goliath matchup except David is expected to receive a record breaking beating. As Fox sports put it, Australia's 31-0 win against American Samoa is in grave danger. Hope they at least get that 1 goal they want.

    The coolest part about Nigeria x Tahiti was how the crowd was clearly cheering for Tahiti.

    Just a side note Australia's coach Holger Osieck was once the coach of Canada's national team but was fired because the team members did not like him much. Guess his style is very much loved in Australia now.

    Italy beat Japan 4-3 yesterday and Brazil beat Mexico 2-0. Neymar and Balotelli have been the outstanding players so far and the street protests against the cost of putting on the WC continues. Also best of luck today to Tahiti and hope they get at least that one goal against Spain they wish for.

    Poor Tahiti lost today 10-0. Hey at least they gave it their best shot. They should be proud of themselves.

    Cool

    Then Uruguay beat Nigeria 2-1. Nigeria has to beat Spain to advance. Uruguay has to beat Tahiti to advance. I see an easy bet.

    After all this, and before the Heat did their thing, the USWNT played the WNT from South Korea at Red Bull Stadium in NJ. It was no contest as the USA won 5-0. The most interesting part of the match was the 1st half when team USA's Abby Wambach scored 4 goals, her 157th, 158th, 159th, & 160th as a member of the USWNT. The 158th tied the all time record for International goals scored by any player, male or female, the 159th passed the old record and the 160th set the bar another notch higher. Congrats to Abby.

    Brazil 4-2 Italy. Hmmm.... Not bad from Brazil. I may have been writing them off too easy.

    That was one of the worse penalty kicks from Mexico I have ever seen.

    Spain is leading Nigeria 1-0, and Uruguay is leading Tahiti 4-0 and are down to 10 men.

    Kobe Bryant was at the Italy vs Brazil game at the Confederation Cup and gave his opinion on Italy's chances against Spain.

    To be honest, as much as I have affection for this Brazilian side, until now they had been pretty poor as a team and I assumed in the light of their friendlies this year that qualification out of their group during this Confederation Cup might not even come easy if Japan played at their best and Mexico found their way again and played the way we know they are capable of

    I'm quite happy that they have proven me wrong. I also find it interesting that they are growing as a team at the same time as Neymar seems to have turned a bit of a corner and matured compared to his performances with the national team last year or even during several friendlies this year. Both the team and the player still have their issues, but at least they seem to be heading in the right direction

    I still have difficulties seeing them upsetting Spain though, they are just so much in control, although it would be quite fitting for them to win at home

    The problem with Brazil is that it's 11 individually great players, but they are not a team.
    I don't think they would survive Spain.
    Actually, I wouldn't mind if they don't survive Uruguay

    Naughty girl! (or is it boy?!) The final will be Spain v Brazil. Because Uruguay I don't think has enough to beat Brazil and Italy is without Balotelli.
