Wow, after a super boring first half the second half was ON FIRE. I always cheer Germany, but Ghana wanted this and played a really good game. They wanted it bad–I was disappointed with how Germany played at first, none of the swift organized teamwork that I saw in 2010. It seemed like they were so non-athletic compared to Ghana. I loved the strut! You earned it, lads! That German keeper was ticked.

Benzema! Benzema! Benzema! Possibly my fav on the French team. This was a good game, but a lot of whining it seemed on the Swiss side of things.

Let’s all take a moment not to remember, or even think about, the train wreck that was France during World Cup 2010. Whew! A refreshingly good game from France yesterday, and the way Honduras is going they’ll have a full deck of yellow cards by the time they are eliminated! Such bruisers. Have fun watching from the sidelines, Palacios!
And let’s keep an eye on Benzema, France #10!
This was from England/Italy, which was a good game! Italy played a lot tighter and less dramatic than their usual.
