The 200% World Cup: The Group B Final Round, Live!

Group B: land of contrasts. It wasn’t, might we date to venture, supposed to end up like this. Going into the first of the final round of group matches, it was supposed to be all about the tension and the excitement of two simultaneous matches being played, but the way in which this group has…

The 200% World Cup: World Cup Breakfast, Day 7 – Baby, It’s Cold Outside

There has seldom in the entire history of the World Cup been a week like this. Last night, holders Spain crashed out of the tournament at the very first hurdle following a chastening defeat at the hands of a Chile team that is starting to look capable of going all the way this summer. Meanwhile,…

World Cup 2010: Brazil 3-0 Chile

World Cup Television Clichés 101: Germany are efficient, the Netherlands play “total football”, Spain are under-achievers and Brazil play to a samba rhythm. One by one, the long-held preconceptions of global football are starting to be turned on their heads. Germany’s defence looks capable of being tested by an attack with pace and flair. The…

World Cup 2010: Chile 1-2 Spain

“Not a word sung by the Spanish players, they know they have to win,” proclaims Clive Tyldesley, as the Spanish national anthem finishes.
