Short and sweet.
Last game of the opening World Cup matches. The Russian team are all based in the homeland and come full of experience. On the other hand South Korea are full of youth, pace and excitement…
Russia had a good first few minutes testing the Korean goalkeeper from long range and then glancing a headed chance just wide of the post.
Oh, the game is back on.
Have to say Thierry Henry has been unbiased with his comment’s all tournament. Even when France played.
The BBC were very one sided with their view of the Brazil/Mexico game. Only one highlight that didn’t show the hosts attacking.
Lies I tell you, lies!
And now the analogies are about Rooney and England. It was only a matter of time.
The half time advice being suggested by the commentators this World Cup has been dreadful.
Apparently Capello needs to get into his players and tell them to open up…. you bloody think!?
One positive for Martin Keown, but it isn’t a great complement.
He is better than Savage.
As a side note: Did anyone see the marvelous way Japan are raising the profile of their World Cup?
Fabio Capello may have just slipped into a coma.
More to the point – it’s not how you start a World Cup but how you finish it!
Sadly that comparison was not specifically mentioned.
Belgium are adequate at what they do and Hazard, who everyone down plays at an international level, had two players marking him at all times. I’m shocked that people, especially those being paid large sums for their views, keep knocking them down. Their squad has real depth and their only real issue is at left back.
Its that or he showed George the picture he drew of him on MS Paint.
Son can be disappointed there. No contact at all but a yellow card has been given.
It just dawned on my that the written overview of this game is going to be tough.
The Russians get some early pressure. Looks like they’ll build up down the wings and try to utilise their height advantage from crosses.
The Russians get us going. Finally these two sides get a chance to show us what they can do.
Fabio Capello looking happy as always before the match gets underway.
