Preview (Round of 8): Italy vs Ukraine

in FIFA World Cup/Italy

FIFA World Cup ItalyA superpower in football, Italy’s prospects for this game is not bright considering they have four dependable players sitting on the bench. After a stretched out game against Australia, they might ran out of fuel against Ukraine.

Defender Nesta is out because of an injury, Marco Materazzi is serving a one game ban today for a red card given against their match with Australia, midfielder Daniele De Rossi remains suspended and forward Vincenzo Iaquinta is still suffering muscle injury.

It is going to be a very difficult climb for Italy although they will be relying heavily on Francesco Totti to score the go ahead goals for the team.

That’s a very good question which may be traced from the following reasons:

1. Jurgen gave no convincing explanation to Oliver about his choice
2. Oliver publicly declared that he cannot accept Jens to be better than him
3. Oliver doesn’t show any sign of happiness on the bench

FIFA World Cup ArgentinaPeople are going to watch and see who among the two teams can outplay the other out of the group of 8.

Preview (2nd Stage): Brazil vs Ghana

in Brazil/FIFA World Cup/Germany/Ghana/Matches & Results

FIFA World Cup BrazilA superpower in football, Brazil is the heavy favorites to crush a newcomer named Ghana though impression is far from reality. Brazil is yet to show some dominating and convincing wins to solidify fans’ impression that Ghana is a walk in the park match.

How will Brazil win the game? — with lots of bruises.

Brazil have been impressive against Japan where they played their reserves except for Ronaldo who used that game to build his confidence and probably lose some fat.

If Brazil plays to their potential then they should have no problem advancing to the next round after this; but if not they will be going through a rough night against a hard hitting opponent as Ghana.
