82′ Kalou (Ivory Coast)

This game did not disappoint as we have seen how Ivory Coast pushed so hard to win this game and score big. They were hoping that Portugal loses to Brazil and Ivory Coast can catch up with the goal difference.

Didier Drogba was awesome directing plays, making stops and doing everything he can to get his team to score, score and score.

Ivory Coast still didn’t have enough to move to the next round but their performance is nothing short of excellent.

in Brazil/FIFA World Cup/Matches & Results/Portugal/South Africa

Match & Result: Portugal vs Brazil (25 Jun 2010)Winner: [to be updated after game]
Score: Portugal(0) vs Brazil(0)
No goals scored.

Recap

Damn, this was a boring game and clearly Portugal and Brazil only cared to end in a draw.

Both these teams played safe, they didn’t attack with force, had long shots to the goal, and didn’t hassle much. For two teams that could compete hard, there weren’t an yellow cards given on the second half.

Both teams made sure they were healthy going to the next round. Dunga showed some signs of care for the Brazilian team seeing him walking up and down the side of the field. If he did that against Ivory Coast and Korea DPR then I wouldn’t have any problem with that. It seems this is all for the show.

Key Takeaway

Let’s just forget this game. For the last 6 months since the schedule was announced, people were waiting for this matchup and it disappointed well enough.

Score: Australia(2) vs Serbia(1)
84′ PANTELIC (Serbia)
73′ HOLMAN (Australia)
69′ CAHILL (Australia)

Recap

This was a tough game for Australia and they didn’t only need to win but they had to win big scoring a number of goals. They fought from the start and Cahill had a great moments in the first half which just fell short of a goal.

In the second half, Australia was blazing, attacking as quickly and often as they can. They were rewarded on the 69th minute with a goal from Cahill. Four minutes later, Australia scored another goal via Holman. Things looked good and Australia may have scored three more goals. Remember Portugal scoring three goals in seven minutes against Korea DPR?

Serbia came back and scored on the 84th minute. The effort of both these teams were great but not enough.

Key Takeaway

This was a great game and Australia and Serbia have something to celebrate about especially for Australia who could have gone to the next round had they scored a few more goals.

Ghana and Germany are moving to the next round.
