    I watched all three games today.

    What. A load. Of bollocks.

    Even the 'big clash' between the Côte d'Ivoire and Nigeria was a big fat turkey of a match. Poor tackling, poor keeping, terrible pitches - the game seriously needs some sort of sorting out in Africa, and not in the 'send all the best players to Europe' sort of way, if they ever are going to get a World Cup winner. I don't know how feasible that is, and to be fair it's still better than watching the women's World Cup, but you can see the potential if they could get it going.

    Congratulations. I meant to but couldn't stomach it.

    It's kinda equal between this and the Woman's WC. On the one hand the CoN is of a slightly higher standard, but the WWC has wimin in it running around in shorts.

    If it helps any I was basically paid to do it (being super quiet in work) - not sure if I could have bothered with the second half of Namibia/Morocco otherwise.

    Mali are an okay looking side at times, tbf, but when you're watching an international game and you hear the words "the Accrington Stanley man" for the first time you seriously have to wonder what's going on with the other team.

    The two games were much better today, tbf. Some corking goals going in, too, especially Zambia's first.

    Not wanting to sound racist, but in general, African players really can't tackle. Great performance from Manucho today, but he was lucky not to be sent off in the first half, same as about three or four other players who did some really crunching tackles.

    So,Ghana is through to semi after defeating Nigeria 2-1.
    It´s seems it was a great match with the Ghana team grabbing a late goal with only ten men.

    Is it me? Or was the ref bribed with cocoa and gold or something?
    Utterly ridiculous calls. One of them involved a ghanian player jumping on yakubu from behind, and then blowing the whistle against nigeria? Or when another ghanian player held one of the nigerian players by wrapping his arms around his waist, yet the ref blew against nigeria. O_o

    Even the first ghanian goal was dubious (another free kick that shouldn't have been given).

    Still, nigeria were the better team for the most part in the second half, especially with one man down. Yet were playing like they were playing against shmucks, lacking urgency, so ghana punished'em.

    The nigerian coach (voght?) didn't even sub yakubu, even though he was blatantly tired.

    :/

    No racism (I'm black).
    Just making a little joke there (seeing as ghana is known for it's cocoa and gold).

    /backs away slowly.

    BBC

    I've got a good feeling about Manucho. Look's like Carlos has pulled of a blinder by finding him. :)

    Hated, adored, never ignored.
