Germany pulled out the win they absolutely needed today with an at the death, rocket of a shot from Tony Kroos.

I thought that game was headed for a draw but the Germans pulled it off, once again proving Gary Lineker's famous adage true.

Germans at their best....

However Sweden could have two goals if one of their player wasn't pushed by German player in initial minutes...

Thumbs up to the Panama fans...

Even down 6-0, they cheered like crazy when their team scored a goal. [B-o]

Colombia played far better than I expected against Poland. Lethal on the breaks. I was also confidently predicting a win for Senegal against Japan.

At least we are now spared a Croatia-Serbia match-up which might have been fun in its own way. The big crime in the Swiss game was Mitrovic being held down by not one but two defenders and not getting a penalty for it.

I'll say one thing for the Russians, when they set their mind to something they always seem to go first rate. Check out the following pages for info on the different venues for the World Cup matches. When it comes to architecture, the Russians spare no expense.....

Yeah good games today. England ripped Panama a wider canal while japan and Senegal played to an entertaining draw.

Columbia beat a poor Poland side in a true example of how well they can play. The first game against japan was understrength and on the back foot from the get go.

Final round of group matches begin tomorrow.

Was going to post this in the morning but the site was down for a stretch. Uruguay beat Russia to top Group A while Portugal topped group B despite a late Iranian goal and some late heroics from Morocco against Spain.

Vive Le Coq!

Okay, a tie was enough to pull them through to the 16, I will take it.

Sad day for Australia. They will be missed.

Croatia, as expected, finished strong, sweeping Group D.

Sadly, Argentina also slipped through, so we have to deal with the goat BS for at least one more game.

He did score a great goal. One that eclipses the talent on an otherwise mediocre team.

They’re going to get wrecked by France in the next round and their idiot coach will return to Argentina at his own peril.

Here's hoping. Maybe Messi can co with him, rather then to Spain.

Lol, I really don't like Messi, which is separate from my equal distaste for Argentina's national soccer program.
