6/16 games

Best day of the world cup so far and group C lived up to its expectations, particularly Argentina.

Argentina vs Serbia & Montenegro
What the Argentian team did today will be talked about for a very long time. The second goal is probably one of the best goals ever scored in a world cup. They were simply awesome. Breathtaking and beautiful to watch. The beautiful game at its best and today they showed the world how the game should be played. Serbia & Montenegro were shell shocked and by the second half they had clearly given up. They were savaged by a mighty team. I will never forget this game.

Holland vs Ivory Coast
An unconvincing Dutch victory. I thought the Ivory Coast made Africa proud in the way they played both of their games so far. They played with a lot of heart and are a very talented team. It is quite ironic that Didier Dorgba; their talismatic player, squandered their best opportunity to equalize when he lazily passed the ball to Arouna Kone on a quick counter attack.

Mexico vs Angola
The Mexicans were very poor on the night and should be very disappointed with their display. Make no mistake though, Angola will be mightly proud of their first ever world cup point. They might have been boring and ultra defensive, but they knew that they cannot compete with a talented and dangerous Mexican team. Congratulations to tiny Angola!
