Today's WC Games

Group E is still wide-open for teams to advance to the knock-out stage, which should make for better games than the somewhat disappointing 0-0 between Argentina & Holland last night. Czech Republic v Italy will be an interesting match-up, we may well see another draw, but only because what the Czech's lack in defense they make up for in attack, and vise-versa for Italy. With Baros back for Czech Republic he could be the man to cause a stir today. I'm going out on a limb and plumbing for a 2-2 draw, with Italy twice coming from behind to equalize. The other game in Group E between Ghana and the USA should finally see the States picking up 3 points. Ghana have looked a much better side than pre-tournament talk suggested, but with their 2 goalscorers from the last game suspended I think the weakness will show and the US will win by one goal. USA have their own suspension problems in Mastroeni & Pope, but that could be a blessing in disguise, Pope has been error-prone so far this tournament and someone else (Conrad ?) will get a chance to shine in his stead. USA win 1-0.

Group F tonight will see Brazil - Japan and Coatia v Australia. CRO v AUS is the pick of those two, as they can each still qualify with a win. I think the Socceroos have enough to get through but the Croats will not lie down easily.
