Samba World Cup!!
We are halfway through round one of the group stages and we have seen upsets occur perhaps the greatest so far is defending champions Spain’s humiliating defeat to the Netherlands. The ultimate grudge match that left us wondering what the hell was Spain doing the whole 90 plus minutes. As for Netherlands amazing form guys and that’s how you revenge big times. We can only hope Spain will pull up from the pit of humble pie where they were mercilessly left bleeding and do much better as for the current standings they are last place in their group. Another upset was the defeat of Uruguay by Costa Rica perhaps not so bad as Spain’s but they are also bottom of group D. another team reeling in defeat that perhaps we almost expected was England who lost to Italy. England hasn’t been on top of their game for a while and this is definitely a warning.
Enough of defeats we saw amazing wins with world class football. Brazil kicked ass with Neymar showing us what to expect when we want goals, tantalizing magical football. Also Colombia was on form just scoring wonderful goals showing us that football was made for South America nothing of military stiffness just flowing passes and incredible goals. And so the World cup has begun with a bang preconceptions shattered but there is still time to recover or maybe more upsets are on the way. As per today these are the standings for Groups A-D:
(Order is highest to lowest
- Cote d’ Ivoire
- Costa Rica
