World Cup Weekend Wrap Up

World Cup 2006The World Cup is now in full gear and man have the games been good.  The competition has been fierce and it truly appears the teams are more evenly matched than I can ever remember from previous World Cup matches.  I think by far the biggest representation of this came on Saturday when Trinidad and Tobago, a country with only a million people, tied the mighty Swedish team.  Trinadad and Tobago was able to accomplish this feat with a MAN DOWN in the second half due to two yellow cards against one of their players.

The host company Germany kicked things off Friday with a 4-2 victory over Costa Rica then  Ecuador defeated Poland 2-0 in the other match up from this past Friday.  Saturday things got kicked off with England winning against Paraguay 1-0 off an own goal by Paraguay. (OUCH!)  Argentina was able to hold off the Ivory Coast with a final score of 2-1.  Yesterday the Netherlands won 1-0 against Serbia, Mexico worked Iran 3-1 and Portugal held off Angola 1-0.
