Well, Germany and Paraguay succeeded in boring us all half to death. I can hardly believe I got up at 7a.m with a hangover to watch this garbage. Germany won with a last minute goal but it is hard to feel any sympathy for Paraguay who displayed no wit or imagination at all. Probably playing for penalties. This is the price, I suppose for having teams like France and Portugal knocked out early. We are left with garbage.
England go through having beaten Denmark in a disappointingly one sided match. England were 3-0 up at half time and the game was effectively over. Second half must have been a bit desperate for neutrals. We play the winners of Belgium V Brazil in the next round. Mouthwatering.
