The latest is that Drogbas surgery was sucessful and he is expected to make the 2nd game. I hope he is able to make a faster recovery as IC's chances of progressing rely on a fit Drogba.
I cannot wait for this tournament to start now! 3 days and counting....

Robben will be ready later,he will be in S.A !
So sory for Ferdinand, Beckham ! I LOVE how play Rio ! England lost one the best of the best !
Drogba,mediocre (he is not a star !) .
Essien .. eh !

This team actually plays as a team, so damn entertaining to watch them play!

Worryingly for them though, Iniesta was taken off after 39 minutes with an injury.
I'm not particularly hopeful of England's chances after some poor displays in friendlies and warm-up matches. Though i actually believe that we are probably the only team able to counter Spain's game. The teams that will challenge them are the ones prepared to step up physically and match them fitness wise. Xavi and Iniesta are the engine of the Spain side, counter them and you can effectively ruin their flow, in Gerrard and Lampard we have two maestros able to do just that.
Siamak, you don't rate Drogba or Essien?!?!

As for Sia's statement regarding Drogba and Essien I totally disagree!
Posted 09 June 2010 - 02:34 AM
Drogba is good in Chelsea but not in Ivory Coast national football team .
You want a good one ? then look at S.Eto'o !
Essien .. I prefer the other african players than him ! just that ... !

Regards to Essien, i think he is the best defensive midfielder in the world. Chelsea missed him terribly during the second half of last season. He is indispensable to them. Not only does he defend immaculately giving the likes of Lampard a free license to attack at every opportunity, but his sheer pace and tenacity also gives him a potent ability to bomb forward himself and link play brilliantly. i feel so sorry for Ghana, they have a fantastic side, but his loss is nothing short of catastrophic for their chances.
Siamak, who will you be supporting this tournament then?
Keano jan, will you be supporting the US against England on Saturday?
Posted 09 June 2010 - 08:48 AM
I will support :

I think now, even if he plays, he will not be the same after suffering a broken bone. It will play with his confidence and will affect the physical side of his game. A huge blow for Ivory Coast. The fact that Erikson is managing them doesnt bode well for them either. In my opinion the most overated of international managers.
I too think Argentina have a good team, world class players in Messi, Tevez and Mascherano. I'm not convinced by Maradona as a coach though.
Posted 09 June 2010 - 09:36 AM
-Agree with you about Maradona .
* Do you think Tevez ever was (is) happy in Premier league ?!
* Do you think in generally south american players (pro 3 - 4 - 5 stars) are happy playing football in Premier league ?

Can't wait for this to kick off tonight, i'm goign for South Africa 0 Mexico 1, Uruguay 1 France 1.
What are your predictions for the USA England match tomorrow?
Posted 11 June 2010 - 01:57 AM
I predict the following for day 2:
England 3 USA 2 Yes USA will give a good run to their English counterpart
S. Korea 2 Greece 1 Greece has been on a decline recently, they will be outrun by the Koreans speed and high stamina
Argentina 1 Nigeria 0 A narrow win for the vastly favorite team

It is so hard to predict as the tournament atmosphere can present some big surprises! I was thinking that even Uruguay may surprise the french tonight. i've seen them play quite a few times and have looked impressive.
Posted 11 June 2010 - 09:56 AM
Good match ! south african players were more ready than mexican (of course, because many of them were playing before 3 weeks in many important leagues of the world and they are still tired !).
The final result is fair !
