u are right lili...this game was good...it was hot...and interesting
but if u ask "which team you appreciated the most for the moment" i think it will sound better,
Match: Turkey vs Brazil
those who i appreciated for the moment...
1) Italy-Ecuador (completly biased view)
2) Brazil-Turkey - except for that disgraceful episode of Rivaldo, otherwise a very entertaining match . To top that Brazil won.
3)England-sweden - cool stuff
4)Argentina-Nigeria - for the hype of the super eagles.
There were other matches like paraguay-RSA, but nothing special to mention about them.
South Korea vs Poland. Great achievement!! Personal sentiment to see the flag from Holland hanging there...
And Brazil - Turkey, for reminding me what a beautiful sport soccer can be.
Teams: South Korea and Italy.
Most beautiful goal: that goal from Uruguay against Denmark..KABOOM!
Player: Ilhan Mansiz, for that awesome trick he pulled on Roberto Carlos! I can do that aswell, very easy, but to do it on a WC...damn!
Veron and Totti were masters on the field in their matches.
I haven't seen Izmailov from Russia yet...
I didn't want to appear biased and mention Denmark as one of the best teams so far but now I read footballers from different countries praising the play of Denmark. Most notably Raúl on Realmadrid.com:
Surprised at Denmark's performance
The Danish team has been the most surprising one for Raúl in the first stretch of the 2002 Cup. "From what I've seen so far, Denmark is the team I like the best for their play. I've been surprised at their performance", assured Real's forward, who also praised Germany for "their strength". "The German squad showed they are a great eleven in shape to play a World Cup match".
Raúl highlighted "the balance" he has seen in all the Cup matches played so far, except for the one pitting the Germans against Saudi Arabia. He also stated that the Argentinean squad looked "pretty strong". "Argentina proved they know very well what they are after and what they need to do in order to get victories in a tournament like this Cup", observed Real's footballer. Raúl also foresaw that, "although there are going to be many surprises, only the great teams will get through".
Saudia arabia was really sucks...but really in asia they were very good... and i think that they will make better against ireland and cameroon...they have a very good players..but the last lose was becuase the players was afraid and something like that...
i don't like this sentence from u "The Arabian Superstars"
Arab world's soccer is not realted with Saudia Arabia soccer...
many players in the Arab world is better than the players of the saudi teams...and many teams are better than KSA...
so Arabian superstars are not in Saudi team...they have one or two of them...
