I liked Japan-Belguim most too...:) i think Japan deserved to win.

Argentina and Nigeria was also nice to watch.

Though Brazil are one of my favourite teams, they unfairly and Rivaldo's acting was pathetic :yuck:

Denmark-Uruguay has been the best match.

Argentina-Nigeria was the 2nd best - if Nigeria hadn't been so defensive then it would have been the best.

In order of preference : -

1) Italy-Ecuador (completly biased view):D
2) Brazil-Turkey - except for that disgraceful episode of Rivaldo, otherwise a very entertaining match:cool: . To top that Brazil won. :cool:
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.

Ciao

The games I have most enjoyed watching in order.

1. South Korea 2-0 Poland ----- South Korea were really exciting to watch in this game and their fans show the World what the World Cup is all about.

2. Brazil 2-1 Turkey ---- Mainly for the skill and Controversy. Also seeing Ronaldo backto his best.

3. Ireland 1-1 Cameroon --- Enjoyed this because it was an end to end game and Ireland proved to the World that they do not need Roy Keane.

4. Japan 2-2 Belguim --Great match, also being an Arsenal fan it was nice to see Inamoto get Man of the Match. He scored a great goal and his 2nd was special but it was dissalowed for no reason!

5. Italy 2-0 Ecuador --- Seeing Totti and Vieri in full flow is ajoy to watch!:D


Hopefully the best match will be tomorrow when Ireland beat the Germans!:D

I have not seen every match simply becasue they all come on in the middle of the night and I can't tape them all and some I just don't care about anyway. Of the ones I've seen:

Uruguay-Denmark was very good, if heartbreaking.

Brazil-Turkey was a great drama. Every Cup needs it.



The players who have impressed me are:

Ronaldo for shoping he's back in top form.

Vieri for dominating his position

The Korean guy who nearly scored 4 or 5 times in the last 30 minutes of the Poland match.


As for the teams;

Korea was stunning.

Argentina just looks solid and ready.

Same thing with Italy.

Match:
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...:cool:

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:

"Raúl:

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".

Realmadrid.com"

to kyo...

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...

Emperor I meant it in a sarcastic way (judging by their supreme performance) ;)
But if I offended you in any serious way (politically or something in that sense) then I apologize ;)

Just like many of you, I like the Denmark/Uruguay match the most so far. Rodriguez's one-timer goal was a beauty.

Brazil still have the most flair while S. Korea have the best intensity.
