Germany's 1-0 victory against Ghana made them the winner in the Group stage of the 2010 World Cup in Group D. This has made them qualify for the Round of 16. Ghana's loss did not remove them from second ranking in their group even as Australia scored 2-1 against Serbia because they are on top due to goal difference.
If Australia's loss to Germany in the first game in their group was not 4-0, Australia would have had a chance to rank second. Australians would have celebrated and felt like enjoying shoebuy coupons if that happened.
But right now, Germany and Ghana both enter the Round of 16 of the 2010 World Cup as the 7th and 8th teams to qualify. Eight more teams await qualification from Groups E to H.
In one of the final matches in Group E of the 2010 World Cup, Denmark will be facing Japan. The winner of this match will automatically qualify for the Round of 16. A draw between these two countries will send Japan into the next stage of the World Cup 2010.
With both teams coming from a loss to Netherlands and a win against another team, Japan is second in rank as Denmark conceded 2 goals in their loss to the Oranje while Japan conceded only one.
Fans will be bringing their vuvuzuela toys and will be cheering for their teams but I personally predict a draw for the Denmark vs Japan match.
Ghana and Germany, the first and second in the Group D rankings in the World Cup 2010 are scheduled to face off at 20:30 South Africa time simultaneous with the Australia vs Serbia match.
Ghana comes from a victory and a draw but have scored a goal on both games. Germany, on the other hand comes from a 4-0 win on its first game and a goalless loss against Serbia in its last outing. Ghana will avoid a loss to keep itself qualified for the Round of 16 while Germany will be desperate to win in case the Australia vs Serbia does not draw. A win from either Serbia or Australia will and a loss by Germany will put the winner of the mentioned match in the second rank of Group D. Between Ghana and Germany, I predict Germany to win but Ghana will fight back to avoid disqualification in case Serbia wins against Australia.
For the Australia vs Serbia. I predict a win by Serbia which comes from a win against Germany but a loss against Ghana. Australia, on the other hand, has never won a game in the group stage but still has a chance to qualify for the next stage if they win with at least 2 goals and Ghana loses goalless. Group D performance makes Serbia the possible winner against Australia.
A single goal by Jermain Defoe was enough to send England to the next stage of the World Cup 2010. Meanwhile, a goal by Landon Donovan in injury time suddenly took USA from third to first in the Group C rankings, letting them qualify for the Round of 16 together with England.
In this preview of the Slovenia - England Group Stage match (Group C), Slovenia is coming from a win against Algeria (0-1) and a draw against USA (2-2). Slovenia is avoiding a loss to qualify. That means that a win or a draw will get them into the Round of 16.
England, on the other hand comes from two draws, the first was against USA (1-1) and the other against Algeria (0-0) which did not concede a goal in their match. The only way for England to qualify is to win the match. A loss will surely disqualify them from advancing to the next round while a draw, even if USA draws with Algeria in the simultaneous match will disqualify them because of the greater number of goals scored by USA in all group matches between the two of them. A goalfest for England is unlikely so getting at least 3 goals, assuming that USA draws with Algeria and both are scoreless, is a long shot.
But, with England's many good players, they have a real chance to shine in this match. I predict a win by England and a qualification in the Round of 16 for this 2010 World Cup.
I am looking forward to watch the match between Uruguay and France today live from Africa. I am sure that millions of people all over the world are tuning in to witness who will win in this game. Meanwhile, I will have to finish up some tasks I have to accomplish. Some research on asbestos mesothelioma and photos from our trip to organize. Hoping for the best team to win!
Rumors have it that David Beckham’s marriage is on the rocks. We certainly hope this is not true. As if Beckham's torn Achilles tendon injury wasn’t bad enough. Here comes yet another challenge for the acclaimed footballer.
The marriage troubles were said to trace back from David Beckham’s wanting to have another baby. Victoria is not up to it and wants to get back to revive her career which she has put on hold for a while now. But David is said to want a baby girl this time. We’re hoping that the Beckhams will have everything resolved else the celebrated grand wedding with all those posh wedding decorations will all be put to waste. Fans are also looking forward to David Beckham getting back in his groove without distractions.
The people of Kenya are physically well built for athleticism. Most Africans are that is why we can not discount the chances of having an African team get into the quarter and semi finals of the 2010 World Cup which will kick off a few days from now.
But their country’s superstars are not enough to make them win even though they are so physically fit that they don’t need top rated diet pills. They need to work as a team, solid both in offense and defense.
Hollywood film star Tom Cruise thinks David Beckham will play in the 2014 World Cup for England, despite the fact that he will be almost 40.
Beckham, 35, has been ruled out of this year's tournament with an Achilles tendon injury but the actor is backing the midfielder to pull off a Mission Impossible to play in Brazil in four years.
The pair became good friends after Beckham signed for Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007 and Cruise told The Sun: "I wish he was playing in the World Cup this year but he will be back for the next one you know."
Instead of collecting pictures like eczema pictures, I will busy myself with collecting pictures of David Beckham in preparation for hi possible comeback.
When the World Cup 2010 starts in June 11, I will be in Nairobi, Kenya for a missions trip. I do intend to watch the games that I can watch. I’ll be finishing writing about an adult acne treatment post and then focus on the games. I am looking forward to watching the England vs USA match on June 12 as I will be with American friends.
