Wow, that was busy. England v Slovenia; USA v Algeria; Germany v Ghana; Australia v Serbia; and the totally mad tennis match between Isner and Mahut. It’s all go.
The World Cup games were played simultaneously by group so teams wouldn’t know the result of the group rivals’ games in advance. That mean that the England and USA games were on at the same time. Kevin and I had a Skype party. I was watching England, he was watching USA, and we kept each other informed on the progress of the games by Skype video call. It was very nail-biting at the end.
While the games have been fun, I have been just as much entertained by Hyundai’s car football commercials. Kevin says they are not being shown in the US (which doesn’t surprise me, they do appear to have been scripted with England fans in mind) so here are the three games that have been played so far.
Brazil v Argentina
Italy v South Africa
England v Germany
