Good stuff! It wasn't on live but I'll set my TiVo. I've been dreaming for the last 18 months but have toned them down a notch or two lately. This team has to have the best potential since 1970...we'll see...

lucky enough to have seen a lotta games over the weekend:

france-germany 0-0 :

france were toothless without viera & zizu - maybe a quarter/semi final for them

germany were industrious, busy & dynamic, but still toothless in attack - qf/semi again at best

holland-italy 1-3 :

holland are a good young side who were unbeaten in qualifying & tipped to do well in wc

however, italy were truly masterful ! rock-solid defense, lightening counter-attacks, & even good on set plays !

italy look, by far the best team in europe & i can see them winning the wc

and in matches which really count...

aussies win in pks to advance over uruguay...

forlan was out due to injury...

trinidad wins at bahrein 1-0 to advance....beenhaker is a great coach to take that group to the finals...

turkey and swiss tied 4-4 in aggregate as I pots.

Starting to click?, let's hope so. May be you're right not to be so pessimistic Mark (in another thread).

Trinidad also advanced. Four CONCACAF teams are going to Germany. Australia, too. It's indeed a brave new world.

trinidad got off to a very ppor start in the hexagonal..

fired their coach and hired leo beenhaker...

and he turned them around...

still, jack warner is from t&t and the ehad of concacaf...

basically he rigged the draw in the semi finals so the group was mexico, t&t and a couple island natioms...st vincent and the grenadines and another minnow...

two advanced...

other groups were FAR tougher...

still t&t went into the last match of the hex HOSTING mexico, which had already clinched a slot...

well, mexico just showed up and went through the motions, and t&t did the job, beating them 2-1....

now t&t beat bahrein 1-0 yesterday........

and bahrein is a total piece of garbage.......

they'd have been beaten 10-0 is they'd had gotten to germany....
