Can't see Japan getting past Paraguary to be honest, they have the work ethic but not the all round game required at this stage of the competition. I'll be happy to be proven wrong mind :)

Spain to edge it but Torres to disappoint again and Ronaldo to sulk as usual

I've had yesterday and today off work for football watching. Currently eating my corn flakes in my Japan shirt. I don't see that Paraguay have anything more to hurt us than Denmark or Cameroon offered in the group stage.

Ah I see the aftershocks are still rumbling on. I am very happy to have predicted correctly the winners of every match in 8th finals or knockout phase and I even got some of the scores right. Portugal to sulk and kick and Spain to mezmorise.... This world cup has Brazil Spain written all over it. Granted Arjen Robben might have something to say about it...

Cheers for the front page comment. I think Portugal only play well when in front, the 7 goals they scored was their highlight. Spain will have too much for them. Paraguay to continue to the next round.

Portugal are the only side NOT to concede at the World Cup so far, their defence is one of the best their is of the teams left and their GK has been impressive. I think they have a great chance of winning. Deco needs to play imo because he will be influential with his vision, giving passes to Ronaldo and Simao (?)

Spain and Paraguay to win, both to go to extra time, possibly penalties.

I hope Torres doesn't start and Ronaldo has a 'mare.

Still <laugh> when I think of England <laugh>

Well I think we all know that the Spain-Portugal match could go one of two ways. Let's hope it's a football fest as opposed to a niggle fest.

I think Portugal will be humbled tonight. Villa is in cracking form (aside from penalties) and will be a true test of the Portugese defence.

You bite every time Kanchelskis (he is a Rangers legend also btw).

In real life, I couldn't care. I just pop in here once in a while to catch a few tiddlers.

Tragic? You have never laughed at your bigger sporing rivals failing miserably?

I waited until I posted that before changing my username back. Take a chill pill squire. <ok>

Should be an interesting couple of games today. I can see Japan edging past Paraguay in a close game and likewise I can see Portugal just seeing off Spain who for me haven't really come alive yet. If Spain do play to their potential there are few teams to touch them but I'm tipping Portugal today. Either way though, two great games coming up. Looking forward to both.

I never said they peaked too early. But if you need to make stuff up to fuel your weak attempts at wumming, I guess you're welcome to.

I know you like to dress it up as baiting, but I'm afraid that's not what it looks like to anyone. All I see is someone in desperate need of a pastime and with an unhealthy obssession with another country's football team.

I may have laughed at rivals' failures. But then I tend to move on and realise there's more to life than embittered schadenfreude. Believe it or not.

RE: 10:26

The Dutch have won every game so far without putting any effort into it at all. It looks impressive but I fear it will come back to bite them in the butt on Friday.

Tonight's game could be d-day for Christiano Ronaldo. Whilst there is no doubting his exemplary skills, it's intriguing to note that he is exactly the same age (25) as Maradonna was in 1986 when he led Argentina to the trophy. If he wants to be remembered as one of the greatest then tonight's game could be the most crucial of his career.

Interesting stat. We know he's the type of player that can change a game but more importantly Spain know that as well. I see him being marked out of it tonight.

From what I could see such people didn't even rate Germany in the brilliant England team's bracket. England on the hand peaked at just the right time - in qualifiers, against Kazhakstan <laugh>

all those people mocking arsene wenger for ignoring english talent will soon be bowning down to kiss his feet when he provides half of the england team... who can actually pass the ball and are comfortable on the ball.

ideally:
paraguay 3-3 japan (2-3 on penalties)

It's kicking-off already...

No 'Home Nations' playing today but some intriguing match-ups.

Japan v Paraguay? 2-1 Japan?

Spain v Portugal? First game to go to penalties? Spain to win out? Probably.

I'm struggling with predictions today. All I know for certain is that some people will be wallowing in the England debacle, probably for life. Their raison d'etre? Time for a re-assessment. Probably....

Enjoy the games today and savour the World Cup, good & bad.

I have said it a million times before but England players need to go abroad to become better players technically.

With the media focus only in the Premier league & England - there will be less pressure & focus on england players playing abroad.

That way they can perform better and become stronger mentally and perform without fear and with confidence.

Im sure Steve McLaren is crying out for english talent to come & play for his club in Wolfsburg in Bundesliga!

There's an outside (I repeat, OUTSIDE!) chance the semi's could be made up of 4 south american teams....

can anyone tell me the most countries from one continent that were ever represented in the World Cup finals??

Steve McLaren spent enough time at Middlesbrough - who have one of the best acadamies in the country - to know where to go to for untapped English talent (he discovered Adam Johnson). With them wallowing in the Championship a move to a top league elsewhere in Europe would surely be a step up for any of them, no?

I don't think C Ronaldo has the temperament to significantly influence the outcome of the Spain game.

As much as Japan have surprised me. I really hope that Paraguay get through to the last 8. I think the South American teams have been a breath of fresh air in this tournament. Japan played well against Denmark, but if the free kicks had not have gone in, it would have been tighter. They were keeper error anyway IMO. Denmark dropped their heads. Paraguay will be a stearn test for Japan, they are physical, and keep the ball well. I sense a 90 minute win for Paraguay. I think Spain should beat Portugal that will be decided in ET or penalties i fancy though.

England need to start taking the Scottish attitude, we are hopeless and we know we are; enjoy the Football and if by some chance your team win the party lasts a little bit longer but have fun make the world want to support you not ABE.

On the contrary imo, he'll have experienced playing with/against a lot of these Spanish players so will be well prepared coming up against them, I think he will perform well whereas I knew he wouldn't against Brazil.

according to fifa 10 england have a good future. In season mode with the year being 2018 I had jonjo shelvey with an overall of 88 playing CM, joe hart with an overall of 86 playing GK and John Bostock from Tottenham with an overall of 92 playing CF. If only this happens in real life

------------------

I agree, for all the individual plaudits he's earned, I just can't see him being able to single-handedly take Portugal past the Spanish... all of which shows you just what a great player Maradonna really was.
