One of the best things about World Cup 2006 for me is that I can watch the games with others. So, I do have i-cable at my flat and I get all 64 games of world cup. Some air at 9pm, some at mid-night, some at 3am. But when weekend comes, it's great to be able to join others to watch at homes, at restaurants, at malls etc. Just to feel that world cup crowd effect!
Most exciting game: Germany 4:2 Costa Rica. I watched the entire opening match and it was such a great game with many goals back and forth.
Most surprising game: Japan 1:3 Australia. You thought Japan's lucky goal would seal their victory. But 3 goals by the Australians during the final minutes changed all that.
Most overrated team: England. They won 1:0 against Paraguay. But the goal was an error made by the opposing team. And England couldn't make a goal with their own efforts.
Most disappointing lost: USA 0:3 Czech. No love with the Americans losing. Such a big nation with talented atheletes and couldn't even make a dent to the Czech's defense!? Sucks!
