World Cup Day 2 Match Thread

New, comments

3 matches today. My thoughts on each:

South Korea 2-0 Greece: Promises to be a very boring game, if Greece has its way. Looking forward to the debut of the young Koreans.

Argentina 1-0 Nigeria: The debut of Messi+Maradona in this World Cup. Will there be any logic to Maradona's team selection? And how will the home continent edge affect the other African teams?

USA 1-1 England: Promises to be the most watched soccer match in American history. Hope the spirit of 1950 is with us. Will Obama be there?

On a side note, Villarreal B plays at Numancia in a meaningless match at 12 noon Eastern Time. Paco Herrera has called up Fran, Joselu, Modrego, and Nico from the C team to replace the absences of Montero, Musacchio, and Ruben (all on vacation to start the preseason with the A team) and Robert Flores (injury). I'll post a stream if I find one.

This is an open thread for your comments, just as it will be every day during the World Cup. Feel free to chime in.
