In general, the second rounds of matches were much better then the first with a few notable exceptions, especially England who played much worse in there second game and did not even look likely to score, at least they were not as bad as the French who deservedly lost. The reason the games were better in general was that many teams could not afford to lose so had to attack more which made for more exciting games.

One of the best games I think was Cameroon V Denmark as both teams went for the win. It was an entertaining match and the defensive errors only added to the enjoyment, also both games in Group D were good.  Argentina put in another good performance and so far for me Messi has been the best player at the tournament even though he has not scored yet.

Spain looked much better in their second, not that they could have gotten any worse from their first match. However, they still have a hard final group game if they are to make it to the next round as one of the favourite Chile who have probably surprised a lot of people and are one of only 4 teams with a 100% record. Holland maintained their 100% record though they have not really impressed me yet, but if they keep winning while not playing at there best it must be a good sign for them.

So far it is hard to tell who is going to win but I cannot wait for the last group games and the knock out stages to begin as it normally leads to more exciting football.

Come on England!!
