I am really, really, really looking forward to the Argentina-Germany World Cup game.
It is almost always a great game when Argentina and Germany play. I’ll be pulling for Argentina as Argentina is an American team, and the one I typically pull for in the World Cup, and I really like Messi.
However I am the first to admit that Germany is a Monster: an Uncanny Monster.
That Brazil Mexico game was extremely good. No goals, but incredible skill and amazing footwork on both sides.
The officiating was a little dicey to me and there were a coupla really rough tackles and unnecessary fouls.
The goalkeeps were what really impressed me though. Both goalies were astoundingly good – uncanny I’d even say. The Mexican goalkeeper seemed to have almost preternatural powers of anticipating where the ball would be before it got there.
I was pulling for Brazil as my South American team but Mexico acquitted themselves very well.
