Now that the fun and games have finally begun after all the hype, I suppose I should really say something on this topic. After the first few days of action I can't say I've seen any great matches so far. There haven't been any major upsets, except perhaps for Ecuador's 2-0 defeat of Poland. Still it's early days yet. I hope the Brazilians live up to their perennial expectations and produce some entertaining football even if they don't win it. As the only team to have played in every tournament since its inception in 1930, the World Cup just wouldn't be the World Cup without Brazil. I know it's a cliché, but let's hope they turn on the style. Bring on the samba rhythm.
