    Halftime and I must say I have been very impressed with Ghana. Though it might have been a bit one sided but they have really been putting the pressure on Serbia and should have been at least 1-0.

    Cracked another beer open and looking forward to the 2nd half :D

    Edit: 1-0 Ghana. Well taken penalty and right result hopefully.

    Unless Australia get their act together at the back this is going to be a very embarrassing first game for them, 2-0 in less than 30 minutes!

    Cheers

    Should be more than 2-0 if Germany would do a better job finishing.

    Got to agree there. It could be a lot worse for Australia, that last chance, if he went down I think it would have been a penalty, fair play that he stayed on his feet but I think the keeper did catch him.

    Australia seems a little too reliant on the referee. Their offsides trap already failed them, abort it and play real defense.

    With the recent red card I feel that this game is near over. The venom is out of australia's attack. Hopefully Germany will continue to play as well as they are throughout the world cup. I believe that they can go far.

    Edit: What do you guys think of Cahill's card. I believe that it was a good call.

    Straight red, that is unbelievable!! Think it is damage limitation for Australia now, as you say the back 4, as soon as the ball is palyed, look at the linesman for offside but Germany are timing the runs to perfection

    I think they can from this performance but there have been doubts because they're a young side, but if they can keep this up they could be a favorite? Maybe to early to tell?

    Edit; is it just me or are you think how close does Kloser need to be to score ha ha :D

    Bogus red. He held back, no cleats at all. If he would've gone cleats up it would've warranted a red, but not for mistimed tackle.

    Alright, time for Germany to stop scoring and possess. Show some sportsmanship, please.

    It could be worse, they could have Rob Green in goal ;)

    Too bad Germany doesn't have him in goal.

    Don't see why not. Cacau is a German Brazilian, I'm sure we could find Rob Green has a German relative so he could play for them. We may be in with a chance of winning then :D

    I'm a tad German, maybe I could go in goal. Except I probably could've saved the one Green let up.

    As much as I disagree with that red card, I love this ref. His two yellows for diving are great calls. That's one of the things I hate about soccer.

    I have to say that that was a good result. The Germans were the better team. The Red card is debatable (probably a bad call), but the Germans were out playing the Australians handily even when Cahill was on the field. Go Germany!!!

    Here we go everyone now thinking the Germans are awesome hmmm lets wait until they play serbia or ghana they won't look so good then.

    I dunno what the ozzies were doing but they must of been thinking they were playing rugby because there was no defending whatsoever and everytime they attacked there was like 2 australians and a swarm of germans.

    I don't even notice them at this point. I completely forget about them until someone goes "what is that noise?" Then I suddenly notice them again.

    You my friend are wrong. Serbia conceded a horrible hand ball, and have lost a large component of their defense. The Germans played excellently even ignoring the fact that the Aussies made mistakes. They made great runs off the ball, and were able to create opportunity many times. The Germans will walk through this group with 9 points I believe.

    Now for the Italy game. What a shocker. That set piece goal was a good one, but I find it hard to believe that they will be able to see this lead. On to the second half.

    Erm no i'm not wrong i've watched all the World Cup games so far and Australia have played by far the worst and its bound to make any team look good when you play like that.

    By the way Germany are still Ranked Number 2 in the world and Australia are Ranked 52.....

    England Rank 5 - USA Rank 26

    Hmm so as you can see there is a much bigger difference between Germany and Australia than England and USA.

    Just like Brazil have got Korea DPR first match and Brazil are Ranked 1 and Korea DPR are Ranked 55... So i expect that to be a uneven match as well.

    Japan did manage to upset Cameroon.

    Hmm, if you had true facts, you would convey a more interesting argument. Germany are in fact 6, not 2. Also, England is 8 and the US is 14. Australia is in fact 20th.

    As for Paraguay good job. A point will be good for them in this group. I can see them taking second probably. Maybe first, but i doubt it.

    FIFA.com - The FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking World Rankings list for proof.

    Edit: As for the vuvuzela, FIFA and the organizing commitee have stated that they will not be banned unless they interrupt the National Anthems.
