LIVE Sunday 2nd Round World Cup

Soccer- round of 16 continues!

The two winners today will face off on Saturday, July 5th.

1) First game today is Netherlands - Mexico in Fortaleza. It starts at 9am pacific, 10am mountain, 11am central, noon, eastern, 5pm in England, and 6pm in the Netherlands most of western Europe.

Heat check time for the Dutch. Mexico advanced on the strength of their defense. Mexico has reached the round of 16 for five straight world cups and has lost in the round of 16 for five straight world cups. One might think of them as in a rut. Netherlands think they have an easy route to the semifinals. We'll see.

2) The second game of the day is Costa Rica - Greece in Recife and will start at 1pm pacific, 2pm in Costa Rica, 9pm in England, and 10pm in western Europe including Greece.

Absolutely no one saw this matchup. No one knows what to make of Costa Rica. Everyone knows what to make of Greece: they don't respect them but they fear that they will make a run through the tournament playing park your bus ball. Expect 1-0.

=================================================================

Con game player of the day: Holmvoka!!!!!!!!!

61 phat points. He won the day's honors because he had Colombia a little higher than most of us-29th. It seemed like almost all of us had Colombia at 27 or 24. Way to go Holms.

Con Game Sepp Blatter player of the day is Wastrel

Three of us yesterday got rid of the stench that is Septic. Wastrel-time to step up.

Where's Mr. ELO?

Meh. 914 points. Only one to cross 900 so far.

The race for the Lantern Rouge

Davie Porter-Zoo is a freakin' genius at this. Colombia at 6 points? Takes a special person to do that. conork's making a late run for the LR but I'm thinking it may be too little too late. Of davie's top 10, he's already lost five: Spain (32), Portugal (28), Uruguay (26), Ivory Coast (25) and Italy (23) for a total of

Updated rankings. Here are Saturday's rankings.Same leader!!! Actually same top five. And 6 & 7 just dropped out of the four way tie for 4th yesterday.

Most of the changes today were minor, incremental. Biggest jump in placings was like three or four.

This time with the rankings I have which teams of everyone's top 8 have been eliminated so far with their total points. I say top 8 because it is implied that the top 8 will win their round of 16 matches. That's the hope anyways. So which of your ranked teams 32-25 are out? Perhaps that may give us an idea of who is strong heading into the end of the tournament.
