Is anyone else noticing the inappopriateness of the ball for powered long shots?!!

Seriously, adidas should stop trying to renivent the ball every four years. FIFA should poll the players/leagues which ball they most enjoy using and go with that. Of course - there's probably a multi billion dollar contract between FIFA and adidas that would put a dampener on such a common sense idea

Argentina vs Nigeria >> Worst coach or not, I personally would expect to see the Argies prevail, maybe 2-0

England vs USA >> I don't think this will be the walkover expected by some section of the British media, I'll go for 1-1
Great work J7!! You must have one of those Back To The Future Sports Almanacs

Here's my predictions for Day3! It would be good to get one right for a change......

DAY 3

SERBIA v GHANA: 1-1
GERMANY v AUSTRALIA: 2-0
NETHERLANDS v DENMARK: 2-0


If any of you folks are on Twitter, there are a few celebs that seem to be keen on the world cup and comment on it - including during the game >

*Simon Pegg
*Bill Bailey
*Russell Brand
*Peter Serafinowicz - who posted 'activate invisiball' when Green fumbled
*Wil Wheaton - he managed to incorporate a SW and Pen n Paper RPG reference into his into world cup tweets yesterday

You could also just look at what everyone is saying about it via http://twitter.com/#search?q=%23worldcup ... including Darth Vader: Do or do not, there is no tie
