I thought it was pretty bad, knowing that both teams usually play on a much higher level. There were hardly any goal possibilities, and a lot of technical difficulties in ballhandling, which is a surprise in its own for these two teams.
Without Drogba, Cote d'Ivoire is missing the soul. The whole team changed in behaviour and spirit after he got in. And Portugal? That's not the Luis Figo Portugal anymore. It's all about Christiano Ronaldo now, which is fine by a player of his class.
Brazil - North Korea is a match that will be like Germany - Australia. 4-0 or higher for Brazil. Okay, I have no clue about North Korean soccer. But, it's Brazil, with Kaka, Robinho, Lucio, Maicon. Some people say the Koreans might surprise everybody against Brazil. I'm sure they'll build up a human pyramid about their post and defending it like stormtroopers with direct orders by the Emperor. But if they are the Empire, Kaka is Luke Skywalker, Lucio Chewbacca (his gaze is very similar often) and Robinho Yoda, and we all know how that ended.
The Rebels won. Sorry, James-Earl-Jones-Fans.
