the knock out begins...

after the round robin part, the world cup stepped into the most amazing part. the do or die, win or cry.... i just love the tension! before going to that part, lets update the previous results. ronaldo atlast got his goal crossed the record of Pele and standin with gerd muller. one more and he is immortal! or may be i should say he started moving his body. coz whenever he moves he scores..:P... ok ok. not 100% true. but true enough. and the most fantastic part for the brazilian fans is that brazil is back to their normal skill. just hope that it stays long enough to win the 'hexa'. and everybody knows its not going to be that easy this time. all the powerful teams are on the second round, except czeck republic. too bad they are out. but ghana got what they deserved. i expected the argentina vs holland match to be rather exciting. as argentina just beat serbia 6-0 and holland on the attacking mode too. but u have to give away smaller games for bigger ones. both team just wanted to be sure that their players are not injured and without a yellow card. its all in the game. ivory cost was the most fantastic team that failed in the grp matches. they were excellent on the field, with skill, speed and power.

so the first two matches are played. and as a result argentina is going to face the host germany in the quarter finals! my my. that will be a match! im sure. sweden was not upto the standard against germany. they got agitated and lost their hope. the penalty sweden missed was the greatest chance to come back to the race.

argentina vs mexico. result 2-1. mexico on fire the first 20 minutes. and to me it seemed the first two goals are scored by them!... i mean i saw the first goal for argentina was an own goal. or may be not. after getting the upper hand in 6th minute by marcuez, they just lost the magic by themselves. the whole 90 minutes was well played by both the teams. in the extra time what rodriguez done was simply superb. it was a spectacular goal. receiving a ball with chest the volleyin it on the fly. two things i must say about the match, first - the argentine defender should have got a red card for the foul, and second - i think it wasnt offside when argentina almost scored at the second half. anway the result is 2-1 and argentina won. congrats to argentina and sympathy for mexico.

argentina better shape up... or else they will humiliated like hell for sure ... they have merely survived this game (though the last goal was superb)... but this won't work against the germans, will it?

i hope i don't get an actual heart attack on friday :P (i almost had one today :D )

dipu, is buzy with our iut alumni association and searching of a new job. he will manage within next 10 days. thats what i hope.

I was going to ask about dipu too. He was like just vanished!
Anyway Argentina was lucky, because gabriel milito should be booked red when he missed the pass from the gk and fouled the approaching maxican striker. As he was the last diffender, rule says RED :P

But the ref was kind enough to show just a yellow!
