World Cup 2010: Day 3

Jun 13, 2010

Someone has finally stepped forward at the World Cup and said “We are the Leaders” as Germany puts forth the first big bunch of goals in South Africa. Germany scored 4 of them against Australia, who aren’t that bad of a team, but totally in a different class of soccer this day. Here’s all the details of all three games on day 3 of the World Cup round robin play.

Germany 4 Australia 0

Podolski PowerPodolski Power

It was a total explosive start for the Germans as they showed potent power and relentless determination with an offensive onslaught of the down-underachieving Australians. It started with a huge boot from Lukas Podolski off a cross that blasted so hard through the goalie that it speared the netting without any loss of velocity. Then Miroslav Klose caught the ball with one of his famous headers that reached higher than the Australian goalkeeper could reach with his own hands. At 2-0 the Germans added two more goals late in the game to seal the victory and statement that they are the team to beat this World Cup.

Ghana 1 Serbia 0

Ghana GreatnessGhana Greatness

A well-deserved victory for Ghana but it couldn’t have been more of a lucky goal that actually determined the win. What happened was quite strange. A ball launched across the 18- yard-box, but away from any danger, was touched by the hand of a sprawling Serbian defender.

Zero Chance ZdravkoZero Chance Zdravko

His name is Zdravko Kuzmanovic and the poor guy is going to be remembered as making one of the “stupidest” plays ever at a World Cup. People are saying it was stupid because there was absolutely no reason for him to touch the ball with his hand, and it cost his team the game as Ghana scored on the penalty-shot awarded in the final minutes of the game.

Slovenia 1 Algeria 0


Another “Whoopie Daisie” goal, similar to the goal scored by the Americans just the day before, slipped by the Algerian goalkeeper to give Slovenia the 1-0 win. Algeria goalie Faouzi Chaouchi will be remembered to let an easy shot from 25 yards slip right through his arms. The goalkeepers of the World Cup might have to practice getting used to the South African stadiums’ turf, because there is a lot of talk about how the players are not used to the way the ball is bouncing.

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
