World Cup 2010: Day 6 Recap

Jun 16, 2010

Day 6 ended the first round of the World Cup in South Africa. There was a shocking upset, a silencing of the vuvuzelas, and another game full of chances but little goals to show for it. Let’s take a look at the details…


Switzerland 1 Spain 0

There were no holes in the Swiss today as they completely shut down the #1 ranked Spain winning 1-0. Switzerland’s defense was the key in this match. They let Spain come at them throughout the whole match, but whenever Spain came in close to score, the Swiss defense was too strong to get a decent shot on net.

Switzerland had very few offensive opportunities, but they scored their one goal off a long ball play. Everyone loves the underdog so Switzerland has made headlines all over the World by possibly taking away the Spain’s chances of advancing to the elimination round.


Uruguay 3 South Africa 0

The crowd was stunned has the home favorite Bafana Bafana South African team lost 3-0 to a superior Uruguayan team. It was 1-0 when Uruguayan Luis Suarez played dead in the 18-yard-box earning teammate Diego Forlan a penalty kick. It was hard to see at full speed, but the replay clearly shows that Luis was acting and embellished the foul. Nonetheless Diego converted the penalty easily for his second consecutive goal of the day. After Alvaro Cavani headed in Uruguay’s 3rd goal, the vuvuzela horns had almost completely stopped for the first time during any game at these World Cup preliminaries.


Chile 1 Honduras 0

Chile beat Honduras 1-0 after a game full of chances but no goals. Chile clearly dominated the game but either the players aren’t used to the new World Cup Soccer ball or the goalies are standing on their heads. There were lots of chances to score in this game but only one goal. Honduras will have to pull off two big upsets over Spain and Switzerland if they hope to have any chance to advance… good luck!


After round one of the preliminary round robin games, experts have made their predictions on who the potential winners could be:


  • Brazil
  • Spain
  • Argentina
  • Germany
  • Netherlands
