I'm not going to South Africa. So instead I'm gonna try and watch a bit if not all of every game at work, or at home or in a bar or wherever. On the telly. With a beer. And I'm gonna predict who I think is gonna win. And talk about football stuff. So there.

Brazil 2-1 North Korea

Ah, at last. The Brazilians. Time to breathe life into a cagey tournament, where goals are at a premium. The Zilians looked good, Robinho in particular. Their first goal was a stunner if Maicon meant it, and a flukey stunner if he didn't. Elano passed in the second, before the impressive northern Koreans grabbed a well taken what proved to be just a consolation goal. Just the four teams in Group H left to open their accounts tomorrow, then we'll get to the second round of group games, during which some teams may find themselves getting eliminated.
