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.

Cameroon 1-2 Denmark

The most exciting match of the tournament so far. Didn't look much on paper, but these are the kind of games the World Cup throws up, which is why it's always worth taking a look at all of them.

The game was helped by poor defending, yes, but the players were willing to have a crack. Neither team was risk averse, to use a business cliche. Sadly, only Denmark did the business leaving Cameroon to deal with the ignominy of being the first team to be eliminated from the tournament. The Danes have a few big players, and will fancy themselves to beat Japan and take second place in the group on Thursday. We, as they say, shall see...
