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.

Ivory Coast 0-0 Portugal

The biggest match-up in the first round of games. From what I could see while glancing over my shoulder in between feigning work, the Ivory Coast dominated this, with wave after wave of attack, without actually really threatening. I don't tip Portugal to make it out of the group, because Ronaldo aside, there's no other world-class player in their ranks. IC looked strong all over the shop. If Drogba had been on from the start, they could well have snatched this.
