    I like that Ivory Coast team. Leaving out the older players, like Drogba, is a real statement of intent. They have the talent but always fail to impress. If Gervinho can replicate his club form with Roma and Yaya is influential in midfield then I can see this team go far.

    Japan are always entertaining but they haven’t been very impressive leading up to the World Cup. All eyes on them to see what they can do.

    Looks like ESPN are using the FIFA feed for this one.

  3. Jeff says:

    That was a brilliant goal by Honda!

  4. Christopher Harris says:

    Excellent defending so far by Japan. A lot of critical tackles and blocks to prevent CIV from scoring.

  5. Jeff says:

    Wow – two crosses & two headers = two goals & Ivory Coast comes from nowhere to shock Japan (whose goalkeeper did a shocking job in regards to the 2nd goal)
