France v Argentina had everything you could hope from a knockout game. The lead changing hands, magnificent goals and probably the right result in the end.
Uruguay v Portugal had a difficult task to live up to such shimmering brilliance. The Cavani goal on the back of the most glorious ‘one two’ came exceedingly close. One things for sure, Uruguay will be difficult to beat. I keep expecting Simeone to be their manager.
On to today….
Spain should be too strong for the hosts unless that home advantage proves to be a following wind blowing the Russians to victory.
Again, Eddie and VP’s Croatia should have too much quality for the Danes, whose great journey seems destined to end here.
