Laos 3, Greece 1 - Greece finally fell back to earth after riding on the clouds of overachievement for five games. Laos controlled this game completely after Greece scored the opening goal off of a free kick, and it was only a matter of time before the Laosians put it away. Greece gave a complete effort so give them credit, but I don't think there was any doubt that Laos was going to win it. I predicted 4-2 for Laos.
Ireland 7, Canada 2 - I think Dave Brown scored five goals for Ireland and near the end of the game he wasn't even trying to score any more. This was over in everyone's minds after about five minutes and it was really over when the score was 4-0 with 11 minutes gone. I feel Canada's pain - Norway got crushed by Ireland too - and the Irish are going to be a tough stop for El Salvador. I predicted 6-1 for Ireland.
El Salvador 1, France 0 - I didn't see much of this game because I was preparing for my own game. From what I did see, it looked to be evenly matched and a pretty defensive game. I definitely saw the free kick in the second overtime by Shawn Riggs of El Salvador. If you're going to win in the last minute, there's not much better way to do it than with a beautiful free kick around the wall and into the top corner. I predicted 3-1 for France.
Poland 3, Norway 0 - I already rehashed this in my game recap.
