2012 Day 1 Preview - Fri March 30
Only one game in the schedule today but its a good one and is must-see for any fan of the tournament. It's a Group A match between defending champion Ireland and 2011 upstart Sudan. Ireland has lost three key goal-scorers from last year but it shouldn't have much trouble replacing that output. Ireland has always had a wealth of talent and it has four titles to show for it. Sudan showed last year that it also has a great deal of talent and is capable of scoring some amazing goals. If Sudan returns the same team as 2011 then Ireland could be hard-pressed to match up with speed in the midfield. That speed was what undid El Salvador and its really unparalled by any other WCP squad. That said, Ireland aren't the champs for nothing and I fully expect them to take care of business tonight. The crowd should be big, the atmosphere should be electric, and Ireland should win. Shamrocks 6-4. Actual score was Ireland 3-2.
