Five games for today and I can't say I'm excited for any of the. Might be taking a break from the soccer centre to let my liver heal
Botswana vs Somalia, 4 p.m. - This might be a decent game for seeing goals scored but not if you're interested in watching good team shape. Both teams love to push forward to the extent that they don't like leaving anyone back. Botswana wins 6-5.
Germany vs Vietnam, 6 p.m. - Germany is going to score tons of goals and is not going to let up until it has 15. Germany is angry about the Poland game and needs to prove it can hang with the big boys.
El Salvador vs South Korea, 7 p.m. - Well... Italy barely beat South Korea and Italy also barely beat El Salvador. So this one should be close. That said, I think El Salvador is a bit better than what they've shown so far. El Salvador wins 5-1.
Afghanistan vs Northern Ireland, 8 p.m. - Afghanistan was impressive on Saturday night and Northern Ireland was impressive against Jamaica in that tie. If Northern Ireland can play a solid defensive game then I think they'll keep this one close. However, I don't think NI has the skill to match with Afghanistan. Afghanistan wins 5-2.
Colombia vs Canada, 9 p.m. - Let's see if Canada can play with some urgency and can manage to score a goal after its goose egg against Jamaica. Skill-wise and structure-wise Canada has all of the advantages so it will depend on if the players decide to give their game some purpose. Canada wins 4-2.
