2012 Day 3 Preview - Sun April 1

Five games up tonight and a couple that should be decent anyways.

Scotland vs Serbia, 5 p.m. - This game could be interesting from a parity standpoint, especially since its the first game for each team. Scotland had a rough pool in 2011 so no way to know if they were half-decent or not. Norway played Serbia in 2011 and it was an OK game. Serbia wins 3-1.

Ireland vs Somalia, 6 p.m. - This will be an eyesore and I feel bad for both of these teams. I feel bad for Somalia because it's the first-ever game and they don't have a chance. I feel bad for Ireland because no one wants to mercilessly beat a helpless team. Ireland doesn't need to worry about goal differential thanks to their Sudan result so hopefully they let off the gas and this doens't get to double-digits. Ireland wins 8-0.

Portugal vs Germany, 7 p.m. - I want to watch this game because I'm interested in whether or not Germany can get it together and play like a team. Sure Germany has talent, but does it have the mental fortitude to get the big wins? Portugal will be a good test because the team can score goals and is decent overall. Gemany wins 5-2.

France vs South Korea, 8 p.m. - First game for both teams and I need to watch because its a Group D game. Don't expect it to be close though. France has speed, talent and size and South Korea is an enigma. First game ever for South Korea means growing pains and they're in for a rough ride. France wins 7-0.

Colombia vs Jamaica, 9 p.m. - This is the game of the night and we'll be closing down the soccer centre again. Colombia has some talent and they won't get pushed around. Jamaica has a history of losing its first game of the tournament. I still think Jamaica has too much talent to blow this one. Jamaica wins 4-3.

I heard Julio and Riggs got it on last night on the way back to Saskatoon. No wonder the blogs are filled with crap from these two guys. Only losers have that much time to blog.

Definitely a solid game from Scotland. Their second goal was a great one (not sure if it tops that ROI volley from, but it was the goal of the day for sure!). They might not do a lot this year, but with all that youth they could be a great team in a couple years!

It blows my mind how anonymous people haven't caught on blogs is plural, Riggs posts on every blog, Julio posts in one blog.
I actually saw Julio last night with Collins in Regina, and Riggs never made the trip to Saskatoon.

Its funny that you complain that they blog, as I bet your eager to read the blogs every day. As Collin's blog gets an average of 1000 views a day.
