2012 Day 9 Preview - Sat April 7

Six games up today and a couple should be OK.

Italy vs South Korea, 4 p.m. - Italy has had one good game and one stinker so it will be interesting to see if they can show some skill and get a result. South Korea tries hard but is outclassed in the tournament and will probably only beat Greece. Italy wins 3-1.

Sudan vs Scotland, 6 p.m. - Scotland has been building up confidence so lets see if they can give Sudan a game. Will need to be pretty well perfect for it to be close, but strange things happen to Sudan. That said, Sudan is a very skilled squad. Sudan wins 5-2.

Ireland vs Serbia, 7 p.m. - These teams played in 2011 and Ireland stomped them. I can't think of any reason why the result should different this time around. Ireland wins 8-0.

Jamaica vs Afghanistan, 8 p.m. - Must-win for Afghanistan now that Jamaica has the big Canada victory. This will be an entertaining matchup because Afghanistan is quick enough to cause Jamaica's back line some problems. Still, Jamaica is undefeated after three games. Jamaica wins 3-2.

Poland vs Portugal, 9 p.m. - Poland got a needed win and should roll Portugal. The Portuguese always put in a good effort, but there's no way it can compare to the Polish talent. Poland wins 5-1.

Norway vs France, 10 p.m. - Game of the night and will decide Group D. I'll cover this in my game preview.

I don't see what everyone sees in Poland, nothing special at all and don't have a chance at making it to the finals. They got lucky beating Germany last night which doesn't say much because Germany didn't look that great either...

I will take care of the last game using simple logic:

Italy beat es by one
Both es and Norway beat Greece by one which makes them equal.
If they are equal Italy is better than Norway
France beat Italy by 5

This means that France will win by more than 5, I would say around 9-1.

Luckily for Norway, even though it will be a tough Loss at least they have already qualified for the 1/4 finals along with France, since they are winners.

haha Riggs.. So true. You guys looked a lot better against Greece. Group d will go down to the last game and probably be decided by goal differential.
