Might have been the best day of games so far so I have a lot to work with.
Game: Can't pick one. The block of games that contained Poland vs Canada, Greece vs France, and Germany vs Ukraine were all great. Really good stuff from all those teams.
Team: Greece. Tempting to pick Poland because of their strong result against Canada or Germany because they played well. But Greece produced the most surprising result. Came in with a solid game plan and stuck with it. Soaked up the pressure and scored whenever they got a chance. Never trailed throughout the entire game. Greece are for real!
Player: David Patterson - Germany. Bossed the show throughout the entire game against Ukraine. Gave Ukraine fits at the back as they could not get the ball off him. Scored the first goal with a great lobbing effort over a huge keeper.
Tackle: ZACH Cabylis - Greece. This was a football hit. I was commentating when this things happened. Wow, he sprinted 20 yards and put his shoulder into the poor France player. You could hear it from where I was sitting. Certainly deserving of the yellow card he got. Props to the France player for getting up after that one.
Goal: Greece's 4th. Missed the goal scorer but it was great. Broke down the right side and looked like he had run himself out of room only to unleash a devastating blast that nearly took off the France keepers head. Could have been Patterson's lob or Sarazen's nice flick and hit for Poland. But I'll stick with this one.
Gaffe: Greece's defense after they scored. Every time Greece scored they forgot that they had to defend after. Never have I seen a team get scored on so quickly, and so often right after they've scored.
Save: Michal Bandula - Poland. Not really a specific save but more the entire body of work. Another terrific performance. A few good ones again today. Greece keeper had everything stick to him didn't let out a single rebound so he deserves a shout too.
My apologies to Zach Cabylis', didn't get his name right in my broadcast. Was not intentional! Check back today as I will my Best of for the entire 1st week. Peace.
