Team: El Salvador - The only team that I didn't predict to win. Pulled off the upset over the best team of the tournament in France. Not the most impressive showing but got the job done. I'm sure they will take it.
Player: David Brown - ROI - I'm glad his name is easy to spell as I am constantly typing it on here. Added 5 more to his count yesterday, including a couple brilliant ones. People say that they need to mark him but it's not that easy as I'm pretty sure that was Canada's plan. Easy to say but harder to do.
Goal: David Brown - ROI - Scored an absolute ripper from the right touchline. I had a great view of this and I'm still not sure how he managed to fit it in there. Honorable mention to both Jay Tomchuk for his slow roller that found his way back the Canada keeper and half their defense. Also to Sean Riggs for his game winner against France. Good free kick.
Gaffe: Mason Bulych - France - I hate to do this to Mason but hitting the roof in the 9th minute of a 10 minute extra time is a killer. Really cost them the game. Sucks as that game looked like it was on it's way to a shoot out.
Call: France vs ES ref - Caught that blatant hand ball which would have been France's first goal. The France attacker punched the ball into the net and then started to celebrate. Happened really quickly and was tough to catch. Unfortunately it knocked out the favorites.
Attempt to Win: Canada - I love the idea of being down 4-1 and down to your last resort - pulling the fire alarm. You know the old saying, if you can't win then evacuate the entire building. Unfortunately this was not effective as I'm not sure a single person moved. Tried twice though.
