10:00 am Setanta FA CUP Semi Final Manchester United vs Manchester City
Next up is SUPER SOCCER SATURDAY for the Women's division starting with:
5:00 pm Germany vs ChileTwo former Champions will rumble in the first game of a solid double header. Expect a tight game which will go down to the wire. This should decide who comes out first in their pool. Polish up your drum cause this ones going to be a banger.
6:00 pm Ukraine vs EnglandPart two of the double header see last years champions taking on the tournaments best dressed team. This should be Ukraine's toughest test of the round robin as England will be out looking for blood. This could be a potential preview of the final. Though as I am currently watching England play, they are looking less than impressive. England are currently tied with Ukraine on points and have the exact same +/-. This game will be the decider!
After the double header we move to a quad of Mens games starting with
7:00 pm Ukraine vs CanadaI can barely figure Group D out. As far as I can tell Ukraine is not mathematically eliminated yet but they will need to beat both Canada and Jamaica. Canada will look to bounce back from a disappointing defeat to Poland and needs to prove they belong in the 2nd round. Should make for a great game.
8:00 pm Jamaica vs PolandThis one has the makings of an epic game. Poland come in having looked very strong so far. On the other hand Jamaica seems to be just straddling the boarder of being a contender. Will be interesting to see how both teams will come out. I believe Jamaica will once again be missing some personnel so that's something to watch.
9:00 pm Afghanistan vs Nigeria
I am writing this before the France - Nigeria game so things may have changed by then but if Nigeria was to beat France this game will be huge. Whichever team loses will almost certainly be eliminated and if Afghanistan can pull one out it will set them up with a huge match against champs-to-be France. A real meaningful game.
10:00 pm Laos vs El SalvadorHopefully this lives up to my hype of game of the round robin. I have big expectations for this one.While Laos has already sealed their spot in the next round, El Salvador needs this one to advance. This should be a very offensive games with goals galore. If El Salvador does win it means that fan favorites Sudan are eliminated. So I am imposing a curfew on all Laosian players and trust me I will be calling all of you to ensure you are in bed. Yep starting with you Tony!
Tomorrow is probably the best/most important day of games so..... MAKE IT DOWN THERE!!!!!!
Group standings to follow.
