Alright, day 13.
First – I remember a few days ago, I commented to my brother:
I wonder how the North Korean fans were able to come to South Africa.
Last night he told me something pretty interesting:
There was a news report today that the North Korean fans were supposedly just hired Chinese actors.
To be honest, I can’t say I’d be surprised if that was true, but anyway, here is the article I managed to find online.
And now for the results of day 12 and my tips for day 13!
Results for Matchday 12:
Well.. Group A and B have finished, the teams advancing are:
A – Uruguay[7pt] and Mexico[4pt]
B – Argentina[9pt] and Korea Republic[4pt]
|Match Up||Original Tip||Changes||Result|
|Mexico v Uruguay||Mexico||Uruguay||Uruguay wins 0:1|
|France v South Africa||France||South Africa||South Africa wins 1:2|
|Nigeria v Korea Republic||Nigeria||Korea Republic||Draw at 2:2|
|Greece v Argentina||Argentina||N/A||Argentina wins 0:2|
Tips for Matchday 13:
I’ll add what I think the scores will be too, just to make it a bit more interesting – not that I have any sort of solid basis.
|Match Up||Original Tip||Changes||Comments|
|Slovenia v England||England||N/A||Robert Green or not, England would be pushing really hard to win this – Slovenia is pretty much through already.
There is no way England would want to lose to USA ;].
0:1 to England.
|USA v Algeria||USA||N/A||Well.. basing this off stats again I guess. Similar to England – USA will be pushing to get through.
2:1 to USA.
|Ghana v Germany||Germany||N/A||I know that Ghana needs to win (along with Australia) so that Australia will have a chance, but since “I can score goals apart from penalties.. LOL jk I’m Ghana” – I’m going to stick with Germany.
0:2 to Germany.
|Australia v Serbia||Australia||N/A||No change here. But given I’ve tipped Germany to win and their current state, it’s like the NBA2k10 commentators will say:
“They might be discussing strategy, or perhaps what’s on the dinner menu, because this game(tournament) is pretty much over for them.”
1:0 to Australia.
I shall colour the groups that have been completed (these are based off the inter-IT competition, NOT my blog).
Most Unsuccessful Group(s):
For me – Groups A, C and F are currently ALL wrong.
Group A: 0/6
For me (2 right/2 wrong) – Groups B and Group H (Oh Switzerland, you…).
Group B: 3/6
Most Successful Group(s):
For me – Groups D, E, and G currently each have 3 right and 1 wrong.
