Well, the World Cup is quickly drawing to a conclusion. After a flurry of qualification games, the “round of sixteen is over and we’re down to eight games remaining. I’m surprised at how much I’ve been paying attention. It’s sort of fun, even if I don’t understand the esoteric rules of big-league soccer.
The quarterfinals begin on Friday. Japan is out after losing yesterday 0-1 to Turkey. Although they lost, Japan should be proud that they made it so far; they’ve never been out of the qualifying rounds before. Yeah, Japan!
Korea won over Italy in double overtime 2-1 last night. It was an upset and the Italians looked so disappointed. But the Korean team was jubilant. How well will they stand up against Spain in the quarterfinals? I guess we’ll have to wait until Saturday to see.
