> This has been an amazing week! Had anyone told me that in the final 8 we would see the USA, Turkey, Senegal and South Korea, I would have definitely thought they were crazy.  

Yeah, this tournament has turned out to be the most unexpected and weirdest WC of all times (I guess)! Either Turkey or Senegal will play a semifinal! Could anyone expect that?

Only Brasil and Spain left now of the "big" teams. I'm glad that Korea put an end to Italy! :-) 
It's really true wa can't make any predictions in this WC. Now most people would like to see Brasil-Spain in the final, which probably would be the most "fair" regarding the playing so far.
But in this sensational WC, it could as well be South Korea vs. Senegal! Wanna bet? :-)


> Spain was very fortunate that Ireland seems to have never practiced taking a penalty kick. How does a team miss 4 our of 7 penalties at this level? The Spaniard coach got away with having sat Morientes and Raul too early.  
> I am no longer making any predictions because I have been extremely wrong thuis far.  I am just going to sit back and enjoy the rest of it.  May the best team win!
