Almost like a bad flashback.

Spain starts brilliantly, a young energetic and upcoming team, and flounders badly.

France raises all sorts of doubts, an aging team, but suddenly experience, steadiness and creativity come back when most needed. Not that a silly umpire help is not welcome.....

I am speechless. And ecstatic! France has finally erased the awful, AWFUL, performance of Japan Korea. But French supporters are left emotional wrecks.

At any rate, now comes Brazil and after today's game with Ghana, I am hardly less confident than 3 hours ago....

The head goal of Vieira as a departing note for the day.

My sympathies (weak as they are, me being Swedish and all) actually swayed from Spain to France during the second half. I'm not quite sure why, but it became apparent to me as I didn't cry bloody foul when Henry took the dive that led to the 2-1 free kick.

May they beat Brazil!

No need for debating about age. It's just that the best players available should play, regardless of their age. And this seemed to be the case, France played their best game in this world cup yet. Looking forward to the revanche with Brazil!

Poor Spain. France were just too good for them yesterday and we could see a classic Brazil - France on Saturday afternoon.

Quico - what about Spain playing 7 games - your prediction? And England? The English I know prefer to win ratehr than play well as in 2002 and still get knokced out. Only the English can complain when they win.

I still tip them to get at least to the final and they will beat Portugal on Saturday.
