On to Group D, where Ghana came out as the surprise winners, after a horrible mistake by Zdravko Kuzmanovic, stupidly giving Ghana an 85th minute penalty, converted by Asamoah Gyan.

No surprise in the Germany Australia match, which produced four goals, all in Schwarzer’s net, setting Germany as the early favorites (without seeing the Netherlands, Spain and Brazil play) and the first team to put on a really impressive match, finally.
