Match Highlights – Netherlands vs Mexico

Posted on 29 Jun, 2014, by in Soccer

There are rules in the World Cup, and one of them is that Mexico never get past the round of 16. A bad match from the Netherlands for most of it didn’t matter in the end, as a brilliant goal from Gio Dos Santos wasn’t enough to hold onto the win, as a powerful equalizer from Wesley Sneijder and eventually an injury time penalty from Klaas Jan Huntelaar put the Dutch in the quarterfinals with a 2-1 win.

Luis Suarez, Savior of Uruguay & Destroyer of England

Posted on 19 Jun, 2014, by in Soccer

Great players don’t need a lot. Just a chance, or two. Luis Suarez made a laughing stock of the England defense, coming back from an injury to give Uruguay a 2-1 win that puts them right back in the heat of things in Group D, showing once again just how great of a striker he really is. More

Some might say that it’s the end of an era, for but now, it’s simply Chile beating Spain 2-0 with goals from Eduardo Vargas and Charles Aranguiz, which means the defending world champions won’t be in the round of 16 while Chile secure their qualification from one of the top two spots in Group B.

Match Highlights – Australia vs Netherlands

The best match of the World Cup so far as Australia were able for about an hour to outplay the Netherlands until they ran out of gas. Eventually, the Dutch managed to come through with a dramatic 3-2 victory that keeps them on top of Group B and pretty much secures their place in the round of 16 unless something completely unexpected happens as the trio of Arjen Robben, Robin van Persie and Memphis Depay scored for the Oranje.

Germany Beat Portugal

Posted on 16 Jun, 2014, by in Soccer

It seems to be that the biggest matches also give us the most one sided outcomes in this tournament so far, as Germany demolish Portugal 4-0 with Thomas Muller scoring the first hat trick of the World Cup and the Portuguese side finishing with only 10 men after Pepe was sent off for another stupid reaction from the centre back.
