It's only 36 minutes gone in the Chile-Honduras match and I have to post this! I had high hopes for this group, feeling that Group H would far and away be the most exciting in the tournament. It has not been a disappointment so far. The pace has been lightning quick, there has been lots of action end to end, lots of great plays by Chile, several set pieces with wonderfully close free kicks and tons of shots on goal. And a goal in the first half! There have also been some hard challenges with lots of yellow cards flying around. I am so happy that FINALLY - here is a REALLY GOOD GAME in this World Cup.

I'm going back. Let's hope the rest of the match lives up to the first 36 minutes. I predicted a tie although Chile looks the much more talented team. :)

*sigh* South America is full of GREAT players and national teams. It's too bad they cannot ALL participate in the World Cup. Chile beat Colombia yesterday in a great game consisting of 6 goals, and showed that they are worthy of a place in WC 2010.

I thought I'd post a picspam of some of the pretties playing in this tournament. While I love Argentina, there are some other countries worth watching. Here is a sample--Mati Fernandez of Chile (Villareal in Spain):
