FIFA World Cup 2010 Review by Rita Jain

FIFA World Cup 2010 has completed first half of its group stage and has produced some shocking results in this brief period. 32 teams divided in eight groups have played 2 matches each and the layout of next stage is almost complete. This 11 day extravaganza has been a showcase of some astounding soccer skills, fierce attacking, robust defending and a 'never say die' spirit. Besides this, some magical moments and dominating performances also form the highlights of FIFA world cup 2010.
As expected, football world cup 2010 kicked off with an unmatched excitement when host South Africa took on Mexico. Anyone could hardly forget the goal of Siphiwe Tshabalala (South Africa) which was the first FIFA world cup 2010 goal. From their onwards, started a fierce battle of skills and talent which marked the advent of soccer's greatest event in history. Under rated teams performed exceptionally well , top contenders of the tournament seemed to be caught in a fix and some least expected teams turned the foils emerging as strongest contenders.
The earliest of all surprises came from Argentina, which under the coaching of legendary Maradona seems to have re-discovered its football world. After a very hard time during world cup qualifiers and a testing of 108 players in 20 months, Argentina came out of the blues and became the first team to enter pre quarter finals. Next came in three times world champion Germany, which blasted Australian defense by scoring 4 goals in their first game of FIFA world cup 2010 match schedule. Most talked about side †Brazil was no behind & in spite of an average performance, they managed a win in their first game. The real Brazilian cyclone started against Cote de Ivorie where the five times world champion side showed their metal with a 2-1 win.

However, there have been a few shocking performances by some expected winners of FIFA World cup 2010. Defending champions Italy are facing the heat to cross the group stage. England failed to register a single win in their two matches and are struggling to make it through in the next level. Portugal appeared shabby in their first game against Ivory Cost and ended up with a draw. Another stunner came from Euro champions Spain. Considered as the strongest contender in this tournament, Spain experienced a humiliating defeat by Switzerland in their first game. The biggest shock of FIFA world cup 2010 came from former champions France, who are on the verge of becoming the first team to be knocked off from FIFA world cup 2010.

Under rated teams like Switzerland, New Zealand, Chile, Paraguay, Ghana etc performed exclusively to grab this opportunity of to perform at world stage. Till date the teams which have qualified for the knockout stage are Brazil and Argentina. The teams like Spain, Portugal, Chile, Uruguay, Mexico, Germany, Ghana are just a win away from next stage. All in all, FIFA world cup 2010 promises to bring forth some more interesting moments as the tournament unfolds.

Frankfurt Is The First World Cup Venue For England, How Will You Be Getting There? by Mr Hanna

It's the end of another four year wait the World Cup has rolled around again and this time we're off to Germany. On Saturday the 10th of July in Frankfurt, at 3.00pm, England will kick off against Paraguay in the FIFA World Cup group B and now is the time to ask yourself: where will you be?

Frankfurt has a 48000 seat capacity stadium, protected by a translucent roof allowing that early afternoon light to illuminate the players so capacity crowds can be expected. Let's break down stereotypes and show them how to be gracious guests and supportive fans (and still have the team turn out a result on the day).

It might seem like it's a long way away, but right about now speculation about team selection, managers, fitness and tantrums will be filling out the sports pages until they wrap right around to become front page news. We've had our Svengate, is Rooneygate next? How many more upsets are there in the pipeline before even the first ball is kicked off? To make sure you don't miss out, you should be sourcing your tickets to Germany now (http://fifaworldcup.yahoo.com).

We are already in the fourth sales stage for tickets to the World Cup, and that means its first come first served. Face prices for group stage matches are set at €35 but you can slide all the way up that scale to €600 for the most expensive seats for the final. That's face value - and that's if you can find them!

Of course, if you're feeling lucky, you might want to skip buying tickets at all, and simply enter the competition from Barclaycard to win World Cup tickets (http://www.barclaycard.co.uk/worldcup ), and although it's a high risk strategy only the Ronaldinho's among us can get away with, you could end up with a pair of tickets to each of the 12 venues to watch a FIFA World Cup match, plus accommodation, flights, a pre-paid MasterCard, and more. There are over 500 runners up prizes too, so even if you miss out on the top prize you could still win tickets to see England play firsthand in Germany.

It's only once every four years that the world's footballing cream come together to decide who is the best, and that time has come around for us this year would you want to risk missing out? Remember: it's also only in Germany that the Golden Shoe can be claimed, the Best Young Player settled (Wayne Rooney or Lionel Messi anyone?) and the tournament Golden Ball awarded and then there is the small matter of the FIFA World Cup trophy itself.

With the pre-World Cup friendlies underway, there's a chance to check out the competition and see who we think will live up to the hype with some of the most combustible teams and wildfire personalities coming to Germany this Summer, you need to be doing your research now so that come the big day you can book your place in the terraces to watch this year's heroes and villains break hearts and become legends.
