World Cup Match Day Moments - 30TH June 2014

World Cup Match Day Moments - 30TH June 2014

Today is another day over in Brazil and if it`s as exciting and dramatic football-wise, as the one we experienced yesterday then we really are in for a treat.

Yesterday, in the last sixteen stage we were treated t a thrilling comeback from the Dutch who overcame a gallant Mexico side, 2-1, with the former blue Arjen Robben providing the spark the Dutch needed to instigate a late comeback.

In the other fixture Costa Rica, who topped England`s group, overcame Greece in a penalty shoot-out after the Greek side had equalized in stoppage time.

Today, on the menu, we have,

- France v Nigeria (17:00 UK time)
- Germany v Algeria (21:00 UK time)

The French side, managed by the former blue Didier Deschamps; have gone about their business in spectacular fashion and could be one of the sides to watch. However, Nigeria will certainly give the French a decent game and this is a tie that could be as close as all the others we`ve witnessed so far in the knockout stages.

The later fixture sees Germany (let`s hope Andre Schurrle gets a start) also engage with African opposition, taking on an Algerian side who surpassed all expectations to climb out of the group stages, but can they topple the efficient and effective Germans?

As usual please feel free to leave your views, pre-match, during the match and post match in our comments facility but please, as we always ask, keep them civil.

Moses was pretty ***** when he first got him but the year he wasted at Liverpool has made him even worse.

In regards to African teams in the WC I think they can count themselves as unlucky but also naive. Africa's best team (IMO) for the 2006 and 2010 WC was Ivory Coast but they got stuck in the group of death on both occasions which is unlucky. But this year they had a chance to progress but blew it against Greece. This WC I thought Ghana had a really good team but they messed up by being the typical African stereotype of a team(no offence). Lots of energy and good going forward but are ruined by a ***** def and poor GK as well as their forward players being selfish and greedy. Nigeria for me are the best African team because they're the most balanced. Their def and GK are good but they come up short in the final third.

And I hope Jose is watching Omeruo he's been very impressive. Let's just hope that if he does go out on loan he goes to a decent PL club, not some ***** team in the Bundesliga like where Kalas ended up.
