The second round!

So the knockout stages are on us, exciting stuff. We have two big games to look forward to tonight.

Germany - Sweden is a big one, hopefully the Swedes will knock out the hosts, a close one is on the cards. Sweden will have to be more clinical in front of goal to get through this game, they could be helped by a possible return to action for the injured Ibrahimovic. Germany have never been defeated at this stage of a world cup so far, can the Swedes be the team? Germany have looked fairly good against weak opposition so far but Sweden provide a real test. I can see this one going to penalties perhaps. A fascinating battle: Shit, bring it on!

Argentina - Mexico: can't really see past the Argies for this one even if Borgetti is back (I don't yet know if he is). Mexico have been creating a few chances lately though and if they find their shooting boots for once could cause an upset. Stranger things have happened but I very much doubt this will eventuate.
