YB Italy vs. YB Canada- 5-3 Italy.
Germany vs. Afghanistan- Germany 6-3. Germany came out strong, and easily handled Afghanistan. Afghanistan didn't play that bad, but there was just no way that they were going to stop Germany's superior offence. Afghanistan looks like they'll be the team that gives a top team a run for their money, like Austria in Group D, or Botswana in Group A.
Ukraine vs. Greece- Ukraine 6-2. Ukraine still looks like a strong contender to get out of their group, although they scored most of their goals on free kicks. They won't get so lucky against teams with better goalkeeping. Still, Ukraine looked dominant against Greece, and anyone writing them off in the group will be in for a surprise.
England vs. Serbia- Tied 3-3. A exciting back and forth game. While the teams may not have the highest skill levels, they can still provide some exciting soccer to watch. England was once again the victim of momentary lapse in focus that allowed Serbia to quickly get back in the game.
Portugal vs. Nigeria- Nigeria 9-5. This was a crazy game. Nigeria was pummeling Portugal all through the first half. Portugal scored a couple quick goals after halftime to make it look like we might get a game, but then Nigeria answered right back. Nigeria looks to be back on track after a dismal last two years, and are definitely the new frontrunners for that second playoff spot. Both teams defences need some work if they want any chance at winning a playoff game though.
