Elite Eight

Posted: June 30, 2010 by amyaubrey in Soccer, World Cup

I’m pretty sure they don’t call it the Elite 8 in soccer but that’s what i call it.  The World Cup has been narrowed down to eight teams.  Today was a very big game against Spain & my boyfriend Cristiano’s team, Portugal.  The US is gone & so are some of the early favorites, such as France, England & the last World Cup champ Italy.

There will be a break for a few days & the next game will be on Friday & here’s what we’ve got left in Eastern Standard Time…

Friday, 10 AM: Netherlands v Brazil

Friday, 2 PM: Uruguay v Ghana

Saturday, 10 AM: Argentina v Germany

Saturday: 2 PM: Paraguay v Spain

These should all be good games, especially Argentina-Germany.  All I know is that I’m in a couple of contests & I’ve got 2 of the 8 teams left so I’ve got a pretty good chance of winning!
