Spain – Thanks for coming…

Well, if you were one of those awaiting a World Cup upset you got one this morning when Switzerland beat Spain, 1-nil.

Oh, it was another nil-nil encounter at halftime (9 of those in the first 16 matches of the tournament) but as any soccer fan knows most times a 0-0 match is much more exciting than say 4-2. The tension, the buildup as each team tries to score that first goal is incredible.

Nothing more exciting today than Spain’s relentless attack on the Swiss goalie and his repeated saves and the defensive effort by the Swiss.

Now, after each of the 32 teams has a game in the books there is little doubt that Germany looked the best. On to Round 2 of Group play.
