World Cup 2006 Group Stage Review - Phase One - Part Two

Every one of the 32 groups have played one match each as the World Cup has started in unstable mold, however are things working out as expected for the top choices or are the underdogs having a say in procedures? This is a short round-up of Groups E to H, of the outcomes as they remain after one match.

Gathering E

1. Czech Republic 3pts, 2. Italy 3pts, 3. Ghana 0pts, 4. USA 0pts

The Czech Republic indicated they have genuine dull steed accreditations in the wake of clearing aside the USA. Accessible at 33/1 to win the competition by and large before commence and even cash to win their first match, the Czechs appear to be a group worth after. They enjoyed only five minutes to reprieve the stop through Jan Koller, who later went off harmed, while new Arsenal marking Tomas Rosicky struck on 36 and 76 to seal an insistent triumph.

Infamous moderate starters Italy squandered no time themselves as they beat Ghana 2-0. After rushes of Italian weight, Andrea Pirlo at last got five minutes previously half-time for the 1/2 Azzurri. Substitute Vincenzo Iaquinta included a second a short ways from time.

Gathering F

1. Australia 3pts, 2. Brazil 3pts, 3. Croatia 0pts, 4. Japan 0pts

Japan looked set to beat Australia until a staggering breakdown a short ways from time. Shunsuke Nakamura gave Japan the lead following 26 minutes however two objectives from Everton's Tim Cahill following 84 and 89 minutes and a stoppage time objective from John Aloisi skilled the 13/10 Socceroos an impossible triumph.

Pre-competition top picks Brazil looked not as much as persuading as they beat Croatia 1-0. Kaka scored a fabulous objective a moment before the break yet Croatia were blameworthy of misusing a few possibilities as Carlos Alberto Parreira's side guaranteed a 2/5 winning wager.

Gathering G

1. South Korea 3pts, 2. France 1pt, 3. Switzerland 1pt, 4. Togo 0pts

South Korea, semi finalists of four years back, could have been the casualties of an opening match resentful as unfancied Togo led the pack through Mohamed following 31 minutes. Lee Chun Soo evened out nine minutes into the second half and Ahn Jung Hwan, who broadly dumped Italy out of the 2002 World Cup and was then sacked by club bosses Perugia, struck the champ on 72 for the 11/10 Koreans.

France proceeded where they exited off four years prior by not scoring any objectives as they drew 0-0 with Switzerland. The two sides drew with one another amid qualifying so another stalemate at 9/4 was not a stun result.

Gathering H

1. Spain 3pts, 2. Saudi Arabia 1pt, 3. Tunisa 1pt, 4. Ukraine 0pts

Spain ignored their "underachiever" tag by pounding dim steed decision Ukraine 4-0 to send them best of the gathering after one match. Xabi Alonso opened the scoring following 13 minutes, David Villa got his first on 17 and changed over a punishment three minutes into the second half. Manchester United target Fernando Torres finished the defeat nine minutes previously the last shriek for the 4/5 Spaniards.

Saudi Arabia and Tunisia battled out an emotional 2-2 draw despite the fact that the outcome will help neither side. Ziad Jaziri terminated the Tunisians in front following 23 minutes however outcasts Saudi hit back through Al Khatani following 57 minutes and veteran Sami Al Jaber on 84. With a far-fetched triumph on the cards, Bolton protector Rahdi Jaidi roared in a header two minutes into stoppage time to seal a 11/5 draw.
