Two fantastic games today, Argentina beating South Korea 4-1.  At 2-1 it looked like the Koreans were about to come back into the game but La Albiceleste held them at bay and Higuain scored two more goals to get his hat-trick.
Great to see Diego Maradona's passion, although he has to work hard to remedy his side's defensive shortcomings.

 Then a thriller between Greece and Nigeria which ended 2-1 to the Greeks, their first ever win in the World Cup.  A thrilling game by 2 teams that, while not considered football powerhouses,  illustrated the beauty of the World Cup.  The sending off of Nigeria's Sani Kaita in the 33rd minute for his irresponsible and unsportsmanlike conduct was a hammer blow from which the Nigerians never recovered.

To all of those talking about the "most boring" World Cup ever, it's just starting to warm up Africa's winter.
