I'm sure it's the American in me, but I thought Paraguay/Japan was a good game. I really do prefer watching two pretty good but not great teams futilely having at each other over watching a great team murder a weak team with a series of beautiful goals.
Which is also why I'm glad that Spain beat Portugal. The seven that the Portuguese put past North Korea were the only ones they scored in the cup. This is a squad that was unable to do anything against anyone besides the weak, and that just offends my sensibilities; and I appreciate the Spanish for being both willing to attack good teams and be able to beat them; though they did take a couple of unbecoming dives today, which I suppose is better than the brawls or riots that are known to break out when next-door rivals play each other.
No games until Friday now. How odd.
