World Cup Day 13 - No surprises

No great surprises with the results from last night (Wednesday) with the sides expected to qualify doing so.

In Group C , Portugal defeated Mexico 2-1 to confirm their position at the top of the group whilst Angola and Iran played out a draw to end any faint hopes that the Africans had of snatching second place.

Over in Group D, Argentina and Holland played out a fairly uninspiring goalless draw. Both sides displaying their obvious technical quality but it wasn't a game blessed with an endless number of chances. It was a surprise that Holland appeared content with a point rather than taking a risk in going for the win bearing in mind they had already qualified for the next stage. They now face Portugal in the last sixteen whilst Argentina will play Mexico. Rounding out this group, Serbia & Montenegro capped a miserable tournament in which their vaunted back line evaporated as they saw a 2-0 lead overturned by Ivory Coast who earned a much deserved three points with a 3-2 victory.
