The Netherlands join Argentina in the club of favorites that easily
won their groups.
Great match by Japan to oust Denmark. The Asians' match against
Paraguay is wide open, there are no favorites.
Round of 16:
Also qualified: Brazil
In the fight for the remaining 3 spots: Portugal, Ivory Coast
(theoretical chances only), Chile, Spain, Switzerland, Honduras
Eliminated: South Africa, France, Greece, Nigeria, Slovenia, Algeria,
Australia, Serbia, Denmark, Cameroon, New Zealand, Italy, North Korea

These are already showing up, that didn't take long... I thought the
penalty was a bit soft, but Hasebe did seem to be pushing Agger so
there you have it.
Japan almost added a very nice fourth goal. Nice celebration at the
sidelines after the game.
