We will have a first time World Cup champion this year. Neither Spain nor the Netherlands have hoisted the trophy in their nations’ history, but one of them will change that Sunday. We will also see a European team win the World Cup outside of Europe for the first time.

This is arguably the most lopsided matchup in the quarterfinals. Spain comes in as European Champion and has looked strong after the initial shocker against Switzerland. They adjusted in their second match against a defensive oriented side in Portugal.
Germany and Argentina will face off in a rematch of the 2006 quarterfinals. And there is still some bad blood between the teams. Four years ago in Germany, the match was tied 1-1 after 90 minutes and went into extra time and penalties.
Uruguay Vs Ghana Preview & Free Picks. Ghana is looking to become the first African team to ever qualify for a World Cup semifinal when it plays Uruguay Friday. The Uruguayans are looking to reach the semis for the first time in forty years.
It’s a shame these teams have to meet in the quarterfinals. This really should be the final, with two of the world’s top teams facing off against each other. The Dutch are unbeaten in 23 matches, and Brazil brings a ten-game undefeated streak to the pitch.
Eight teams are left in the 2010 World Cup, and the South American nations have been dominating so far. While (usual) European powerhouses France and Italy made their exits in the group stage, four South American teams are still in the competition: Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay.
We saw a shade of Wembley at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein, South Africa Sunday morning. Frank Lampard scored what looked like a goal to tie the match between England and Germany at two after Germany had jumped out to an early 2-0 lead.
Everything at the World Cup up to this point has just been just been a warmup – an appetizer for the great meal we are about to enjoy. Round robin play is now over, and the elimination rounds in the World Cup are about to get underway. Every game will have a winner, and every loser will be going home. Things are about to get really, really good.
South Korea gave Uruguay a tough fight, but the South Americans prevailed in the end. Luis Suarez continued his great run at the World Cup and scored twice to give Uruguay the win. He scored an amazing goal in the 80th minute to put the Uruguayan side up 2-1. Uruguay’s strong defense gave up its first goal, but prevented any further damage.
