Canada blows a chance for the lead less than 10 minutes in on a penalty kick.

Canada very unlucky to go in at half time a goal down. This is a game where they will get severly punished for missing chances.

Disappointing result. Canada played the game they said they were going to play. Things just not quite going their way and Belgium's edge in experience showed in the second half. Maybe Canada never scores a World Cup goal.

Belgium: name on the trophy? Teams that play that badly and win...

Spain and France both look ominous.

There was like an 8-0 game yesterday, which is like 100-0 in real football.

In the old analogue days of 3 channels and barely any live coverage, if your team was playing away from home on a Saturday, the destination television was the Teleprinter. Basically the telex machine printing up the football scores as they were phoned into the studio.

Format was simple. Division, home team, score, away team, score.

So D1 ASTON VILLA 0 BIRMINGHAM CITY 3

If a team scored more than six, the Teleprinter delivered the ultimate humiliation. It repeated the score in words.

That does not happen much at the World Cup. Costa Rica, it's fair to say, were total pants.

Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey becomes only the third goalkeeper in World Cup history to receive a red card, and Iran go on to stun the world by scoring two late goals deep into added time.

The big problem for Wales (and also for Scotland, N Ireland and Ireland) is that most of their squad are bit part players for English teams, and just don't get the minutes at club level. It's always been my contention that Scotland should never pick players who aren't playing regular top flight football (maybe some exceptions for the best EFL Championship teams), but Wales realistically don't have that option.

And later tonight, ABE becomes USA, and for one night only, I am a real American.

A result picked completely at random, of course, LOL

With teams playing their second matches today, we start to get an idea of who will qualify for the next round.

Senegal defeated hosts Qatar 3-1, which eliminates Qatar. Netherlands drew 1-1 with Senegal, which all but guarantees them a place in the next round. Senegal must beat Ecuador in their last game, any other result and Ecuador will qualify.

USA with all the best chances in the first half and really should be a goal ahead. England playing like they don't need to play at 100% to win the game, and I think they will pay for that if they don't sharpen up in the second half.

Here's hoping that USA can get their shooting cleats on at half-time.

So, 0-0. The USA keep up their unbeaten record again England in World Cup games and wars.

After two games, the USA must beat Iran to qualify for the next round. England must avoid defeat to Wales to make the next round, if Wales win, they are through.

The existence of Canada suggests the latter is not true.
