Onwards, ever onwards the Pop World Cup marches, with barely time to draw breath! Both Rob H’s Denmark and Dasal’s Japan need a win here, but even that won’t be enough if the other result goes against them. All they can do is play for the full 90 minutes and see what happens…

DENMARK: White Pony – “Falling” The Manager Says “Japan have shown promise so far but have failed to win so will be looking to win, but could try something unexpected. We half expect them to kamikaze on this final track, but we’re taking no chances and will assassinate them with our tune and skill before they even get a touch.”
JAPAN: Polysics – “Electric Surfin’ Go-Go” The Manager Says: “Japan’s position in the group has meant that it is time for the mighty empire to unleash it’s secret weapon. time to power up the giant attack robots. Nothing can stop us. FOR THE EMPIRE!”

Commentary Box Analysis Slightly hamstrung by the very late arrival of the Japanese team bus here, they’re pulling into the stadium with only minutes to spare before kick off, so we’ve not had a chance to run the rule over their team though from the way they’re twitching I suspect the physio’s got the monkey glands in. The Danish side’s bright pop-rap could give them some difficulties, but not unlike Chris Kamara last week, we’re a bit in the dark here…
Results! France 1 South Africa 1, Mexico 2 Uruguay 2! Two amazingly tight ties here, both matches ending almost exactly equal, Uruguay just couldn’t score that crucial winner that would have seen them advance, so South Africa go through as group winners with France sneaking through on goal difference. SA/FRA “Great flowing play from both sides. I really enjoyed this match!” “There’s much to enjoy from both sides.” “Both teams have copied the tactics of great Italian teams of yesteryear and have come out with something irresistable” “Of all the games so far this one has to be one of the best I’ve heard” MEX/URU “Following their manager’s communication breakdown Mexico seem dazed and confused. There’s clearly not a whole lotta love for their creaking performance” “Vastly prefer Mexico myself, what with so many quick runs and strums” “You are all wrong, this is actually the best Mexican track so far”
Coming Next The Dutch are already through, will they give Cameroon the easy ride they hope for? A victory will see them through, anything less and they’ll be sweating…
