Pop World Cup 2010: Group B – Greece 0 Argentina 4

FT/34 comments • 785 views

Both of these sides have a single point to show for their first two games, and both are staring an early exit from the competition square in the face. Either side could still qualify but to do so they will need a handsome victory and even then will  require a sizeable win in the Nigeria -  Korea Republic match. It’s one for the statisticians, for sure. Will it be one for the neutrals?

Wait… the Greek manager appears to have a piece of paper in his hands…

A draw, Gary. It’s the hardest result to play for in Association Pop – who can judge how to gain somewhere between 42 and 58% of the votes in a game? No-one, that’s who. It’s a result which would probably please both managers here, because it would see both teams through to the next round. A loss here, though, and Greece or Argentina might take advantage…

Pop World Cup 2010: Group B – Greece 1 Nigeria 2

FT/27 comments • 820 views

More action now from the group of draws, Group B. Greece ranked as outsiders ahead of the tournament, while Nigeria were hotly tipped in some quarters to go somewhere near All The Way. But the table doesn’t lie and they go into this game all square. Defeat may leave either team contemplating an early exit and no-one wants to go home too soon to their national equivalent of Del Amitri.

Pop World Cup 2010: Group B – Argentina 0 Korea Republic 1

FT/31 comments • 838 views

The first round of games in Group B finished all square – draws all round. It’s a position to conjure with, as fancied outfits try to recover from the disappointments of points dropped, while outsiders find their confidence boosted by points unexpectedly gained. Anything could happen from here, but failure at this stage could be fatal for any of the four teams.

Pop World Cup 2010: Group B – Argentina 2 Nigeria 2

FT//27 comments • 1,117 views

Today’s game sees Argentina, managed by Jonathan Bogart, take on Nigeria, managed by Matt DC. Argentina crashed out of the 2006 competition in the first round, and they’ve hired a manager with an impressive knowledge of pop tactics. Nigeria are tipped by some to become the first African winners of the Pop World Cup. This could be Group B’s most crucial match.

As ever, play the tracks and vote. This one ends at midnight on the 18th.

Pop World Cup 2010: Group B – Greece 1 South Korea 1

FT//24 comments • 1,048 views

Our first Group B clash is between Greece, managed by Johan of Birdseed’s Tunedown, and South Korea, managed by Chris of Gutteral. Greece made it to the quarter-finals of Europop 2008, South Korea however couldn’t make it out of their group at the last Pop World Cup. With tough matches to come for both sides they’ll be looking for a strong start.

As ever, anyone can vote in the poll below the cut – this one will end at midnight on Wednesday 17th.
