Pop World Cup 2010: Group F – Paraguay 0 New Zealand 0

FT/24 comments • 499 views

Steve M’s New Zealand are through to the next round and coasting. Paraguay, managed by Talia, are very close to qualification, needing just a point to see them through. Is this a good time to play NZ? Or will Paraguay find their squad – according to the manager a very thin squad indeed – succumbing to the pressure?

Pop World Cup 2010: Group F – Slovakia 3 Italy 0

FT/18 comments • 408 views

There is controversy afoot – controversy about the suspect timekeeping in key matches, controversy about the competence of some of the less prominent PWC administrators. It’s a fractious time. One one side of this game, Julio’s Slovakia: they have fought bravely but this is a farewell to the tournament, their tickets home have already been booked. Marna and her Italy team have a slim chance of progressing but need a stonking big win AND need Paraguay to lose in the other final group game. For reasons not fully understood by the World Pop FA, both managers have refused to speak to the press.

Pop World Cup 2010: Group F – Italy 1 New Zealand 3

New Zealand enter this game with their tails up, this group’s only holder of three points after round one. If the Italians play as they did in the last game, they might chew those Kiwi tails right off.

Pop World Cup 2010: Group F – Slovakia 0 Paraguay 3

FT/9 comments • 456 views

This match could be transformative for one of these teams. Slovakia emerged from their first game with nothing, after hoping to win, while Paraguay were utterly befuddled by Italy’s revolutionary tactics in a 0-0 draw which attracted massive press coverage. The question really is who will deal best with the pressure?

The second group F game sees New Zealand and Slovakia go head to head – two Pop World Cup unknowns making their debut on the biggest stage. Both have gone for experienced managers, Steve Mannion in the Kiwis’ dugout while Julio de Souza slips on his sheepskin coat for the Slovaks.

This match will end at midnight on March 4th – for now, get voting.

Group F’s opener sees Paraguay, managed by Talia, take on Marna’s Italy side. Both these teams came bottom of their groups at the last Pop World Cup – while it’s probably fair to say pop minnows Paraguay will be looking to enjoy the experience, surely Italy won’t be about to repeat their 2006 collapse?
