    A shocking 2-0 loss by Germany to South Korea (SK). Sure, Germany lost to Mexico and needed a late goal to win over Sweden, but they were still expected to win over SK.

    As per the stats, they clearly dominated the game, but just couldn't finish. So the dreaded "World Cup (WC) Champion Curse" continues, for 12 years, 4 World Cups and 3 champions now exiting the first round after winning the previous WC.

    Saw this game, and despite the close scoreline, it was clear that France was the better team. They threatened more, seemed to have more ball possession and had more attempts while Argentina struggled to do the same

    And just like Messi, Ronaldo gets to go home. This is probably the last World Cup for both players, and neither have been able to budge Pele and Maradona as being the Best Football Players of all time ...

    Hoops-Mad Pinoys Finally Catch Case of World Cup Fever

    Cecil Morella and Ayee Macaraig, Agence France-Presse
    Posted at Jul 10 2018 01:28 PM

    MANILA -- Shirts are selling briskly, crowds pack sports bars to watch matches and football is front-page news. Whisper it quietly, but basketball-crazy Philippines has finally been afflicted by World Cup fever.

    For decades, the nation of more than 100 million was on a very short list of global locations that had failed to fall for the beautiful game.

    That is beginning to change as football's narrow, but passionate, Filipino following grows fuelled by success of the national team whose new coach is former England great Terry Butcher -- a World Cup semi-finalist with the Three Lions in 1990.

    "Definitely, we do have... World Cup fever," television sportscaster Bob Guerrero told AFP outside a Manila bar where he was watching France knock Argentina out of the global tournament.

    "We're hoping that it's going to be a snowball effect and football will really start to grow here in the Philippines," said Guerrero, who works for top TV network ABS-CBN which is airing World Cup matches live.

    Grow it may, but at the moment there are only an estimated 1.5 million football-playing Filipinos compared to figures claiming that some 40 million regularly flock to the basketball courts that populate every barangay across the archipelago.
