So, apparently there’s another game on for the All Whites tonight. Kick-off at the user friendly hour of 2am. Predictions anyone?

Guess I have to stay up for this one. Go the All Whites!

    Now by nature I’m the pessimistic type. But I don’t want to jinx the team. So I’m going to dig deep for my inner optimist. All Whites to win, 2 – 1.

  2. WOOF 2

    I hope they win, woo woo wooooooooo! 🙂

    My heart is hoping for 2-1 All Whites. I think it is unrealistic not to expect Paraguay to score at least one goal given their talent. Hopefully we can get a couple more good crosses in because I don’t think we will dazzle them with fancy footwork.

    My head says we should lose by at least 3-0. Paraguay are a bloody good side. I saw a bit of their game against Slovakia. Paraguay looked very scary. Apparently Slovakia didn’t get a single shot on goal all game whereas Paraguay looked very slick on attack.

    I did tell my wife we were going to get wasted by Italy for similar reasons, so hopefully my head is wrong again.

    I hear that two are sick including Nilsen. Hope not!
    Go the Whites! (Hey! That sounds racist. Sorry.)

    ¡Venga Paraguay! Gana Uruguay. I want to see a match-up between the ‘guays’.

    a Draw 1-1

  7. I dreamed a dream 7

    In this Beautiful Game, upsets can happen between top-ranked and lowly sides (unlike Rugby). NZ’s got a chance of an upset.

  8. Sadly have about a 30% chance. But five years ago it would have been 3% – so all good. Win/lose or draw they have done us all proud. Kia Kaha!

    The heart says 1 nil All Whites. The head (and $5 at the TAB) says we hold out till the 60 minute mark and then the effects of the Italy game kick in and we go down 2 zip. I’d happily lose the fiver for a place in the last sixteen, though, so GO THE ALL WHITES!

    I think the result depends on The PM’s attendance 😉
    However a prediction … 3.0 to Paraguay
    I hope I am wrong

  11. The head says Paraguay by two, but the heart says that the All Whites will win by one, so I’m listening to the heart! I’m off home soon to get some sleep before the game, because I know that whaever the result, sleep won’t come afterwards!

    There’s an apolitical preview of the game at the link below, and I trust that the mods will let it stand, in the spirit of goodwill which envelops the nation just now 😉

    I have predicted losses for the all whites in the last two games so will not jinx it and will predict another loss 1 nil to Paraguay.

    All Whites 1 Mallard 0

  14. outofbed 14

    New Zealand have scored two goals from just three shots on target in the 2010 World Cup

  15. Name 15

    Prediction? Twenty-two men will spend ninety minutes kicking a ball around a park. One or two might kick it into a net, or maybe knock it there with his head. I’ll be in bed asleep.

    captcha ‘potentially’.

    2 to 1, win by the allwhites. Yay!

    A dour first half and nil all. All Whites under pressure but holding their own – a very different feel from the pummelings of 1982!

    • The Voice of Reason 17.1

      Nil all not good enough now that the Slovaks have scored against Italy. NZ must get at least one goal now.

      • r0b 17.1.1

        Didn’t happen.

        Still – a better second half. And undefeated in the group is just amazing!

        Goodnight…

        • The Voice of Reason 17.1.1.1

          A lot to be proud of there. Well done, guys. And we finish ahead of Italy, who are last in the group. Who’d have picked that, eh?

  18. WOOF 18

    Congratuwations! 🙂

    Well done to the All Whites they have been outstanding and have yet to lose a game! 🙂
