The World Cup Day 15

The US advances despite a 1-0 loss to Germany because Portugal knocked off Ghana 2-1. So I pick up Germany and get a miss because Portugal is eliminated. In Group H Algeria came back to tie Russia so they'll advance with Belgium. I miss on that one too.

The standings at the completion of the Group round.

Completed Groups
Group A: Brazil (7), Mexico (7), Croatia (3), Cameroon (0)
Group B: Netherlands (9), Chile (6)Spain (3), Australia (0)
Group C: Columbia (6)Greece (1), Ivory Coast (3), Japan (1)
Group D: Costa Rica (7)Uruguay (6), Italy (3), England (1)
Group E: France (7), Switzerland (6),  Ecuador (4), Honduras (0)
Group F: Argentina (9)Nigeria (4), Bosnia-Herzegovina (3), Iran (1)
Group G: Germany (7), United States (5)Portugal (4), Ghana (1)
Group H: Belgium (9), Algeria (4)Russia (2), South Korea (1)

So I managed 12-4. That's not too bad.

So, on to the round of 16 when the orangutans and chimpanzees will get their chance for vengeance. Here we go.
