The El Tri put up a great fight and represented CONCACough-Cough well. But, the Argentines are the team to beat and they keep scoring goals that make me tingle in places I haven’t for years.

Best Game: Argentina v. Mexico. The game had it all — great goals, good defending, near misses, and (gasp!) sound officiating.

Best ESPN Factoid: none.

Best face paint: The Hassel-Hat!

The Final Whistle:

“The most patronised and, possibly disliked, side in the World Cup were sent packing.”
Andy Bull for the Guardian

Meanwhile, the always likable and never patronized English . . .

Overall Hasselhoff Rating for the Day: (out of 5)

A great day of foot-ball! Even Gertrude smiled!
