    LOL when that third goal went in I said "what a goal by Zidan", my mate said "f*cking hell has he come out of retirement?"..... duuuuh wrong one! (H)

    Cameroon could be on the sorry end of a thrashing if Egypt keep playing like this... and they call themselves the Indomitable Lions? They've been more like stray cats that need putting down!! :)

    What a strike from Abd Rabu, 4-1 to Egypt, though in all honesty, Cameroon's defence has been terrible, they didn't close him down quickly enough.

    Tunisia draws 1:1 with Senegal. Nice match so far with a late goal scored by Sall from Senegal. Surely it's going to be more interesting game in second half.

    The match ended 2:2 with an awesome strike from the Tunisian guy. Much better second half with many chances for Senegal to score.

    Now I'm waiting for RSA vs Angola.(Y)

    3-2, Morocco pulled one back but we're into injury time, can they get another or can Guinea hold on?

    1-0 Ghana but I thought Pienaar was fouled.

    Ghana have a lot of work to do, that was poor. Namibia gave them hell admittedly, they scrapped like lions out there, but for a side of Ghana's quality they should have been no test.

    Asamoah Gyan was really bad, he ran a lot but he had some chances he should have buried. Agogo was lucky to have scored, but a goal is a goal. I thought Quincy did some good things but sometimes he tries to do too much and messes up the team and he really should have taken that chance when Athiel Mbaha was at 6's and 7's. Kingston's freekicks weren't very good at all, he put every last one on the backpost and too high for Gyan or Quincy to do anything with since neither are renowned headers of the ball. Maybe Agogo or Essien could have done something, maybe had they tried to play it back across goal something would have come of it. Essien was a bull in midfield, I can't remember a Namibia chance being created through his area of the field though Oliver Risser did a commendable job against him especially considering the gigantic task at hand. The few times they were tested Ghana's defense looked very suspect. Kingson can't be criticized though because he acted when called upon.

    I thought Namibia had two bright spots in Plaatjies and Brendell, both looked very lively and showed good pace and a great appetite for the match. Shame Brendell couldn't take one of his chances.

    I thought Benin played with a lot of heart, a lot of drive. Though Chrysostome (as much as I love defending tall, thin people such as myself) got away with a lot, he really could have been sent off in the first half-hour. Razak Omotoyossi though, a very good little player. He could become a folk hero in Benin if he keeps this up.

    Toure's injury sullied the match a bit for me, not just because I'm a Gooner but because he's a really good guy and you hate to see the nice guys get injured in this age of millionaire playboys. I smiled when he hugged Yaya after Yaya scored, he was so excited for him.

    CIV's only glaring weakness is Barry, unfortunately for them he's the goalkeeper, the most vulnerable position on the pitch. If Kolo is going to miss the knockout stage they could be on shaky ground.

    Nigeria, that's just inexcusable. Berti Vogts is an awful manager. How can you NEED a goal and not only remove Martins, a genuine goal threat, but later take off Odemwingie AND leave Kanu, a player with a penchant for scoring as a sub, on the bench? He needs to be fired tomorrow morning. A big team like Nigeria shouldn't be out this early.

    That said Mali earned the draw and you could argue did enough for a win, but they're done, the group belongs to the Elephants.

    Amazing Angola (Y)

    Manucho is going to be a star dude, amazing guy. And Flavio is surely going to move to a bigger club, great striker.

    For a team who was losing against nations that no one knows before the CAN started and even without Mantorras (who was surely their best player, 2/3 years ago), Angola looks fine.

    Holy crap, that move by that Angolan dude! And I expected no more from RSA to be honest.
