Hello, players, a new game begins soon. The deadline is over, no more changes.
The kick-off is in 13 hours. Are you already excited?

Let me introduce the players of my two groups, as well as the line-ups you are all waiting for.

(No visual yet, I still have technical problems with it)

One more note – I will be able to send the daily results on weekdays only around 5-6-7pm CEST, next week probably around 5-6pm, since the basho will be over until then.
At weekends of course I will have more time so the results will be posted earlier.

And we are already over the first day. Last winter at this time we were still preparing for watching the matches. Did you today? I had the tv-set turned on and saw the matches a little, but I had to work, so I couldn’t pay much attention.

Well, the results were:

New Zealand 1 Norway 0
Australia 1 Ireland 0

Nothing much to see yet, but at least there are already visuals.
Teams playing tomorrow are in bold.

Group H Round 1 - Day 1 :

  Kumanomusuko                 Polimasa  
                       

Mr Froggy already in very delicate position with Ireland's loss in line 2 . This was expected though. A Germany loss is the only way to remain alive. Unlikely, but if this happens, line 5 is all in favor of our amphibian friend.

(Or a very big upset win by Vietnam!)

But yes, I agree, a USA win is pretty much nailed on - like Leicester City having no chance of winning the English Premier League in 2016!

quick side note - if you're watching girls footie and you got REALLY bored (like me), why not improve your Jpanese skills. Use a very easy way and do it like Jpn kids do - check out the Youtube channel: Suisui Ondoku

native speaker is reading out texts (different level starting at primary one) and you can listen and read at the same time.
