World Cup Report, 14th June 2006, with Mickey McBias...

What a difference a day makes. Three great games today. Firstly, I'll tell you about Tunisia v The Saudis, with the former being the favourites, who were 1-0 up for a while, then the Saudis fought back to lead 2-1, and it looked like they'd take it. But one thing this World Cup has shown within the first week alone, is that it's often a late, late show. Late goals a plenty in recent days, and this proved to be the case again, as 2 minutes into stoppage time,Tunisia grabbed an equaliser, and that's how it finished, 2-2. That in turn threw Ukraine a lifeline, who, earlier in the day, were comprehensively thumped 4-0 by Spain. The Spaniards were good, and Ukraine were awful - very surprising. Spain have become known as the 'nearly' team of so many World Cups, but today shows, perhaps, they may mean business in 2006. It's about time. Those games finished off the first games in every group, and tonight began the second set of matches, as the hosts Germany took on Poland, who had a such a poor showing last time out, against Ecuador. This was enthralling, it really was. Germany were on top for the most part, and it looked as if Poland were going to scrape a point in this, what I thought was the best 0-0 match I've seen for many, many a year, when - wait - it's the late late show again, as the hosts snatched a sensational 91st minute winner. They deserved it, truth be told. I feel very sorry for the Poles, who, barring some sort of miracle, look to be heading home early. But they do have themselves to blame in a way, for their performance just days before - that did the real damage. So, Germany are all but through to the second stage after the late 1-0 win over Poland, barring some strange results and mathematical miracles over the next few days.
I expect England to secure their 2nd round place tomorrow too.
And even after a whole week, Scotland are still unbeaten - not even a goal conceded yet.
