Final Friendly Results

Shevchenko returned to the Ukraine side yesterday to lead the Ukraine to a healthy 3-0 victory against Luxembourg. He scored, of course and I was relieve. That Sheva to be top goalscorer bet was starting to look a little dodgy.

On Wednesday, 'lucky' Djibril Cisse broke his damn leg again, meaning he's out of the World Cup Finals. France did manage to beat China 3-1, but it wasn't a particularly convincing display; judging by the repeat I saw on EuroSport last night.

One of the Guardian's team of bloggers agrees with me and
predicts French disaster at the Finals. He might just have a point.

Lichenstein 1 Australia 3 : Well, the Aussies won, but it wasn't pretty.

Spain: 2 Croatia: 1 - I was expecting Spain to lose this, but a late Torres goal was enough. The Spanish, will, of course, self-destruct in the Finals proper though. It's the law, or an old charter, or something.
