Portugal v North Korea (Cape Town) 12.30pm
I expect this to be a Ronaldo shotfest, the twinkle-toed moaner taking advantage of lax defending to shoot from all distances and angles. The odd thing is my Dad kept mentioning some match in 1966. No idea what he’s talking about.
Prediction: Portugal WIN
Chile v Switzerland (Nelson Mandela Bay/Port Elizabeth) 3pm
The South Americans are poised to head this group by late afternoon. The Swiss may well have over exceeded expectations already after beating Spain. At least that’s what their wily manager would have us believe.
Prediction: Chile WIN
Spain v Honduras (Johannesburg) 7.30pm
Prediction: Spain WIN
Who would have thought it? The favourites succumbing to the Swiss. It can’t happen again, can it? No.
