We had the biggest upset of the World Cup so far today with Spain losing their match against Switzerland 1-0. Spain is the favorite to win this World Cup and there was a lot expected from them in today's match. They were very good in midfield, passed the ball well and completely dominated possession, but Switzerland's defense was excellent - they showed great determination and were very organized. When Spain brought Torres on in attack they looked dangerous, so I would expect him to start the next match. I also expected them to have shaken off the cobwebs and gone through to the next round, but this has obviously made it more difficult for them. It will be interesting to see how they handle the pressure and the potential backlash of a passionate nation that had anticipated so much.
Today saw another big upset with Serbia beating Germany 1-0. Serbia is a very good side and Germany struggled after Miroslav Klose got a red card. After Germany beat Australia 4-0 last week, everyone got very excited and said Germany will go all the way through to the final. But it's very important not to get carried away with ourselves here and favor the teams that did well early on. Spain lost to Switzerland, and Germany lost today – that doesn't mean that we won't see them in the next round, only that they will have to fight harder in their next set of matches to go through.
