Brazil is strong favorite to top Group G, while North Korea could well go home without a point. But the Koreans will be neat and tidy and defend 4-6-0 if they have to, which will hopefully push the Brazilians to be at their most exciting and inventive. Of the 'big' teams to have played so far, only Germany has turned on those of us looking to be entertained, so it's about time we got a game worth a DVD. Or at least a Youtube reel.
The match kicks off at 2.30 p.m. ET, so I'll be online from 2.15 p.m. with team news, vuvuzela complaints, live analysis, witty asides (alright, asides) and your emails -- get them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
