World Cup Day 19: Second Round.

Brazil 3 Ghana 0. A record for Ronaldo with his 15th World Cup goal. Ghana played really well, but, in the end the loss of Michael Essien due to suspension could have made the difference. Ghana should be proud.

Spain 1 France 3. France finally show up and Spain's record of futility continues. The French could now be the dark horse of the competition. I think they could win it all.

So, at the end of the second round the traditional powers come to the fore. Out the six former winners in the competition all six make it to the Quater Finals. The only one no there is Uruguay who did not qualify.

My ranking of the the teams knocked out is:-

9. Switzerland
10. Mexico
11. Holland
12. Ecuador
13. Australia
14. Spain
15. Sweden
16. Ghana
