Burden of expectation too great for Brazil

Round Two
Tuesday 27th June
Dortmund, Germany

The 2006 Fifa World Cup was blown wide open as Brazil were defeated by a single Luca Toni Goal in Dortmund last night. Emerson Marks reports. This was their earliest exist since Italia '90, where they lost in the second round to Argentina. The Brazilians had to play out the final thirty minutes without their talisman Ronaldinho, who was forced off with a calf strain. They missed a host of chances, particularly in the last fifteen minutes, when Buffon saved at point blank range from Adriano. Italy had taken the lead on 22 minutes, when Luca Toni arrived at the far post to head home Pirlo's right sided set piece. The result left experts to salivate at who was to claim this year's World Cup with the favourites knocked out.

So, 90minutesofBurridge, Blogger's favourite sporting blog - as voted by all Burridge Bloggers wants to know who they'll think will lift the World Cup come July 9th In Berlin.

Burridge blogger Emerson Marks, writing exclusively for 90minutesofBurridge has a strong feeling for Argentina to become the first South Americans to win in Europe since Brazil's triumph in Sweden in 1958.

The majority of us are racing towards 30, and many of you have long term girlfriends. But, I was still under the impression that you were all firing blanks on and off the pitch. But, finally we have a Dad to be at Burridge. Mr & Mrs Froud - coincidently the only married couple at the club - are expected the pattering of tiny feet. No, Lee Fielder isn't their new lodger, but they're expecting a baby. I'm sure you'll join me in congratulating them.

Editor's note: I would like to congratulate Steve on just the act itself, well done!

AFC Spotted Cow 1 - 0 Burridge AFC

Sunday 30th April

The ecombination of the last game of the season and internet restrictions at work has left me with a nasty case of writers block. But, in a nutshell: Bryn had another head injury (he ' always had problems with his head). Then Burridge continued to battle away gamely and produced another chances in the game to have taken something. Spotted Cow got the only goal of the game mid way through the second half.

PS Well done to Nick Sadler of the ressies who made the crucial save in the Hants Cup Final penalty shoot out, well done.

4-4-2: D.Hopkins, M.Sanderson, P.Dyke, K.Willsher, M.Sanderson, G.Baker (P.Andrews), R.Allan, S.Burnet, L.Fielder, B.Schwodler (J.Schwodler), R.Bryant
