Burden of expectation too great for Brazil
Tuesday 27th June
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.
