france 1 mexico 0
both sides only had 3 scoring chances each. the french scored on 1 of theirs and blew the other 2.
mexico's 3 chances were taken away by an offside call when there was no offside, and 2 non-calls outside the penalty area. neither side looked like world cup champs, but henry and saha didn't play, so i'm keeping my hopes up. zidane is washed up. i hope they play the kid from marseille instead, but that is unlikely.
on the other hand, spain tied russia 0-0 but looked like the best team so far. if they didn't have a history of choking, i'd call spain the favorites. reyes and torres look deadly.
