The Confederations cup is well under way with completion of the first round of games. Iraq and South Africa was a bit sloppy but featured the excitment of being the first game of the prelude tournament to the World Cup next year. Spain and NZ was like watching a pro team play a HS team. Brazil v. Egypt was exciting though it seems that the Egyptians think they ‘re allowed to have 2 goal keepers. And Italy v. US was tough – US played valiantly down 1 man against the reigning World Champions. Not bad.
So with the first round completed, I’d love to hear your thoughts, reactions, stories around the games, stories of any marketing efforts you’ve noticed around the games, etc.
