If you’re finding it difficult to keep up with every game this World Cup, I’ve found a solution! I was recently alerted to a product called Replay Video Capture developed by Applian Technologies. Its a nifty software that’s useful for recording any video on the internet. I was particularly interested since most of us have day jobs, and will probably miss a few matches this World Cup. That would be tragic, considering what a thriller this tournament has been so far. This software means we can record games while we ‘re at work, asleep or otherwise indisposed…and watch them later.

This World Cup has been one of the best in recent times. The flurry of goals – and good ones too – the comebacks, inspirational play, its all been exhilarating . I had the good fortune of enjoying 13 games at the last World Cup held here in South Africa, including both semi finals and the final at Soccer City. This time around, I wasn’t so lucky to get tickets. But how I wish I was in Copacabana to soak in the World Cup atmosphere. But I am not. Instead I am relegated to watching on a HD TV and the world wide web for added entertainment. If you’re also watching from home, here are some handy blogs & sites that will make your World Cup experience a whole lot better:

A disastrous performance from the reigning World and European Champions and a stunning show from the South Americans. The big talking point before the game was that Xavi and Pique were dropped in favour of Pedro and Javi Martinez. A Spain without Xavi? Let me put this into perspective: Xavi has played a full 90 minutes in all of Spains tournament winning matches in 2008, 2010 & 2012. I could not understand this move from Del Bosque. From the defeat to the Netherlands, Xavi was the least of his problems.

Australia 2-3 The Netherlands
Robben (20′) Cahill (21′) Jedinak (51′) Van Persie (58′) Memphis (68′)
If you told me yesterday that the Netherlands will edge past Australia 2-3 I would have said you’re mad. After the Dutch mauled World Champions Spain. I’d expected an utter demolition of the Socceroos. But the men from down under held their own, put on a fantastic spectacle and to be honest, played 10 times better than Spain did against the Dutch. And what a thrilling game this was.

Germany 4-0 Portugal
Muller (12′ 45+1′ 78′) Hummels (32′)
When fixtures were announced, fans found themselves salivating at the thought of this game. a team that boasts the World Player of the Year and a side that’s touted as the next generation of superstars – it promised to be a cracker and it did not disappoint. Joachim Low’s side did well in 2010 for a young squad, four years on the key players have matured. And what away to announce their arrival at this tournament.
