WC 2010 Day 6 : Video Highlights

Chile 1 Honduras 0
Playing El Loco Bielsa’s highly anticipated formation, Chile looked arguably the smoothest team of World Cup 2010 so far, exchanging passes easily and generally looking like a team that knew their plan of attack. Honduras, on the other hand, struggled to get past the halfway line, and it’s a minor miracle they didn’t concede more. Chile’s goal came in the 34th minute through a mixture of good football and luck.

Spain 0 Switzerland 1
Spain had all the possession, but Switzerland had all the goals. Well, just the one goal, from Gelson Fernandes. And it wasn't pretty. But it was one more than Spain managed. Incredible stuff and the biggest upset in this tournament, so far.

Uruguay 3 South Africa 0
This wasn’t the same Uruguay team that played for a dull draw against France. Instead, this was a Uruguay team interested in scoring goals. South Africa had a couple of moments too. From the seconds, Forlan scored a cracker on 24th minute, the stage was set for Forlan and Uruguay to shine. Forlan clearly was the key man who runs the show for Uruguay. When he converted a nicely taken penalty on 76th minute the contest was over beyond any doubt. The misery wasn’t over for the host, in fifth minute of added time, Luis Suarez crossed for Álvaro Pereira to knock home a third. So, 3-0 to Uruguay, who suddenly look very strong with four points from two games in Group A, and South Africa are in imminent danger of being the first host nation to fail to advance beyond the group stage.
