    0-3 to Ukraine a few minutes into the second half. The Saudi keeper is having a shocker! I think Ukraine have a planned strategy to shoot from distance.

    Well, so far they're still doing better than their first game in 2002 where no German player was tackled in the first half.

    4-0, what a trimming. The Ukrainians were furious and the arabs took the rap

    I'm so sick of the announcers referring to Ukraine as the Ukraine. If you're going to do that then start saying the Spain, the Saudi Arabia, and the Tunisia

    ...and the Gambia!

    I think "the Ukraine" is like an elliptic hangover from the days when you'd say something like "the Soviet Republic of Ukraine".
