Sadhu soccer

Photo of the day (via Andrew Sullivan), and a lot more interesting than either of the two matches today.

Oh yeah, Italy won 3-0 over Ukraine and Germany beat Argentina on penalty kicks. Snooze. Tomorrow is the day....

By the way, Pelé is betting on France.


I should say that the match between Italy and the Ukraine did have one nice feature: that beautiful move at the side of the box that the great Andriy Shevchenko pulled on two Italian defenders in about the 90th minute. Probably the nicest piece of offensive ball-handling we've seen yet in this World Cup.
