The 2005 Confederations Cup in Germany has just started with two matches.
In the first one, an unconcentrated Argentina side won 2-1 against a Tunisian side that dared too little. However, Argentina has started well, and if they concentrate they should be able to defeat both Germany and Australia. In spite of Germany winning at home, they looked very shaky, particularly in defence; a non-impressive Australia managed to make 3 goals against the hosts. Still, with some beautiful goals by Kuranyi, Ballack, Mertesacker and young Lucas Podolski (according to German TV, the new young pop-star of German football), Germany managed to get their expected victory.
In spite of many goals however, none of the teams were looking overly impressive. Actually, most goals were defence mistakes. Things will have to improve if any of the teams hope to win the tournament. At least it has started well for Argentina and Germany.
