A day of great surprises in the 2005 Confederations Cup. After Argentina's and Germany's expected victories, Greece and Brazil were also expected to follow suit. However, the Greeks continued with their poor showing as European Champions, and lost to a motivated and organised Japanese side. In the other match, although less surprising, The Mariachi's showed that they can tame the Brazilian samba. Mexico won 1-0, and in spite of good Brazilian chances, Mexico also had the chance of of winning with a larger margin. The tournament is thus getting more exciting, but I still expect that it will end up with a Latin American winner.
