World Cup Day 6 Preview

Zentralstadion, Leipzig

Spain (5) vs Ukraine (45)

So, Luis Aragones has finally grown some balls and dropped the over-rated Raul Gonzalez. He will NOT start tonight and instead, Valencia's David Villa will start in his place alongside Fernando Torres. Luis Garcia of Liverpool will get a surprise start tonight playing 'in the hole' just behind the strikers. Barcelona's Xavi, Liverpool's Xabi Alonso and Villarreal's workhorse, Senna will form the 3 in midfield.

Drogballs' Prediction: Spain 1-0 Ukraine. Maybe by dropping Raul, Spain will begin to find their touch and freshness in the side.

Allianz Arena, Munich

Tunisia (21) vs Saudi Arabia (34)

Drogballs' Prediction: Tunisia 2-0 Saudi Arabia. Ah, come on. It's still Saudi Arabia after all right? ha ha ha.

Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund

Germany (19) vs Poland (29)

This will be a very hard-fought and tight game in my opinion. Poland will fight for their lives as if they lose this game tonight, it will be 'balek kampong' for them, or time to go home. Therefore I think they will not give up without a fight a give Germany a run for their money. But Germany will be boosted by the return of Michael 'big nose' Ballack and will look to be the first team to qualify for the second-round.

Drogballs' Prediction: Germany 2-1 Poland. As I said, it will be decided by a goal and I just think that Germany is abit too strong although they will let a goal slip past them.
