Here was the biggest surprise - the elimination of Spain by South Korea. In the inaugural game the Koreans were near to make the same surprise against Croatia, loosing in the final minutes. In the other games Croatia, with the big crowd making them flying, had not any problems. Cuba and Kuwait were not able to play like equals against the other 4. Cuba had some good performance against Korea.

The most competitive Group. Germany had problems in the begginig against Russia and Tunisia, but these teams could not progress. After loosing the Tunisia game, Macedonia had a good run, only loosing to Germany, after falling in the second half. Russia had a desastrous performance and there were a possibility to loose the game against Argelia. Tunisia played well, but almost allways was in the wrong side of the score. Algeria had only one good game against Russia.

Logical 1st place for Denmark. They have problems only in the game with Serbia, when they made a great come back in the second half after loosing with 8 goals mid in the first half. Surprise 2nd place for Serbia. Astonigshly they loosed against Brazil, but this score was not transferred to the 2nd Round. Egypt could not manage to match the European teams. Brazil made their biggest win, but the defeat against Egypt annulled it.
