The Fifa World Cup 2006 has just started and it meant an early morning for us down in New Zealand. I was up at 3am to watch the opening ceremony, the highlight of which was seeing the all-time greats all together in one place.
Germany and Costa Rica have just started playing the opening game and six minutes into the game, Philipp Lahm from Germany scored a cracker to open the scoring!
Costa Rica have just scored the equalizer. Germany were calling for an offside, but replays show that Paulo Wanchope was onside before making the break and scoring the goal.
Germany have just taken the lead back with another great goal, this time from Miroslav Klose who finished off a flat, square cross in front of the goal.
This is turning into one of the classics – back to watching the game now!
