Saturday sees the final round of Group A games at the Confederations Cup, with the question being which of Iraq, South Africa or New Zealand will move on with Spain into the semi-finals. Arguably the Lions of Mesopotamia have the best show when coming up against the All Whites, however the Iraqis have been notoriously miserly in front of goal having failed to score so far in the competition.
Over in Japan the J-League is about a quarter of the way through as the Kashima Antlers lead the way over the Urawa Red Diamonds at the top of the table.
This weekend Kashima (5 straight league wins) welcome mid-table Jubilo Iwata to the unimaginatively named Kashima Soccer Stadium, with the visitors coming into match with patchy form of 5 wins, 5 defeats and 3 draws this season. Flipping the league on its head, at the foot of the table rock-bottom Oita Trinita, who are scraping their confidence off the floor having lost their last 10 consecutive league matches, travel to fourth spot Kawasaki Frontale.
Lastly for this weekend we turn to the big match in South Africa on Sunday, as heavyweights Italy meet Brazil meet in must-win match if the Azzurri aim to remain in the tournament. But it is questionable whether Italy have the stomach to fight for the win after statements including “we knew beforehand that this Confederations Cup is a test to prepare for the World Cup and that there would be experiments,” are spouted by Gigi Buffon.
By contrast Brazil has sparkled so far, and there is little to suggest that the Samba Boys wont make it three wins from three on Sunday night.
