World Cup Group E: Denmark vs. Japan and Netherlands vs. Cameroon

Denmark vs. Japan is the match to watch this afternoon in Group E: Japan advances with a win or a tie, while Denmark needs to win. The Netherlands has already clinched a spot in the round of 16 and has all but clinched first place in the group because of its goal-differential edge over Japan and Denmark, so there isn't much at stake in its game against already-eliminated Cameroon.

Surprised to see a normal Dutch lineup.

Wondering if the Dutch will smoke Bong in this match.

Honda looks like he's good for another 200,000 miles.

Amazing strike by Honda.

Have the Japanese already been booked twice for 'time wasting'??


Through 20 minutes?

That's ridiculous refereeing.


Very nice free kick from Honda...

...and another from Endo! There's the free kicks!

And they certainly haven't wasted any time.


It's gone all pear shaped for the Danes...

Why can't Nigel de Jong be Italian? He may be my least favorite player on the planet...

@ReignKing: My understanding for the normal Dutch lineup is that they rested a bunch of regulars against Argentina in the group stage finale in '06, then lost in the round of 16 to Portugal. And in Euro 2008 they rested their guys in the group stage finale, then lost to Russia. Lesson learned, I guess.

Interesting to note that ESPN has chosen to put Japan - Denmark on the flagship, which has very little star power but serious implications to the tournament itself.

Samuel Eto'o and the flashy Dutch on ESPN2.

Sport over celebrity on ESPN! Who'd a thought?

ESPN really has done a fine job with this tournament, Lalas notwithstanding.

Dadryan, I hate "fyp" but that was nicely done.

And Honda drove that ball from miles out.

I'm thinking the US could make a nice run in this tournament...
