And we are through the first half of the Round of 16 in the 2006 Shirt Cup Presented By F.C. Camena ™. The second round was mostly chalk, with three of the four matches going to the first-round winners (England was the lone group stage runner-up to advance). England soundly defeated the Old Enemy, Germany; Cote D’Ivoire handled the Portugese, the USA defeated Brazil (Sigh. We Can Only Dream.), and Togo continued their remarkable run by pounding Saudi Arabia.
Over the weekend, we’ll run the second half of the Round of 16, with a solid lineup of matches. Be sure to check in and vote:
