Yesterday, reigning World Cup champions Italy, were unceremoniously dumped out of this year's competition. Defeated 3-2 by Slovakia, in what must be considered the match of the tournament thus far. There were tears and everything.

Four years ago Jarno Trulli was celebrating Italy's triumph in the 2006 World Cup.

I guess the Italian contingent of the F1 paddock will be less than cheerful in Valencia today. C'mon, even England managed to make the final 16, although admittedly under the watchful eye of our, erm, Italian manager.

A time for unity

Are you ready for your next instalment of World Cup Typography yet? Good, because the timely Font Feed have even more brilliant insight to offer. This time looking at the work of Brazilian designer, Yomar Augusto.

Augusto designed the Unity set for Adidas, makers of the controversial Jabulani ball. In fact the revised ball, which caused so many negative headlines early on in the tournament, served as inspiration for the Unity typeface. The rounded-triangle shaped panels that make up the ball, forming an essential part of each elements design.

Next time you see a player on the pitch, pay special attention to the number on his shirt and shorts, as well as the writing on the Jabulani. All of those characters come from the Unity typeface, with the numerals 6, 8, and 9 taking their cue directly from the ball players are kicking about the field. Typography, eh?

About those matches

We have four more games to look forward to today, and they shape up as follows:

  • North Korea v Ivory Coast - 15:00 (GMT+1)
  • Portugal v Brazil - 15:00 (GMT+1)
  • Chile v Spain - 19:30 (GMT+1)
  • Switzerland v Honduras - 19:30 (GMT+1)

I'm hoping Spain do well out of those, if only because a grumpy Spaniard driving for a grumpy Italian team, might be just too much to bear during the course of the weekend.

Go Fernando Spain!

    the big question is... how long will it be before we run out of f1 related football photographs?

    I did not cry :-) But it was a good game, it had goals, some great acting from the Italians, late drama and win for underdogs. other than all that acting diving (that belongs to Olympics I would say :-) ) it was a good advert for the elimination round games to come

  • me25/06/2010 at 10:53

    I did not cry

    some italian players did though :)

    I don't like these silly overlapping matches.

    But it is in the name of fair competition, upping the tension and better games! Yesterday we were so engrossed with the Slovakia-Italy match, and the tension just got worse when we realised all NZ had to do was score to get through.

    Unfortunately, they didn't.

    The only way Portugal can go out is if Brazil and Ivory Coast win and there is a 9 goal swing.

    Sadly not as

    a) I think England will win and

    b) Yesterdays correct predo was the first right one in about 5 months

    Ivory Coast score.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 14:15

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 14:15

    Ivory Coast hit the post! Plenty of pressure on N. Korea.

  • RG25/06/2010 at 14:20

    2-0 Ivory Coast.

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 14:20

    IC score again!

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 14:21

    2-0 Ivory Coast.

    If they keep scoring at this rate Portugal are going to get nervous

  • RG25/06/2010 at 14:21

    If they keep scoring at this rate Portugal are going to get nervous

    Keep it 0-0 and they'll be fine.

    But Ivory Coast could get double figures.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 14:22

    Keep it 0-0 and they'll be fine.

    But can they trust Brazil not to nick a late goal? Especially with Dani Alves shooting from 30 yards every chance he gets

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 14:24

    That could have been red.

    Nice to see the Portugese player getting a card fo hassling the ref

  • RG25/06/2010 at 14:24

    Well done ref, Duda asking for a red card and he gets booked himself

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 14:28

    stupid internet died. Thank goodness I have my phone.

    I am of the opinion CR could have been through on goal there - should have been a red.

    stupid internet died. Thank goodness I have my phone.

    I am of the opinion CR could have been through on goal there - should have been a red.

    I agree. To me if the defender feels he has to handle it then he thinks it is a goal scoring opportunity and he knows that he is risking a red card.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 14:31

    There was contact but he dived

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 14:31

    Opportunities all over the pitch! Both should have scored.

    Thatshould have been a red card. There is absolutely no need for that

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 14:43

    Not a good atmosphere, this game. This would mean twice brazil has been involved in games where fouling almost got out of hand. :(

    I think the referee just wanted to get them off the field and try to calm things down

    I think the ref has seen enough. Better diffuse the tension know before fights really break out.

    wowsers.

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 18:55

    What a great goal

    Goalkeeper error. But that was a fantastic finish. :D

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 18:55

    Less than 7 and you forfeit the chance altogether.

    yikes. has that happened before?

    Don't think at a world cup. It has happened at other levels of football. I posted a youtube clip a while back of a local game where the team had only 6 on the pitch for the last 30 seconds but the ref decided one of their players was off being treated for an injury so was really on

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 18:56

    41st goal in 62 appearances. David Villa = goal machine.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 18:57

    Is that the sound of the referee's bottle crashing that I can hear?

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 18:58

    That was a hilarious free kick. Almost as funny as his penalty.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:05

    Penalty

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:06

    Penalty

    Stupid ref

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:06

    Fernando's finishing may have been off, but that was some nice footwork there.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:06

    2-0 Iniesta

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:06

    Andres scores!

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:06

    Ref red carding someone

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:07

    Ref red carding someone

    For the challenge on Fernando I think.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:08

    For the challenge on Fernando I think.

    BBC only just figured Estrada was sent off. They saw a red card and figured it was for that foul

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:09

    Why is it that Fernando had a hand in both goals but has not yet scored? He doesn't usually provide so many assists.

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:10

    btw, Switzerland just needs a goal to be through now. Chile better be careful.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:11

    If Switerland can win 1-0 they will be second to SPain in the group

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:11

    Vidal better be careful...

    Half time 2-0 Spain

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:18

    Xabi! :( Chileans' tackling are rapidly dropping in quality.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:33

    Two players at the Switzerland Honduras game swapped shirts at half time. Must be really dull

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:34

    Now they say two

  • Pat W25/06/2010 at 19:35

    Blimey, I just changed channel after I saw it was the 2nd half, and the ball went in!

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:36

    Chile score!

    Awful deflection off Pique wrong foots San Iker.

  • Steven Roy25/06/2010 at 19:43

    Fabregas for Torres?

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 19:47

    Fabregas for Torres?

    I am not sure that is a good thing... Spain needs 2 strikers if they want to hold the front line because David isn't very disciplined.

  • Marilene Riddle25/06/2010 at 20:20

    Full time: Chile 1 Spain 2

    What a 2nd half bore. :(
