2 out of 6

Not bad on predictions. Slovenia nicked a technically vacuous game with Algeria thanks to the maverick goalkeeping of Chaouchi. Green is better but Chaouchi showed he was willing to play to the cameras to keep the ball out and then went for a safe collect instead of diving for the flashlights, which would have been better.

Anyway, Serbia are warming up to play Ghana at 3. No Appiah, so with no Essien either, there is no traditional experienced veteran in their line-up. Asamoah has done well in Italy and the coach knows what he is doing. He played 4 5 1 in Angola and took Ghana to the final. They will be tight this year. Not like 2006. But Gyan was their leading scorer at the Nations Cup and they will need him to be accurate if chances are at a premium.

Serbia's Krasic is on his way to Juventus and I want to see what all the fuss is about. But this is a strong Serb team. Ivanovic and Vidic in the backline are well known to the Premier League but Krasic is the one to watch going forward me thinks.

Tight one to call. 1 - 1 draw.
