2006 World Cup Opening Ceremony (Munich, Germany)

Classy, culturally rich and tasteful.

You can catch the coverage here:

Germany vs Costa Rica starts in about 10 minutes, with Ballack out of the starting lineup, but with Costa Rica’s bad performance in the recent friendlies and with Germany pumped up to perform in front of the home crowd, it should be a one-sided match.

The other match today is Ecaudor vs Poland, with Poland tipped to win.

I’ll catch you guys after today’s matches.
