WC 2006 Match Chat: Group H finale, 7 am PT

Ukraine vs. Tunisia from Berlin

Spain vs. Saudi Arabia from Kaiserslautern

Spain, which came into the World Cup saddled with a tradition of choking, has shown that it wants to go far and has already qualified with the second round with convincing wins over Ukraine (4-0) and Tunisia (3-1). Even with reserves going, Spain should be able to take apart Saudi Arabia.

Ukraine recovered from its shellacking against Spain to apply its own shellacking to Saudi Arabia (4-0), which in turn announced that it will no longer export shellac. Ukraine will grab the second spot with a win or tie. Tunisia must win to advance and then hope that Saudi Arabia doesn't beat Spain by a ridiculous margin (which is likely.)

Saudi Arabia is still alive if it can beat Spain and the goal difference can be made up on both Tunisia and Ukraine.

The ref in the Ukraine-Tunisia match can at least count to two with yellow cards.

I think that Korea and Switzerland will be going all out to get the right to face one of these sides (UKR or TUN) in the next round.

Ukraine looks baffled. Tunisia doesn't look like it has a prayer.

That should be enough for Ukraine in this one.
