Turkey vs. Latvia; France vs. Hong Kong; Denmark vs. Finland
What appears to be three one-sided matches on paper turn out to be pretty contested. Not only that, but we have a Nordic fight, with Su-san sure to be patrolling the sidelines to keep Denmark honest. Latvia raises eyebrows by at least doing his frantic scrambling *with* the ball, Hong Kong continues to be stubborn, and you'll never believe who makes the biggest flub of the tournament so far. Meanwhile, America tries to get a game of American football together. It doesn't end well.
The FIFA World Cup in South Africa is over, but the Hetalia World Cup lives on! Thirty-two Hetalia countries from Italy to Iceland are invited. The draw is random and matches will be simulated through the FIFA World Cup '06 video game. Because it's the 2006 edition, Germany gets saddled with the task of hosting, which may prove to be more tiring than actually playing. Along the way, we'll have commentary, interviews, and behind the scenes access.
