Spotflick blowing its own Trumpet

Posted by adminNo CommentsJul 10, 2010

Spotflick the Penalty Shoot Out Game for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad decided to jump on the World Cup band-wagon and brand itself on an item that has become one of the most talked about features of the World Cup. No not Larissa Riquelme’s chest, or Diego Maradona’s jewelry, or even Robbie Earle’s missing tickets. But rather the good old Vuvuzela.

In case you had been wondering what the strange noise was in the stadium during every football match at the World Cup, I can confirm that it wasn’t a swarm of killer bees but in fact it was a swarm of vuvuzela tooting football fans. The vuvuzela has become one of the most talked about horns of this World Cup, even more than Iker Casillas and John Terry’s respective horns. So it seemed only right that the best World Cup Penalty Shoot Out Game – Spotflick – should have a few branded vuvuzela’s. If you want to get yourself a copy of Spotflick head on over to iTunes where you can not only get Spotflick but you can also get Spotflick Lite – the free penalty shoot out game!

World Cup Day 23 – Spotflick Round Up

Posted by adminNo CommentsJul 08, 2010

Day 23 saw the second semi-final of the 2010 World Cup between reigning European Champions Spain, and Germany, a team who had been to the semi-finals of the World Cup 11 times previously.

South Africa 2010 World Cup logo

The omens weren’t good for the Spanish. Germany had beaten Spain in all three of their previous World Cup encounters, and this year the Germans had been in imperious form, scoring four goals in games against England and Argentina, two of the supposedly stronger sides in the tournament. Spain had lost their opening game to Switzerland, and had ground out a series of 1-0 victories on their way to the semi-final, disposing off Portugal and Paraguay.

Spain opted to start without Fernando Torres up front, after he failed to prove that he has fully recovered from his injury with a series of lacklustre performances so far in the World Cup. The same could not be said of David Villa who is the tournaments joint top scorer, netting 5 times. Germany’s striker Miroslav Klose had been in similarly ruthless form, netting 4 times, along with Thomas Mueller. Could Spain finally find the form that saw the crowned European Champions against Germany 2 years ago, or would Germany continue their dismantling of top class opposition under the guidance of Jaochim Loew?

The game was an intriguing encounter, with Spain dominating possession with some slick passing football, making Germany do all of the running. But Spain yet again failed to create many clear cut chances despite their superior possession. The Germans who had also been dominated in terms of possession by Argentina and England, but had been devastating on the counter attack, were not getting the opportunity to strike back against the Spanish. There were a few chances at either end, Puyol heading over from Spain’s best chance, and the referee waving away penalty claims after Mesut Ozil was bundled over just inside the penalty area. So it was 0-0 at half time.

After the break Spain upped the tempo and continued to dominate possession. But they were now creating genuine chances and the German goal was getting peppered by the Spanish. Alonso, Pedro and Villa all having a pop at goal, but a goal just would not come.

Spotflick Germany Spain World Cup Penalty Shoot Out Game Semi Final

Germany tried to change things up and threw on Marcell Jansen and Toni Kroos as the blue sweatered one – Joachim Loew – tried to get Germany back into the game. Germany had seemed content to absorb pressure up this point rather than try and really test the Spanish defence, and they were soon made to regret it when Carlos Puyol made amends for his earlier miss by rocketing in a header from a Xavi corner to make it 1-0 to Spain. It was an absolute corker of a header and showed that England’s influence on the World Cup lives on. Spain learning to grind out 1-0 wins with bread and better goals just like England have grown accustomed to doing.

Germany pressed for an equaliser, but found themselves more exposed at the back and Spain should have made it 2-0 when Pedro found himself in acres of space with Torres in support and only one German defender to beat. Inexplicably he tried to go it on his own when a square ball to Torres would have surely wrapped the game up. Torres looked understandably annoyed when Pedro lost possession and if Germany had equalised after that he would have been facing a grilling from his teammates that would have made the Spanish Inquisition look like a hen party. But Germany couldn’t find an equaliser and the game ended 1-0 and Spain will now meet Holland in the World Cup Final in Johannesburg on July 11th.

The German loss put a further dent in the assumption that the Spotflick Cup can be used as a barometer of form for the World Cup Nations. Holland proved yesterday that they were indeed better then Uruguay, but Spain don’t even feature in the top 30 teams in the Spotflick Cup Table, while Germany were in 10th place. I won’t mention the fact that England are top as proof that this is not a true reflection on the footballing prowess of a World Cup team, but it does tell us which fans are better at penalty flicks!

World Cup Day 22 – Spotflick Round Up

Posted by adminNo CommentsJul 07, 2010

So here we are at the business end of the World Cup. Semi-final time. 32 teams had pitched up in South Africa a few weeks ago with the hope of reaching this stage. (Well….31 teams, and France) But now we are down to the last 4. The South American domination that was predicted didn’t come to pass and only one of their teams remained, Uruguay. The rest of the quartet were from Europe and it looked highly likely that the winner would come from this trio, but as we have seen in this World Cup, the only thing you can take for granted, is to take nothing for granted.

South Africa 2010 World Cup Logo Spotflick

So the first semi-final was to be contested between Uruguay and Holland. Uruguay had reached this stage of the tournament amid a cloud of controversy following their penalty shoot out win over Ghana. Luis Suarez being the villain of the piece. He had palmed away a goal-bound header deep into injury time that would have seen Ghana pull off a sensational win. He was shown a red card and a penalty was awarded. Unfortunately Ghana’s reliable penalty taker Asamoah Gyan fluffed his lines and fired the spotkick over the bar sending the game into penalties. Uruguay showed some great penalty kicking skills worthy of Spotflick, beating Ghana 4-2 and advancing into the last four.

Holland had a more uneventful road to the semi-final, but still had to overcome pre-tournament favourites Brazil in the quarter finals, needing to pull off a thrilling comeback to reach the last four. The Dutch have now won all 5 of their World Cup matches breaking their previous best record of 4 consecutive wins held by the great Dutch team of 1974. That Dutch team had introduced Total Football to the world stage with players like Johan Cruyff and Johan Neeskens. Similarly in 2010 England, with players like Emile Heskey and Gareth Barry, introduced us to Total Sh*te Football. Could the Dutch emulate the great teams on the 1970’s by reaching the World Cup final and could Uruguay relive their glory days of the 30’s and 50’s when they were one of the dominant forces in World Football. It promised to be a great game.

The game got off to a slow start, caused in no small part by the fact that Clive Tyldesley was commentating on the game on his own after Jim Beglin had been struck down by  an ear infection. Shame. Probably caused by having to listen to Tyldesley talk absolute gravy into his ear for the last few weeks. But the game was sparked into life in the 18th minute when ex-Rangers man Giovanni Van Bronckhorst fired in an absolute scorching goal from a good 3o yards out. It was an unstoppable shot that bounced in off the post, giving the Uruguayan keeper no chance of saving it. What a goal. The Uruguayans looked rattled after this and struggled to find an sort of fluency after Gio’s net-buster.

But the Dutch were struggling to find any sort of form as well and could not capitalise on Uruguay’s uncertainty. Just before the break, it was Holland’s turn to be shell-shocked as Diego Forlan found a bit of space outside the box and fired a shot in on goal. It swerved viciously but was pretty much straight at the keeper. But Maarten Stekelenburg is no Van Der Saar and the ball found it’s way into the back of the net. This was Forlan’s third goal from outside of the box, becoming the first person since Lothar Matthaus in 1990 to achieve this feat. So it finished 1-1 at half time.

Spotflick Holland Uruguay World Cup Penalty Shoot Out Game

After the break neither team was able to seize the initiative and I was fairly sure that we were going to see another penalty shoot out, and fancied Uruguay to do the business again based on their powerful performance in the shoot out against Ghana. But 2 goals within the space of 5 minutes broke Uruguayan hearts and sent the Dutch to the final for the first time since 1978.

The first goal was from the in-form Wesley Sneijder who scored his seventh goal in his last eight international matches. It was a bizarre goal in that looked to be blatantly offside. Sneijder fired a shot on goal from inside the box through a group of Uruguay players. Robin Van Persie was standing in the way of the ball and seemed to get a flick on the ball as it headed for the net. The last defender seemed to step forward as if to ensure it was obvious that Van Persie was offside, but the linesman did not give it and the goal stood. Van Persie didn’t get a touch after all but there was no denying that he was standing in an offside position when Sneijder kciked the ball. There was a muted celebration as everyone seemed to be sure that it was offisde, but there was no offside given and Holland took a 2-1 lead.

Spotflick Holland Uruguay World Cup Semi Final Penalty Kick Game

There could be no arguments about Holland’s third goal though as Robben used his balding napper to prod home an excellent cross from Dirk Kuyt to all but finish the Uruguayans off. All three Dutch goals had gone in off the post giving Muslera no chance of recreating his goalkeeping heroics of the Ghana game. Maxi Pereira scored deep into injury time to set up a gripping finale, which must have been giving the Dutch coach an ulcer or two. The 3 minutes of added time came and went and Uruguay threw everyone forward in a desperate search for an equaliser. In the 5th minute of stoppage time the ref finally blew his whistle after some frantic Dutch defending inside their own box. So the Dutch won the game 3-2 and will now face either Spain or Germany in an all -European final in Johannesburg on Sunday.

If we were to use the Spotflick Cup as a guide to form then Holland were deserving winners tonight as they currently sit 4th in the Spotflick Cup Table while Uruguay are 11th. Northern Ireland and the USA are slowly eating into England’s lead at the top of the table but with only a few days left in the World Cup will they have enough time to catch them?

Spotflick Cup Table

Tomorrow sees 9th place Germany take on Spain who do not even feature in the top 30! So if you believe in the power of the Cup you know where to put your money. Although the Cup does have England as the best team, which is something of a slight on its level of accuracy!

Spotflick’s Classic Shoot Outs – England v Portugal 2006

Posted by admin29 CommentsJul 05, 2010

Another Classic Penalty Shoot Out features, surprise surprise, England, but this time it not the usual suspects of Argentina or Germany but rather fellow World Cup underachievers Portugal. This time it is the Quarter Final of the World Cup in Germany 2006. The match was a tempestuous affair, highlighted by the moment when Wayne Rooney stamped on Carvalhos’ maracas. Somehow this seemed to go unnoticed by the referee, but being such a good sport Christiano Ronaldo stepped in and politely informed the referee that kicking a man in the cornflakes might be considered a foul. Wayne, being the calm collected individual that he is, wasn’t particulalry thrilled with his and gave Ronaldo a playful shove. The referee saw it and deemed this a far more heinous infraction than studding a player in the old wife’s best friend and promptly gave Rooney his marching orders.

Yet again England had a scapegoat to blame for failing to win a World Cup match by pure talent and skill. Luckily for Wayne, Ronaldo wasn’t finished. Just as the English footballing watching public were ordering the Shrek dolls from Argos in order to simulate a few public hangings, Ronaldo showed what a class act he is by winking at this colleagues in a gesture of triumpht at having got Wayne sent off. So, as quickly as that, there was a new scapegoat to blame and the Winker became the most hated man in Britain, usurping Richard Madeley with a simple blink of an eyelid. Luckily for Ronaldo, the English public are a fickle bunch, as David Beckham will tell you, and all was soon forgiven when Ronaldo came back to the UK and started banging in goals from all over the park for Man United.

Anyway, I digress. The match finished 1-1 and extra time could not seperate the teams either so it was to be decided by penalties. Maybe it was this time that England would excorcise their demons. They had Lampard and Gerrard both regular penalty takers for their clubs. Maybe this was it. Surely England couldn’t lose again!

But lose, and lose royally they did! This isn’t to say that they didn’t flatter to decieve. Portugal missed 2 of their first three penalties giving England an excellent opportunity to finally get the World Cup Penalty Shoot Out monkey off their back. Lampard missed his penalty, Hargreaves buried his and then it fell to Stevie Gerrard to give England an unlikely lead and put them in the driving seat. But no. He missed. Apparently £100,000 a week isn’t sufficient enough a salary to expect you to be able to stick the ball into the back of the net from 12 yards. So it fell to Jamie Carragher to try and keep England in it. And he scored! But before the referee had blown his whistle. You couldn’t script it. Carragher had to retake the penalty and this time Ricardo guessed right and saved it. So it fell to Christiano ‘Winker‘ Ronaldo to seal England’s fate which he obviously did, as he is that sort of hateful pr**k where everything goes right for him. Portugal ran out 3-1 winners and marched on the World Cup semi-final where thankfully they were beaten by France.

So England will have yet to win a penalty shoot out at the World Cup but you can change that with Spotflick – the Penalty Shoot Out Game for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. You can lead England to Spotflick Cup glory this summer and prove that, even if your team can’t take penalties, the fans can! Go to www.spotflick.com to find out more!

World Cup Day 20 – Spotflick Round Up

Posted by admin3 CommentsJul 05, 2010

After a couple of days off the World Cup was back. I wasn’t sure whether to call this Day 20 of the World Cup as it is the twentieth day of World Cup matches but it was the twenty second day since the tournament started. I went for Day 20 and I stand by that decision, but I immediately regret having to explain myself and it doesn’t make for a very interesting read. Anyhoo…

Spotlfick Cup World Cup penalty Shoot Out Game

The first game of the day was the pant-tightening encounter between Brazil and Holland. This was the 10th meeting between these sides, with Brazil having won three to Holland’s two, with four draws. The last time they met in the World Cup was in the 1998 semi-final, which Brazil won on penalties. So hopefully the Dutch had been preparing for this clash with a healthy dose of Spotflick action, just in case the match went the distance.

Both teams had been playing some good football in the tournament so far, but had failed to really find their feet and play to their full potential. They had both been on the end of some pretty harsh criticism from their respective country’s press for not living up to expectations. Brazil’s coach Dunga had come under a lot of criticism for his willingness to put results before playing samba-style football. Fair enough I say. And the Dutch had also attracted criticism for not being as talented as the Dutch teams of the late 1970’s. But come on, how can you criticise a team that in unbeaten in 23 games. And I thought the English press were hard on Fabio and his boys, but if they were performing like the Dutch the red tops would fizzing at the mouth. But, it was hoped that both teams today would find their form in this match and we would be treated to a World Cup Classic.

The match might not be remembered as a classic but it certainly did not disappoint and will give the red tops plenty to write about, never mind what Brazil and Holland’s press will do. In the first half Brazil looked the stronger side and took a deserved lead in only the 10th minute when Robinho  ran on to a Felipe Melo pass that split the Dutch defence apart like wax off a Babybel. The Brazilians looked like they had the measure of the Dutch, playing it very tight at the back and creating chances at the other end, and it was only the heroics of Dutch keeper Maarten Stekelenburg that stopped Brazil stretching their lead.

Spotflick Holland Brazil World Cup Penalty Kick game

But after the break the Brazilians seemed to fall apart and the Dutch seemed like a different team (insert half time Oranges gag here). It all started when Holland equalised in bizarre fashion. Wesley Sneijder floated a cross into the box from wide on the right. Brazil’s reliable shot stopper Julio Cesar came out to punch the ball clear but made a complete Jakki Brambles of it, missing the ball completely and clattering into Felipe Melo. The ball then struck the off balance Melo on the napper and went into the net. The Dutch were back in it.

Spotflick Holland Brazil Goal World Cup Penalty Kick game

Brazil seemed to go to pieces after this and the Dutch took the lead in the 68th minute through Wesley Sneijder. A Dutch corner was flicked on by Dirk Kuyt at the near post and the unmarked Sneijder nodded home the simplest of goals to send the Oranje fans wild. Brazil were now chasing the game and tempers began to flare. Things went from bad to worse for Brazil when Felipe Melo, capped off a sensational shift in the Brazilian shirt by getting sent off. So Melo, set up a goal, scored an own goal and got sent off. A busy day for him and a bit of a mare for anyone who had him on their Dream Team. There could be no complaints about the card though. He fouled Robben, who to be fair fell to the deck and started howling, but Robben had been acting up all day, going down quicker than a Russian sub and rolling around on the deck under the gentlest of challenges. I must say I had a certain sympathy for Melo as if I had the chance to stick the boot into Robben I would probably take it, but this is the World Cup Quarter Final. Total Madness. Straight red. Nice to see Robben get some shoe pie though.

Brazil pressed hard for an equaliser, but with time running out and down to 10 men they just couldn’t find a way through the Dutch defence. It ended 2-1 and Holland looked like they had just created a cure for baldness. The delight on their faces was clear to see as they looked dead and buried at half time but pulled off a remarkable comeback to dump Brazil unceremoniously out of the World Cup. Dunga will not be looking forward to meeting the press after this game. I wonder if he now regrets not taking this big lad?

The second match of the day was between Ghana and Uruguay, with a place in the semi-finals against Holland up for grabs. The two teams had never met before in a competitive match and I must say that I didn’t know what to expect from this game. But it turned out to be a gripping watch with more end to end action than Wimbledon, and an ending more impressive than Jennifer Lopez.

Just as it looked like the first half was going to end goalless, Sulley Muntari picked the ball up in the Uruguay half and when he realised that no one was going to close him down decided to have a pop at goal. To be fair no one closed him down as he was about 40 yards from goal, but Sulley proceeded to slap his shot right into the back of the net. You could point the finger at the Uruguayan keeper Muslera for getting beaten from such a distance but the old Jabulani is a tricky little fella to predict, especially when it is lashed at you at about 90 mph. That was the last kick of the half, and what a blow for Uruguay.

But Uruguay came out fighting in the second half and got themselves back into the game in the 55th minute. This time is was Diego Forlan who used the jabulani to bamboozle the Ghanaian goalie as his free kick swerved erratically in the air and wrong footed the keeper and nestled into the back of the net. The game ended 1-1 so the game went into extra time, but few could have guessed that this match would end in such dramatic fashion. Both sides failed to seize the initiative in the additional time and the game looked destined to go to penalties but in the dying moments Ghana mounted a last desperate attack to try and get the goal that would see them become the first African semi-finalists in World Cup history. And it looked like they would score when Steven Appiah fired a loose ball in the box towards the Uruguayan goal, but Suarez, who was stood on the line, blocked it with his leg only for Adiyiah to react to the rebound and head the ball towards the goal again. This time Suarez took a more unorthodox approach to blocking the ball and palmed the ball away from goal in a move that would not have looked out of place on the volleyball court. Thankfully the ref spotted it and awarded the penalty and showed Suarez a red card.

Spotflick Uruguay Ghana World Cup Penalty Shoot Out Game

But that was not the end of the drama. Up stepped Asamoah Gyan to take the penalty that would keep Africa’s World Cup dream alive. He had already proved his worth from the spot scoring 2 penalties already in the tournament and showing some great Spotflick tekkers. But he fired his spotkick over the bar with the last kick of the game! It was going to go to penalties. Drama.

Uruguay went first in the shoot out and the impressive Diego Forlan opened the scoring with a confident penalty kick. Unbelieveably Asamoah Gyan stepped up to take Ghana’s first. He must have some big old swingers as he expertly fired the ball into the top corner in what is one of the most impressive penalties I have ever seen. Unfortunatle Gyan seemed to be the only playyer who had been using Spotflick to practice his penalties as both Mensah and Adiyiah both missed with pretty tame penalties taken off a very short run up. It was then down to Sebastian Abreu to secure the win for Uruguay and he showed that he also possesses a pair of swingers of similar magnitude to Gyan by audaciously chipping the ball down the middle to break African hearts and send Uruguay through to the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1970. A more dramtic end to a game you will struggle to see, and Suarez’s deliberate handball paid handsome dividends for his team but will undoubtedly be the most talked about handball at a World Cup since the ‘Hand of God‘.

Believe it or not but after the drama of the penalty shoot out some Ghana fans must have got themselves Spotflick in order to put their penalty shoot out heartbreak behind them. Ghana posted a number of victories in the Spotflick Cup yesterday, but England continued their impressive run, chalking up another couple of wins to maintain their impressive lead over the chasing pack. While Ghana still have some way to go before catching England, as we have seen with this World Cup, you never know what’s going to happen!
