First upset ?
Can the islands renowned (at least to us Indians) more for cricketing giant Brian Lara than any soccer prowess pull-off what Cameroon did in 1990 or Sengal in 2002 – the first upset of this World Cup ? I am watching the Trinidad and Tobago v/s Sweden game and so far they have held off the Swedes – even while playing with 10 men for most of the second half (~33 minutes as of now). As the Swedes tire, they are even starting to make a few offensive forays.
UPDATE: They did it!! Not quite the same giant killing achieved by Cameroon and Senegal since the latter two defeated the then defending champions. Also, Sweden, while consistent, are no football powerhouses like Argentina or France. Still, good job by this tiny nation.
