RAUL

(Spain)

Poor old Raul. What must he make of this? The loyal servant to the Spanish national side suffered as the tag of nearly men or bottlers was stuck to his generation. Then he was moved aside and the new crop came along and won Euro 2008. This evening, they should move beyond the World Cup quarter-final hurdle that the Real Madrid veteran failed to cross.

zulu slang of the day

'Mal'

Someone who is a bit crazy or insane. Diego Maradona has been called 'mal' -- and often with good reason -- yet the 'malman' could take Argentina to a World Cup semi-final today.

bet of the day

Draw/Spain @ 3/1

In the half-time/full-time market, this combination appeals. The Paraguayan defence has been mean, but the Spanish can eventually triumph.
