You think Argentina and Ghana would be the two favourites to go through. Austria maybe to claim one of the third place positions.

Think I'd pick Ghana to qualify above Panama myself.

Can see how Panama finished ahead of US in qualifying, looking good vs one of the favourites. Robbed by first Argentina goal well offside, absolute cracker of an equaliser. This is a killer group.

With two games on at the same time, I want to watch one game (Argentina v. Panama) and watch the USA v Mynamar match later.

I have Sky but not MySky.

However, Sky are not repeating ANY games whatsoever.

Very poor....

They have all their extra pop-up channels - but no football on any of them.

Two of the pop-up channels are not being used at all today until 10.30 pm and 12.30 am

Sky are such wonkers !!!

You can complain to Sky here:

Ha Ha

The second Argentina goal came from the longest ball out of defence seen in the tournament so far.

Nothing wrong with the odd long ball to mix things up, even from the most skilfull sides

(Says this former hoofing centre-back)

Nz didn't attempt any balls that long today...

Fudge  -what great second half !!!

Angel Correa running riot and scoring

Now a nice volley from Panama's Escobar to tie it 2-2

Ohhhhhh....

Carlos Small breaks and can't finish with only the keeper to beat....

Skillfull Argies and fast counter-attacking Panamanians.

Love the Panamanians. Were paying 14 bucks to win pool before tourney and also over three dollars with a 0.5 goal start against Argie. Now that was value!

That was a great game to watch, great football! Argentina very skilful, a bit unlucky in front of goal. Happy for Panama to draw, they played with a lot of heart.

Anybody knows the attendance? Looked the a average Phoenix croud.

Croud numbers look very poor. Disappointing.

Surprised by Austria, they look a silky side. Have jumped on the Ghana bandwagon in the past, but didn't enjoy their play much... May improve in different conditions though!

Cameras on wrong side of pitch I.e. same side as most of croud - opposite side to where they are for Nix games. That's why croud looks poor.

Was at game, I'd guess 10k for first game then thinned out for second game and thinned out again at half time in second game.

It was bloody cold.

Already outdone by Christchurch with 12,000 tickets sold by mid-day Thursday for the first double-header here on Monday.

And that's for games where the opponents for Germany and Honduras are Fiji and Uzbekistan, two of the most unglamorous sdies in the tournie.

Maybe a Fifa delegate needs to threaten taking games to Auckland to get the Wellingtonians to turn up?

Croud figures today of 9,400 were on par with what anyone could reasonably expect. Looked worse on TV coverage than at the ground because everyone had moved high up in the stands to get out of the rain.

Austria definitely parked a big red bus in the second half and really invited the Ghanians to attack them. Ghana lucky to get the draw, bit of a shame Austria didn't get all 3 as they looked good for most of the match.
