Serbia have a huge team, about 8 players over 1.90 tall...look a handy outfit as well

Yes, they had some success at the last several Euro U19 champs (won one and lost one final,on penalties - from memory). They are in a very strong group here, but are capable of going far in this tournament.

LOL...Didn't even notice that. Was overwhelmed by other things in the video.

But, yes very cool. She is cool, but she obviously has very cool parents (or whoever bought that shirt for her !).

Mali vs Mexico a close match, no goals at halftime but both teams with good chances. Could go either way at this point. Apparently in qualifying Mali were masters of the 1-0 win.

End result 2-0 Mali - Mehico had 9 players after 2 red cards. Gee I love Dunedin Regional Stadium. Best indoor and outdoor venue in the country I say..

The stadium looks great on tv. Makes me jealous. If only Wellington had a fully covered rectangular football ground. 

People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can't trust people.

Yeah, it's the best stadium in the country hands down - but the locals don't want it or support it.

It should be packed up and transported to Wellington or Christchurch where it would be better utilized.

75% of Dunedin residents polled opposed public funding of the stadium and there was legal action to stop it proceeding on two occassions.

No one goes to sports events there. 

The stadium costs the Dunedin ratepayers 20 million dollars a year to keep going.

Average Highlanders rugby croud last season was only 12,291 boosted by one popular Crusaders game. Several games attracted less than 10,000.

The Highlanders have never attracted more than 21,000 (in a game last year) - and 5000 of those tickets were sold to Crusaders supporters.

So only 16,000 locals maximum will attend matches in a stadium that holds 31,000

Crouds could not dip much more if the franchise was to remain viable, Clark said.

''The crouds this year will be up on last year and that is a real positive for us. But we are at a bare minimum of people coming through the gate to sustain us as a financial entity.''

Uruguay - Serbia 1:0. Not quite sure how Serbia lost that after clearly (except the first 5-10 mins of the game) being the better side , but they did and that is all that matters. Two more games to play in the group, still a chance.

was an enjoyable game, and agree Serbia looked the better, but just could not finish it off. Uruguay did some nice stuff too, and defended really well at crucial times.

Nice seeing some Uruguay fans with their banner and flags singing as they wandered along ravensbourne road/ anzac ave. Created quite a few smiles from the quiet kiwis!

Nice of the Serbian and Uruguayan lads to clap their fans after the game. Serbia definitely deserves something from that game. Was quite impressed by their number 11

Andrija Zivkovic. Plays for Partizan Belgrade. Rumours about him moving to Benfica, Portugal. Already played for the Serbian senior side.

He really did look a cut above some of the other players out on the field so not surprised he's got a senior cap!

Will the games be on today? Understand that it is an enclosed stadium, the problem is the travel in Dunedin, staff etc...

I'm trying to find that out too. Suspect they will go ahead but not expecting much of a croud. Can see the stadium lights are on at least, but there's about a kilometre of water to get through.

You know we belong together...
