Here’s to Great Plataeu, the biggest upset so far!

Yeah I’d have to say that’s probably true, especially considering GP won the group outright over Graymalkin, Corneria, and Bionis.  The fact that Bionis and Corneria are going home, especially the latter, is a bit of a shock.


Mushroom Kingdom going home is a shock as well.  Granted, with Green Hill Zone, Kongo Jungle, and Mushroom Kingdom all getting drawn together, somebody was going to get shafted there. Dixie Kong’s late goal last night kept her country alive at MK’s expense.

Star Continent 3-2 Sarasaland F/AET - Fisht Olympic Stadium, Sochi

Kanto 2-3 Great Sea - Ural Arena, Yekaterinburg 

Goal - Tetra, Pikachu, Hitmonlee, Komali, Medli

YC - Ash Ketchum

RC - Ash Ketchum (2nd yellow, misses next match)


10pm EST - matches kick off!


2’ - Star Continent vs Sarasaland promises to be a heated battle, and Bowyer gets booked after just 90 seconds after taking Daisy out with a kick at the ankles.  


6’ - First goal...comes in Yekaterinburg!  It’s Tetra who converts a free kick following a foul by Brock.  Huge start for Great Sea.  Kanto won’t panic though, they overcame an 0-2 hole last match and they are defending champion


9’ - Mingella goes into the book for a foul against Urbosa


11’ - Jonathan Jones gets tangled up with Dragonzamasu in the area and the two butt heads and give some heated words.  The ref books both of them and tells them to cool it


15' - Ken goes into the book for an intentional foul against Knuckles as the latter was breaking down the field on the counter.  Knew exactly what he was doing there.


18' - This time it didn't take Kanto long to find an equalizer.  They are deadly on set pieces, and once again it's Pikachu with an agility header at the back post, leaving Valoo with no chance in the Great Sea net.  Game on!


19' - Very next minute and the tournament cinderellas Great Plateau have conceded.  It's Humba Wumba who makes a great move down the left and she chips it in for Banjo, who buries it from near the penalty spot.  Some very poor defending there but an outstanding finish.


21' - It's getting very chippy in Sochi.  Wario goes into the book for a takeout slide challenge against Croco, who had some choice words for his adversary.  You can almost tell that these teams have a score to settle here.


23' - Shadow goes into the book for a rash challenge against Vega as the Spaniard was looking to counter.  This game is an interesting battle of speed versus power...no goals yet.


30' - How about that?!  On the half hour mark in Kazan, Urbosa's free kick is headed home by Revali, who simply beat Gobi and Mumbo to the ball.  1-1!


32' - Yellow card comes out for Zyle, who was a little too physical and bowled over Tooty near the center circle


35' - Kanto go 2-1 up!  Great Sea's defenders do a better job against defending the initial set piece, but the ball is recycled to Hitmonlee, who takes an audacious shot from 25 yards out and puts it in off the left post.  What a snipe!


37' - Yaridovich gets booked for a fairly blatant elbow against Waluigi on an aerial ball.  That was dangerous, and could well have been a red.  He might be lucky to still be on the pitch.


38' - Less than a minute later, Hoiyohoi flattens Geno with a hip check as the latter made a move toward goal about thirty yards out.  He sees yellow.  It'll be a miracle if nobody is sent off in this match the way it's going right now. 


47' - Right off the halftime break, Green Hill Zone break the deadlock.  It's a great move by Sonic to get into the area, and he squares it off for an oncoming Shadow, who pounds it in past Edmond Honda.  1-0 to GHZ


49' - We also have a goal in Sochi!  And it's just who you'd expect.  It was Totomesu getting forward from the fullback spot and squaring a cross toward Waluigi.  His header is initially saved by Frogfucius but SC fail to get it clear and Daisy cleans up the mess with a tidy finish into the bottom corner.  1-0 Sarasaland!


54' - Nazbi picks up a yellow card for a tackle against Banjo


57' - Great Sea are hanging tough and it's now 2-2.  Tetra makes an incisive move before finding Toon Link, who lofts it to the back post where Komali rises highest to score.  The aerial prowess of these teams is on full display in this match.


60' - Earthsf is in real trouble now.  Amy Rose isn't closed down at all, and about 30 yards away she pulls the trigger.  The result is a rocket that finds the top left corner.  Amy runs to the corner and proceeds to "hammer" the corner flag in celebration.  Awesome stuff.


62' - Guile goes into the book for a rash challenge against Knuckles.  The frustration might be setting in a bit for Earthsf.


64' - Valentina scores a stunner to level the match for Star Continent!  Geno set the play up with a solid run down the left, played it into Mallow who laid it off well in the box for Valentina, who drills it past Tatanga.  She then proceeds to take off her jersey...revealing "I <3 You Booster" on her abdomen as she points into the crowd.  This gets her a yellow card but she cares not.


67' - Ash Ketchum goes into the book for a tripping challenge on Toon Link.  In contrast to the mayhem in Sochi, that's the first card of the night in Yekaterinburg.


69' - Earthsf might have a lifeline after all.  It's a shot by Ryu that is saved initially by Eggman but on the rebound Chun Li tries an audacious bicycle kick and finds the net.  Spectacular. 


71' - Gobi gets his challenge all wrong and into the book for kicking Mipha in the dorsal fin.  That was bad but unintentional in the eyes of the referee.


74' - Sarasaland go back into the lead.  The shot by Wario is off the crossbar and Frogfucius appears to make an incredible save off the line, but after consulting with the VAR, its clear that the ball was over the line.  2-1 to Sarasaland!


78' - Great Sea have the lead once again!  Orca, just subbed on, makes a brilliant run down the left and feeds Toon Link, who again plays distributor, this time finding Medli, who deflects it in past Mr Mime for 3-2.


82' - Mumbo Jumbo picks up a yellow card after knocking over GP Zelda. 


84' - That could be the goal that sends Cinderella one step closer to the big ball!  Kapson plays it across to Urbosa, and then she finds Fyson, who directs in the ball with his beak.  2-1 to Great Plateau.


85' - Ash Ketchum picks up a second yellow card for a foul on Tetra and is ejected.  Kanto down to 10 players!


90'+1 - That seals the deal in Samara...Tails leads out a 3 v 1 breakaway thanks to EarthSF committing so many players forward, he then finds Sonic who buries it past Edmond Honda to send Green Hill Zone to the WC Semifinals


90'+4 - Star Continent earn a corner with 30 seconds left and bring everybody forward including the keeper.  The corner is swung in by Geno and would you believe it, Frogfucius rises highest to head it home!  SC save themselves right at the death!


11:35pm - Full time


It's over in Kazan, Samara, and Yeketarinburg, as Great Sea, Great Plateau, and Green Hill Zone advance to the World Cup Semifinals this Wednesday.  Thanks to some late drama we don't yet have a winner in Sochi, as Sarasaland-Star Continent now goes to extra time, which, as per NAFA rules, will be "golden goal"


94' - Yaridovich knocks over Daisy on the counterattack, and is shown a second yellow card and is ejected!  Star Continent is now down to 10 players.


99' - Oh my goodness...now Bowyer commits a foul against Tokotoko and he is yellow carded and then shown the red.  SC has now lost 2 players and must play 9 on 11 for the remainder of overtime.


104' - Following 2 amazing saves by Frogfucius to keep the game alive...there's a goalmouth scramble and in the end Waluigi gets to it and tries to kick it home into a mostly empty net but the ball is batted away off the line intentionally by Mallow.  He's shown the red card, the 3rd SC player to be red carded in the last 10 minutes!  Penalty kick coming up.


105'+1 - Waluigi's penalty is perfect and he buries it.  Frogfucius guessed right but couldn't get to it as it hits the net.  Ballgame.  Sarasaland advance to the WC semifinals.

Foul for SC right off the bat. Gonna be fun.


Easy there Dragonzamasu. Don’t take yourself out for a possible semifinals match with another yellow card.


You too Wario. Keep yourself together or you’re ejected.


Im gonna be stunned if no one gets booted too.




Well they tied it. And she STILL loves Booster! Wow.


And what she did brought back memories of THAT in Paris 3 years ago. Good tines.


The lead is ours thanks to VAR. That and a good shot by Wario too.


Well we’re going into the sudden death overtime and the winning goal ends it. Hopefully it’s us.


Use that 1 man advantage and get the victory. Don’t blow this golden opportunity given to us.


Make that a 2 man advantage. Or just let them get three more ejections and we win via forfeit on account of 5 ejected SC players in one match. Either way, don’t blow it.


A 3rd SC player is out? Oh my. And a chance for Waluigi to put it to bed. Good luck.


Waluigi, if you want to have some fun with the Russian women tonight, go ahaead. You’ve sent us to the semis so you’ve EARNED a break.

'42- I was bound to lose my patience for Great Sea, but Tetra turned the tides around!

How about that, a pair of semifinal matches decided in extra time by 6-5 scores.  That’s just too good.  


Xander, I thank you for the work you’ve done on this tournament, particularly here in the knockout stage.  Very gripping and dramatic theatre on the pitch.  


The World Cup third place match and final will take place on Friday evening...matches will probably start early around 7 or 8pm Eastern

Factoring in a 9 hour time zone difference, the match would be played on Saturday morning at 2-3 AM, Moscow time.
