The best goal of the tournament so far, scored by Argentina and Esteban Cambiassio, after a 24 pass move. This goal is in fact related to Shanghai. Honestly.
Shanghaiist will just take this moment to note who is leading the chase for a Shanghaiist t-shirt (oh yes) in the ESPN World Cup Pick ’em:
- T. Kruemmer
- T. Vanderbilt
- Nick Withycombe
Yes, that was shameless.
In absolutely definitely China-related World Cup news:
- The World Cup has achieved the impossible in improving Beijing’s traffic situation.
- The German consulate in Shanghai is showing a World Cup art exhibit.
- Australia’s women’s team lost 2-1 to the China women’s team in Shanghai — they play each other one more time, on Monday the 19th of June, at the Shanghai FA Training Centre … we have searched and searched in vain to find out where that actually is, does anyone know where exactly the game will be played?
