MTV World Cup of Rock: Group Round Winners!

The 2010 FIFA World Cup gets back underway on Friday (July 2) when the final eight teams start squaring off for a chance to continue playing for soccer’s most coveted trophy. Today, the MTV World Cup of Rock kicks off its knockout round, which will see the two top qualifiers from each group advance to an eight-team single-elimination tournament, and in the end, only one country will be left standing to prove that it rocks the hardest and the best. Like the actual World Cup, the top seeds from each group will play the second-place finisher from an adjacent group (so the winner of Group A will play the runner-up of Group B, and the winner of Group C will play the second-place team in Group D)…

Group B
This group was all about South Korea, who hopped onto the Rain bandwagon and never looked back. Their dominating victories over the rest of the group earned them a top seed. In second place, the United States of America caught fire in the final hours of the opening round (not unlike the actual U.S. soccer team) and narrowly edged out England for a spot in the tournament….

Ahhh… teams USA and South Korea being eliminated from the FIFA World Cup last weekend stings a little less now.  Group B all the way, with Rain at top seed!  *listening to the choirs singing*  We are stoked. 😀

The Final 8 knockout round has begun today with Germany versus Italy, and Australia versus Japan.  Rest up, Clouds.

Have a great Thursday, all.
