    It's 6h55am (Sunday) in Beijing right now. Do the calculation with your current time to find out the time difference. I'm lazy in math too (I'll calculate paris-beijing time difference when I need it).

    Honduras 0 - 3 Italy
    Cote d'Ivoire 1 - 2 Argentina
    Netherlands 0 - 0 Nigeria
    China 1 - 1 New Zealand

    Today's Results:

    Argentina 1 - 0 Australia
    Nigeria 2 - 1 Japan
