Caught France vs Honduras. Honduras defence wasn't bad, but they had no offense. Unless you count goal attempts from halfway down the field.

Colombia has very good players. I wouldn't be surprised seeing them in the knockout stages.

 

Caught France vs Honduras. Honduras defence wasn't bad, but they had no offense. Unless you count goal attempts from halfway down the field.

 

hahah, true. But what confused me greatly that the national anthems weren't played prior to the match. Now I read that the stadium was just in time finished, but the audio wasn't functional at all. Nor could they make any announcements. This happening in a world cup is rather bad.

 

 

I can't wait to see Germany vs Portugal tonight. I'm getting excited.

Also Costa Rica winning 3:1 vs Uruguay surprised me. But I found that very amusing.

Oh dayum. 4 goals vs Portugal. Though the penalty wasn't a penalty, but still. 

Müller was fantastic.

I'm not following, because I don't really like football. However if i was, I'd be supporting France ;) 

I hope the games will be full of fair play this time !

Pah, I haven't seen much fairplay throughout the entire world cup. Best example was today. Cameroon vs Croatia. 

 

But yaay, Spain is out after loosing 2:0 vs Chile. :P

Well we suck

I heard you are off the competition or almost. But I don't quite understand how they count the points (I understood they don't count, it's just about winning or losing the games) 

 

-

 

Did you see how we won tonight ?  :king:

That was quite good, too bad for the 6th goal that doesn't count. 

 

I had to watch because otherwise I would have eaten all by myself (my family was watching while eating). After 3 goals I was playing on my brother's phone, but because there was a lot of action moments, that was quite interesting to watch (not too boring).

Yeah.  :mellow:

Costa Rica tho...they are surprisingly really good. I mean never underestimate anyone, but still. First in their group. Before England, Italy and Uruguay. Damn.

England is out after Italy lost 0:1 vs Costa Rica.
Well I'll try to explain it as simple as possible: Each time a team wins a game, they get 3 points. A draw gives both teams each one point. If a team loses they get no points. 

 

Yeah, France destroyed poor Switzerland haha.

U.S.A. :unsure:

 

I've actually watched more matches already in this years World Cup than ever in my life previously.  I think that there has been a good deal of "fair play" in most of the matches.  I thought Chile kind of milked the clock a bit on Spain, which I wish they hadn't done, because to me it detracted a bit from an otherwise great victory.  They didn't need to do it either. 

 

In spite of their two defeats I think that Australia gave a good account of itself and Iran has played better than I anticipated.  Even Brazil and Argentina have not looked like World Beaters to me yet, of course, they've done what they've needed to do to advance and that's all that matters at this point.

 

I made first round predictions on my blog and the ONLY country I pretty much summarily dismissed before the tournament was Costa Rica! :lol:

 

Shows what I know about the sport. :icontwisted8pz:

 

Colombia, Chile and Mexico have impressed me the most so far out of the teams I've seen play.  I've been working when France and Germany have played so I have not seen them yet even though I know they are formidable teams. 

 

Take courage Tom, England still has a proud history to fall back on.  :yesyes:

I want to spin it positively but that was heartbreaking! :sob:

 

I need to catch my breath.

 

The challenge is not to look back and only look forward to Monday.  IF the unmentionable happens though, there will inevitably be a lot of looking back. >.<

Apart from the fatal referee decisions this year it's been ok.

 

Well, most people couldn't predict that Costa Rica would qualify for the last 16. :P

 

Yep, I agree. Mexico and Chile played solid football. Also Colombia. Ghana played great vs Germany. They deserved the draw.

 

Arghhhhh!

That was very unlucky. The 95th minute. >_< But good for Germany, so I wasn't that unhappy. :P But I'm sure both teams will be part in the last 16. Germany and the USA only need a draw. Though I'd like to see Ghana advance as well. But meh.

 Widu, teams coming out of Manaus are winless with a combined -7 goal differential.  That doesn't look too promising for the U.S..  Nevermind the fact that it's Germany we play. 

 

I hope for you and for my friend Sabine that Germany gets the tie. :hug:   For myself I hope the U.S. wins. :tongue0020: :lol:

Colombia has been very impressive. :yesyes:

 

I'll worry about tomorrow come tomorrow.  :sweatdrop:  For today I'm interested in seeing how strong Argentina and France look heading into the round of 16.  France can cost if they want to in my mind, because they've been very good.  Argentina needs to win and find some momentum, confidence and goal scoring from anyone not named Messi.
