Mexican goalie came up big time with those saves.

Brazil should of won that game if it wasn't for Mexico's goalie

So as of today we have so far Netherlands, Chile and Colombia moving up to the next stage, and possibly Australia and current World Cup Champions Spain eliminated

My condolence to Serey Die and his family who play for Ivory Coast after finding out two hours the game that his father had die. He was the player who got emotional during the playing of the national anthem.

That story is a hoax. His father had died way back in 2004. His emotional outpouring had nothing to do with that. (Other than him remembering his father wanting him to wear the national team shirt.)

 

Serey Die Squashes Father Death Reports

 

Unfortunately for him, it was his mistake late in the match which led to Colombia capitalizing & scoring their winning goal. It's extremely unlikely whatever emotional outburst he had during national anthem carried thru till late stages of the match, and was related to the mistake. Probably, just a coincidence.

How can that be. Are you telling me that you can't trust what is on the Internet. :)

It seems you can't trust what is on TV also as that is where I first heard that news.

So far this has been the best WC. The teams that are looking to attack had their chances and mostly won. The team that sat back had mostly lost. Some great games left. Hoping that in knockout games teams continue to play attacking style of soccer

you are really way off.  Can't forget WCs when Pele, Maradona, Jurgen Klisnsmann, Roberto Baggio, Ronaldao, Zinho, Cafu, Ronaldo, Valderama..etc  were playing.  these young guys really have huge shoes to fill

Yeah, but not to worry, even if USA loses with Germany they still qualified to the next round.  Portugal has -4 GD

Of course that would happen. Since they scored the second goal they played like they already won. Bit them in the ass too.

Still they let up and shouldn't have. Hopefully they both move on and this doesn't bite them and they learn from it too.

You're dismissing Ghana huh?


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Takeaways from yesterday's 2-2 draw with Portugal.

 

The good: USMNT didn't panic after Portugal scored in the 5th minute. They continued to put together good short passes and retained possession, breaking down Portugal's defense on more than one occasion and taking advantage of their weakness at left back. Klinsmann has effectively trained the players in what makes a well-played offense. Bradley, Johnson, Jones and of course Dempsey are proven internationals.

 

The bad: Inexperience in the box resulted in a bad clearance. This comes from lack of confidence in foot skills--highly useful on offense but essential at the back. In the best leagues you see defenders routinely lofting long clearing balls after successful challenges; USMNT didn't do that. Lacking in skill or in coaching? I would propose the former.

 

Now: They've survived the encounter with The Best Player in the World. Now they have to mark tightly against Germany and play the possession game they showed they could play Sunday.

I'm going for Lionel Messi as the best. C. Ronaldo is interesting, to say the least. His assist in the last 30 seconds was a beautiful piece. Looking forward to Thursday!

That's off I think. Ghana's goal differential is -1 and USA is +1. So they'd have to win by two and USA lose by one.

It's Portugal that's way back.

If it is determined that Suarez definitely bit, then yes, he should be gone for at least the rest of this tournament.

 

Prediction: They'll ask the referee, who didn't send off Suarez. They'll ask the victim, who claimed he was bitten by Suarez. But frankly, he needs to prove that it's a fresh bite mark. For all we know, it could have been delivered under, shall we say, other circumstances.

you are correct, I was referring to Portugal

 

But assuming USA ties the game, Ghana still has to win by 2.  USA losing by one means that Ghana can win by one and make it to the next round.  It will be an interesting group to keep an eye on
