Was it ever! And Pepe is not gonna appear in the next game....
That was a fantastic game but I think they played better in their last game that was a warm up. And that bodes well. Just amazing game though. Hard to hold a lead that long like that. I hope they are more aggressive in the next game.
Seems that when they lost Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey was injured, they collectively decided to "park the bus." They played like in their worst days: two or three short passes, a long ball, and possession lost. They are far more skilled than that! It is a credit to them that when Ghana equalized, they ramped up their offense, leading to the corner Brooks converted on. Four years ago they didn't have a player who could deliver such a brilliant header.
Now, Klinsmann has to rejigger the offense but only slightly. I would like to see Michael Bradley play more of an attacking role in the central midfield. And start Wondolowski, who has demonstrated a knack for getting free in the 18-yard box and the skills to know what to do with the ball.
It was a welcomed three points, and if they play with confidence they can get points out of the Portugal game. (Perhaps not Germany.) But four points might be enough to see them through, with Ghana and Portugal having lost their openers.
Mexican goalie came up big time with those saves.
Bye bye Spain
After today it could be ta-ta, England as well.
The red card Song got for Cameroon was probably the dumbest I've seen. Cost them the match IMHO

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

Yes, it's just been great matches save for I think two so far.
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
Nice goal U.S.A
