Ugh, the England-USA game starts at 2:30p.mEST and my daughter has to be dropped off at a pool party at 3:00p.m.:wall:

The French are a mess. They have WAY too much talent to play as poorly as they did. Their idiot coach...
What happened between Domenech and Henry? How come Henry's not the captain of the team? :huh:

To be honest, he seems to have been out of form for a while. He lost his starting job in Barcelona, and that has impacted his play IMO . As indicative of his play, it's very likely Thierry will be signing with the New York Red Bulls of MLS next month after the WC is over. If he was in good form, that would NEVER happen.

But, to be honest, it's partly personal too. Evidently Thierry questioned Domenech's coaching last fall in front of the team after Domenech essentially questioned the teams heart. Thus Patrice Evra gets the Captain's armband. Add in the fact that the Frenchies got into the WC on a questionable play (wink, wink), and you can bet that there's a fair amount of tension on Les Bleus. And the fact that everyone knows that Domenech is gone no matter what after the WC, he's got no reason to build relationships with anyone, especially people he doesn't like.

South Korea beats Greece 2-0. Not a big surprise. Good game by the Koreans.

One of the commentators for Colombian TV is Argentinian; he's very, very partisan. The others love to make fun of him; this should be a blast :EVILLE:

Argentina's players don't sing the national anthem because the part played is the opening that doesn't have any lyrics.

Maradona looks like he swallowed Artur Dmitriev; but that's nothing new. That mustache :yikes:

:rofl:

I read that he menaced, I mean promised, to pull off a Lady Godiva act if Argentina wins. In behalf of Argentinians I hope in that case they´ll keep windows closed and celebrate home :P

Oh yes, I think it's in the public interest to root against Argentina :saint:

In reality, I love the way Argentina plays, but that makes my soul die inside, the thought of liking them...so very conflicted.

Messi keeps giving Higuain easy putaways and he keeps missing it :rolleyes:

Final score 1-0 Argentina.
Argentina was a bit lucky that the Nigerians didn't score; but Nigeria's keeper did a fantastic job - it could've been a much higher score than that.

I love World Cup!!! Saw every match so far enjoyed the Korea-Greece match the most. I was rooting for Messi SO HARD in the Argentina - Nigera game but he couldn't put in any goals :(

Gonna get coffee and wait for USA-England game which starts at 2:30AM here..... -_-


I love Winter Olympics - FIFA WC year!

ITA, Nigerian keeper was amazing and Messi did really well even if he couldn´t score. An entertaining match.

I know Argentina World qualification wasn´t precisely impressive but they have so much talent and they usually give their best in their big competition, that for me they´re big favorites. And so I think about Italy, they´re just now in a weak moment, and it seems people are not counting with them but they are so experienced and used to win matches in a any way that I think they shouldn´t be discarded at all.
