:encore:Well done both England and US - disappointed England couldn't get more goals to finish first in the group but we're through. The question is who will win group D?

The Algerians played an incredibly dirty game (or second half at least)! Glad the U.S. was able to rise above it and pull off a clutch win! :cheer2:

I knew something exciting had happened, because I just heard a huge cheer from the cafe a block away that's been showing the World Cup. My windows aren't even open! :P

I heard a cheer from the lounge/snack area at my office.

Awww... Good for USA but I was supporting Slovenia, my dad's adopted country or which I have a poor spot. Bummed Slovenia didn't go through.
ETA: Awesome last minute goal by Donovan :)

LOL! (I'll assume this doesn't occur when anyone wins a figure skating gold medal.)

I believe that Braulio had a typo there. I think we get [likely] Ghana or Germany. (Maybe Serbia?)

What in the world is wrong with the French team? The BBC reporter implied that there is a racial undercurrent to the conflict between the players and TPTB in French football.

Not necessarily true. The USA could play any of the four teams in Group D. It will play the second place team in Group D.

The table currently is

1. Ghana 4 pts, +1 GD
2. Germany 3 pts, +3 GD
3. Serbia 3 pts 0 GD
4. Australia 1 pt, -4 GD

Ghana plays Germany and Serbia plays Australia.

Ghana definiely advances with a win or tie. It wins the group if it wins. It wins the group if it ties and Serbia ties Australia.

Germany definitely advances with a win. It almost certainly wins the group if it wins, because Serbia would have to beat Australia by more than 4 goals to even possibly beat Germany on goal differential. Germany can advance with a tie, but only if Australia beats Serbia.

Serbia definitely advances with a win. It wins the group if it wins and Ghana and Germany tie. It also goes through on a tie if Ghana beats Germany.

Australia can only go through if Germany beats Ghana and it crushes Serbia, scoring enough goals to make up the goal differential on Ghana. Highly unlikely.

For the US to avoid playing Germany, it either has to hope that Germany beats Ghana or crashes out altogether. It really would suck to win the group and get Germany as the reward.

Thanks reckless, jumping to conclusions already, here on my end...

...so (at least for the next day or so) Deutschland vor! :cheer2: ;)

Not that, say, Ghana would be that much less challenging. :shuffle:
