It seems the USA does not know how to win football matches unless they are 0-1 or 0-2 down, so this seems to be going according to plan. :P

Ghana is better so far though. It seems USA is still looking for their game.

Of course the only one we've won so far this world cup is the only one where we didn't get down.


Can someone explain why they have to wear the FIFA bibs when they aren't on the field?

So the officials aren't confused about which players are substitutes and which are playing :) At least, that's what I've always understood.

Where did they get that referee from? :eek: The Ghana can do whatever they want and don't get any yellow cards but the US do get them almost before the foul was even played? I must be missing something about the definition of fair ... :confused:

And I just love my dad (an ex-referee) wanting to jump at the referee's throat :D

Penalty kick for the USA. Apparently the first penalty kick for the USA in 60 years. :lol:

Donovan - OMG, I am nervous!
He SCORES!!!!! 1-1 :cheer2:

I don't like extra-time. Football matches are long enough as they are.

NOOOO - Ghana scores! :(

It's time for the comeback kids to do it again, now.

Ghana scores in extra time. That's a bit of a DeMerit for the US. :shuffle:

It's never over till it's over, but still : doesn't look to me that US will be able to score again in such a short time... :(

:confused: Ghana has a pair of players with dual yellow cards, there was a penalty shot, and most of the tackles involved the defender touching the ball before making contact with the American forward. Exactly what is the bias?

4 minutes to go. This is not going the USA's way. :( They are so so tired.

My gosh, I feel for both teams. I don't understand the need for two fifteen min. periods if a goal was scored in the first fifteen min. period. Just seems to do a disservice to the team that goes on. Good game, though.

Nice fight USA, :respec: :( but it was Ghana all the way.
Hopefully next WC, US will make it even further, just like in ice dancing. ;)

Congrats to Ghana - nice to see an African team go through, but sad it's as the expense of the US :(

At least Fox News will be happy. ;)
