Xabi Alonso :swoon:
The USA coverage had a nice long close-up of his brown eyes right before his PK that went in but was then done-over. :drama:

Villa is nice to look at too...:D

I don't know if I would say that it was good for us. :shuffle: I still don't like to see the German flags everywhere.
But then I have an issue with national pride per se because I associate it with saying: We are the best. Other countries are inferior.

I know what you mean, I felt that way when people started hanging flags on the windows for Euro 2004 here in Portugal, I thought it was extremely rude as a host nation, not to mention that with all the problems this country has I find that sort of display of national pride quite ridiculous... what about helping your neighbour? No, hanging a flag makes you a better portuguese...:rolleyes:

The Spain- Paraguay match sucked :duh:

I wonder if Maradona can recognize Müller now? :EVILLE: It's too bad he will be out for the next game :( , this boy is just great :swoon: .
I don't know who in the german technical team is pulling this miracle, but bless him :respec:
Kudos to Mertesacker for taking a ball in the face like nothing happened and to Klose for being so close to Ronaldo's record.

I missed Fernando Llorente (http://www.juegalaroja.com/media/galeria/199/1/3/2/6/n_seleccion_espanola_fernando_llorente-26231.jpg) today

For those interested: Sara Carbonero (http://losmejorestop10.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/saracarbonero.jpg), Casillas´girlfriend, whose presence in the World Cup, interviewing Spanish players after matches (Casillas included), has created a great discussion in Spanish press, even with "machista" accusation to the President of Spanish Press Association.

I was reading the stats on the Argentina-Germany game and was astounded to find that Argentina had 61% of the possession. Just goes to show it is nothing to do with how often you get the ball - it's what you do with it. This was proven in the Spain-Paraguay match where Spain had 62% of the possession but only managed the one goal.

Germany are very good on the counter-attack - they scored at least two of their goals against both England and Argentina on that basis - so it would be interesting to see how they react if they go behind to Spain - there would be no 4 goal rout then I suspect.

Looking forwards to the 2 semis - I reckon Netherlands will beat Uraguay but am unsure of the Germany-Spain game - it depends on who scores first I think. I would actually like to see the Dutch win the WC as I think they deserve their first WC win - I remember when they lost to Germany way back in 1974 - I really wanted them to win that one. (Also Jack Taylor was the ref - a British ref from Wolverhampton - my home town - who awarded the Dutch a penalty before the Germans even touched the ball - an intense game I recall)

Statistics are all for Germany in winning the world cup. First there's that 54, 74, 90, 2010 and then, apparently, Germany was in the semi-finals in 66 (which I believe is the year they were second?), in 70 and 74 - 74 the year they won. Same thing again in 82, 86 and 90. Don't know where they placed in 82. However, they were in the semi finals in 2002 and placed second, then 06 and now again 10.
It will definitely be an interesting game. The Germans are enjoying playing soccer, they said so repeatedly on interviews; Lahm said today that they just had so much fun out there. They've got nothing to lose.

But I actually came back to the thread because this was discussed earlier; it's 3 a.m. in the morning and I'm living at the very city limits of Berlin and there were a few fans coming home, singing. They're absolutely ecstatic that Germany beat Argentina and I have a feeling that even if they don't win any more games, that they beat Argentina the way they did will almost make up for it ;)

So, yeah, we Germans have what other people call issues with national pride and we think that other countries are very nationalistic. :lol: It is all a matter of how you grew up as one can see again and again. ;)

Hey, I'm just quoting her here ;)

Guess who's a daddy? :eek: From C. Ronaldo's twitter:
(http://twitter.com/Cristiano)

It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy. As agreed with the baby's mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship. No further information will be provided on this subject and I request everyone to fully respect my right to privacy (and that of the child) at least on issues as personal as these are.

Well at least he's taking responsibility for the little one (although for all we know it could have been planned.) Hopefully if the rumors about his utter partying ways are true that he'll settle down a bit for the little boy's sake. Oh I know he will have nannies but children need more than nannies.

I am gutted because all my favourite teams are out of the competition so who do I cheer for now?! LOL I know they are going to beaten up by the Dutch but I will still route for Uruguay to reach the final. There was a bunch of German fans driving up and down the streets here waving German flags and honking their horns. Although I would have preferred it to be the Argentine fans celebrating, I find such spontanious celebrations charming. :)

^Please God, no! Anyone BUT Uruguay.

I'm rooting for a Netherlands/Germany final; I don't mind who wins then.
