    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Spanish team struggling on defense. After going down 0-1 to Japan, they almost got caught again. And, while I love seeing my bf on the attack, he's really not a pure forward, so I'm not sure this is the best strategy...And Jordi Alba gets a yellow card now.

    ETA Inigo Martinez gets sent off on a red card (not quite deserved, but a yellow and the free kick for Japan were). U23 Rojitos are

    London 2012: Wales' Joe Allen listed as English by Team GB

    Olympic organisers are facing another embarrassing gaffe after describing Welsh midfielder Joe Allen as English in the official Team GB programme.

    Allen, 22, is set to feature for Great Britain on Thursday in their opening match against Senegal at Old Trafford.

    The mistake follows the humiliating episode at Hampden Park when the South Korea flag was shown next to North Korea's women footballers.

    Games organisers Locog have been asked for a response to the latest blunder.

    Allen, a fluent Welsh speaker from Pembrokeshire, is one of five Welshman selected in the men's football squad. But under the title 'Nationality' in the official programme, the Swansea City midfielder is listed as English.

    Compatriots Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy, Aaron Ramsey and Neil Taylor have all correctly been identified as Welsh in the official programme.

    It was a well-deserved win for them. Nagai (their No 11) played very well. After reading up on last man fouls, I guess the red card for Martinez was deserved after all. Hopefully, Spain can play better against Honduras.

    The Finnish commentators are obviously unimpressed by the GBR - Senegal match and are therefore snarking things like "The player could pull his pants a bit higher up" to pass the time.
    Rockin' Finnish commentator: "And that was supposed to be a flip but it turned out to be a flop."

    Bah we lose men's football as well. Not that it isn't a surprise but still I'd like at least one win from either team before these Olympics are over.

    Yay bring on Opening Ceremony and Day One ^_^

    Was hoping Egypt could pull back and tie it up at the end against Brazil. Regardless they played an excellent game from what I saw. I like that the players mentioned beforehand that while there's so much that's going on in their country right now, they want to show that they've still got a good soccer team. I visited Egypt back in 2008 and the Egyptians were the nicest people I've ever met. Can't help but to cheer for them here!
