This is the direct YouTube link - I was at the commentary! (But he did tell it like it is...)

Did he ever! If Mexico plays New Zealand like they played CR last night then NZ has a very good chance of going to Brazil next year.

Thanks for the links! There was a bit on CNN showing Mexico fans chanting "USA! USA!" and "God Bless America!". Hehehe here is what the headlines in Mexican papers looks like.

FIFA apparently changed the rules on how teams are seeded in the WC last month. Now the seedings are based on FIFA's ranking alone which according to this article could possibly see some of the top teams facing each other in the first round. We shall have to wait and see.

Here are the top seeds for next year's World Cup:

Somebody decided to have some fun at the US expense and tried to figure out the different groupings the US might be part off. This commentator thinks it is a distinct possibility that the US may finish the 2014 WC without even a single point. I beg to differ but then again it isn't hard to find people who know more than me so we will have to wait and see. In the meantime the article below makes entertaining reading.

Uruguay still have to qualify however - though they are the favourites against Jordan

Lovely goals by Arsenal against Norwich! Shame the match was online-only, suspect NBC should have shown it instead of United (sorry Buzz).

As an Arsenal fan, I agree Lara! At least we now have the option of choosing which match to follow, plus you can switch if your original choice is dull. There were so many highlights in that match, but my favorite moment was Ramsey's Maradona followed by back heel pass.

I only actually got to see the first half of the game because the station lost the feed for the 2nd half. Meanwhile in the Bundesliga there is a bit of an uproar over a "ghost goal". Leverkusen scored after someone headed the ball at the goal and it passed through a hole in the side of the net. I have never heard of thus before.

Some big money Indian investors are busy setting up a Super League Football tournament modelled after their Premier League Cricket tournament. They have signed some big names from the past and are hoping to start it up early next year. The idea has met with mixed reaction from Indian fans because some would like a lot more invested in the local game. But others think it is a good start. We shall see. India in so many ways is one of the last countries to be conquered by football so it would be nice to see any kind of progress.

Is India big on any sport besides cricket I wonder?
10-23-2013, 12:24 AM
The answer to that I am afraid is nope. But these investors seems to think there is room for a 2nd sport. The problem is some critics believe it is all going to be about the spectacle rather than the sport of football itself and therefore do little to further the game in India. But I am very curious and maybe just maybe it is a step in the right direction.
