    I am very anxious about World Cup...

    I think that England is a better team than USA. But after the Confederation Cup I have to say that the USA Team is very organized and could be a Tough Team.

    GO BRAZIL!!!!

    The start of the SOCCER Worldchampionship is here again.

    Hometeam South Africa got a 1:1 versus strong Mexican Team.


    Now I wish Uruguay the Top over France !



    Be on one side at every game and you love it


    USA - England surprise, surprise will be 2:1 in favor of the States !

    Podolski -Poland
    Gomez - Mexico
    Cacao - Brazil
    Chedira - Tunesia
    Özil - Turkey

    betrayal

    referees stop USA and Germany



    The official in the game US vs. Slovenia doesn't give
    the american boys a regular goal for a 3:2 win.

    and an other official took out nine yellow cards for fouls,
    noone else would have given, Germany has to play 60 minutes
    with 10 players and lost 0:1 to Serbia.


    Good news: Both teams can enter the final 16 playoffs
    with a win next week !

    The US should have never allowed 2 goals in the first half to Slovenia.

    Great to see some of u guys are following the WC. Where is ´Master of Puppets´?, best performance and most enjoyable was Mexico´s defeat of France!.

    Argentina are the pick of the bunch so far but with Maradona as manager the wheels could fall off real quick. So many teams have a chance. Apart from England of course!!. Only kidding lads but jaysus yee were shite against Algeria. Joe Cole needs to play and Heskey needs to be removed from all football pitches as a matter of urgency.

    I still fancy Spain or Holland to do it.

    Im going for broke here and I dont know what way the 2nd round draw and beyond works out. But a New Zealand versus USA is looking a distinct possibility at this stage. With Brazil and Holland scrapping it out for the bronze medal.

    Funny...was on client site at DoD today and they usually have the set in the office tuned to one of the news networks. Instead, they had the game on Univision (ESPN is verboten for some reason) and the office went absolutely nuts when Donovan scored the goal.

    The Cardiac Kids are going to be fun to watch, because they never think the game is out of reach.

    If we get by Ghana, I like our chances of getting into the semi's. But the boys need to approach each game with the same type of desperation that we saw in yesterdays win.

    Current Vegas Odds that the USA wins the World Cup and the Chargers win the SB is 1,000,000,000 to 1.
