I will say this. I hate seeing all chalk advancing.
trust me mate, it brings people together like nothing I've ever seen, the whole culture of it, the banter, the allegiance, the camaraderie... The big moments in big games are something that people never forget.
The whole culture around football is, in my bias opinion, unique compared to other sports.
reading around the net, and surprised by the amount of respect given to the US team. still sad to lose after the way Tim Howard played.
There's no other sport like football, even if FIFA has bad reputation in some aspects. Still the only sport to hold a world event every four years (hope this never changes, it's the same amazing experience the Olympic Games bring too if you like overall sports), that draws so much attention, in a world more and more dominated by constant changes and money opportunities. I was against the realization of the World Cup and Olympics here in Brazil, but when the first game started all I could do was just sit and watch. And to my disbelief a lot of goals happened and it's probably the best WC I've ever watched.
Cannavaro is in a TV show here in Brazil with other players (Matthaus and Carlos Alberto Torres included) who've won the WC. In his opinion the group stage was not so good - a good Italian defender will always love defense.
For those who like some skills, great Brazilian players started playing futsal, this one stayed outside the fields to become the greatest ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-SbpY2MpCM
2:25 speaks for itself.
Congrats to our Belgian red devils! They played a great game. It was a real pleasure to finally see them step up in this WC.
Kudos to the USA team as well. They fought until the very last second and I have nothing but respect for that!
Belgium/U.S. game was kind of a repeat of the Germany/Algeria game. Heated up in extra time and ended up with same score. Despite loss, good showing by the U.S.
Brilliant game! Well done USA. This world cup is pretty awesome! France 98 is the first one i watched and remember so i can definitely say that this one is the best so far! Shame that 2 teams i supported were the worst ones(Russian and England)!
I want Germany vs Holland final, or someone like Columbia or Belgium if not those 2!
Belgium - USA - what a pitty!
i want Ger - Col and Ned - Bel semis, then Ger-Ned final
Well the 2-1 Loss the US Suffered is the reason why they needed Donavon (Sp?) even though he couldn't run and keep up for the long haul that is Soccer/Football he could have played as a backup player and played towards the 2nd half for like 30-40mins or so.
The games were great yesterday even though the US didn't win, I think that Howard played really well during the game.
that is a frikkin demon
Well he surely did most saves ever in a world cup game.
Great play though a pity the US got beaten. The Belgians did really well
Such a good game! Wonder who will win ;D
France will do them. Germany back 4 + keeper are suspect.
Germany playing better so far.
Lets see what happens in the 2nd half.
