Yeah England won't win. In fact they're in danger of not making it past the group stage.

It's amazing that such a stacked lineup couldn't produce more goals. It seemed like the only person taking chances at the goal was David Villa and the rest were just dancing around in the box.

I think Honduras made a good game. Sure, they didn't create any scoring chances whatsoever, but they played a pretty good defence most of the time and sometimes they also had some nice scenes in the offence but Spain just was about out of their league.

Honduras did play very well defensively. All of the extremely biased commentators from the USA were shocked that Spain didn't score more and kept bad-talking Honduras even though they played very well defensively. I truly think the Honduran team should be very proud of the way they played today and of their refusal to give up.

I wish I didn't giggle slightly at Molotov's post.

Also, I die slowly as British tabloids are used to encapsulate a British identity.

Not just that one putrid Sun bit, generally.

Because I'm White and middle-class, and thus can afford to die slowly on such selfish accounts.

But anyway, please, football. Spain should've done much better with Honduras, as well as the latter side defended for the most part. As already said, passing and 'skill' is one thing, but if this group ends up being ultimately decided by goal difference, we may just have a major upset on our hands. Unlikely maybe, but still. I really hope Chile make it through. Despite the scorelines, they've been another genuine attacking team. While not wishing any ill will towards Spain, Spain-Brazil would be mighty interesting...

I hope the US at least beats Algeria on Wednesday and goes on to the next round of matches. Though I wouldn't bet money on them making it much further. Nevertheless, GO USA!.

They better advance. So far all of my predictions between my buddies and I i've predicted right. I said they would make it to final 8 but lose there. We're better this year than we have been in a while but there is still no way we can take on those top world class teams.

Ok i may be american but i'm sick of hearing people bitch about the botched call that happened,hey don't you all realize we also had a break against that foolish english goalie that should have ended up as a loss to the U.S,i'd say it's Just Desserts and the U.S can just put all this bickering behind them by just getting a win against the worst team in the group in Algeria,if they can't beat them they don't even deserve to move on to the 2nd round

Also it could be worse U.S & England,we could be this.

I just heard this funny bit on the radio on the way home from work. Apparently, King Jong Il hired Chinese actors to go the games and pretend to be North Korean fans so that they could have support. I thought that was really funny

Yes, there are no fans from North Korea because the people aren't allowed to travel. Instead there where some chinese people cheering for North Korea.

Maybe the players hired some actors as well who acted as the North Korean national team? ^^

Yeah, I think Ivory Coast has no chance of advancing. They have to rely on Brazil to win at least 3-0 against Portugal while they win HIGH against North Korea... I just don't see that happening. Brazil - Portugal will propably end 0-0 or 1-1. :/

Second phase of the first round is over, thankfully we saw plenty of goals this time around, including a 7-0 massacre from Portugal against North Korea.

Again, no CONMEBOL team lost in this phase, and thus, being the leaders of their respective groups.

Next game: Group A

Mexico vs Uruguay, and France vs South Africa.

Either Mexico and Uruguay can afford to lose or draw their game and still pass to the next round (by goal difference), however, second place will, most likely, get Argentina in the roudn of 16. So I expect a really awesome match from these two tomorrow.

My prediction: Mexico 2- Uruguay 0
France- 0 South Africa 1

Mexico and Uruguay advance to the second round.

Yeah, I heard that as well..that's fucking PATHETIC...
Why can't they allow their fans to watch their national team play?
Also, Ke Nako means "it's time".
Ah, and one last bit of info: today, as you know, there is the Greece vs Argentina match..before their match with Nigeria, 35% of Greeks thought that their team was going to win..after the match, 60% think that they're going to win, 35% believe in a draw and only 5% think that they'll lose.
Optimism FTW.

Indeed, I doubt either of these two want to face Argentina next. So I expect they will both play for the win, although Uruguay is alright with a draw obviously.

France is 4 goals behind at the moment in goal difference and with that riot in their group I can only imagine their drama is getting worse with a loss to South-Africa today. I heard there was a lot of arrogance within the group as players playing at English clubs think they are better than the ones playing in France. I don't know, if I was France next coach I'd throw half of the team out for the next EC.

I dunno, but I'm starting to hate the little bastard for some reason.

Also: Portughese players were dicks, man. You could see the sheer panic the North Korean players had gone into, around the 4 - 0. Portugal just kept going at it, like bullies on the pitch, scoring and laughing their asses off.

And don't tell me about "points" or "scoring deferentials". The SECOND they interviewed Ronaldo, he said "We did it 'cause it was fun."

First thing's first: I still don't support my own team (Portugal) because i believe we don't deserve to be in this WC. I hate our "manager", most of the players are too young and there are too many nationalized Brazilians for my taste.

No mercy for the weak, tears taste best when they belong to your opponent. Bwahahahaha.

But yes, it does come in very, very handy to have a huge goal differential during a group stage. Example, if PT ties with BR, the Ivory Coast will have to win against North Korea by a difference of TEN GOALS in order to beat Portugal to the second place spot.

Analysing the goalfest, all i can say is "lrn2Jabulani". Notice that Portugal, aside from Germany, were the first teams to finally attempt some consistent wing-play, bringing the ball up the sideline and crossing the ball. Other teams seem to fear doing this because the Jabulani is "too light" and they miss their crosses by far (instead of by near). Same goes with long range shooting: most teams fear doing this because the Jabulani is "too light" and because it doesn't have stitches, it just keeps on accelerating and gaining altitude until well after it's passed the goal line, meaning players shoot over the bar most of the time. "Featherfooting" the ball makes for very precise play and more teams need to do it. Portugal, along with a few other national teams, have a bit of an advantage since we've been using the Jabulani's ancestors for years now. Ever since the adidas Teamgeist, the Portuguese League has asked adidas to make us a new ball every year, so the Jabulani isn't very surprising to us. It's just a sort of 5th generation Teamgeist, where we've used all 4 previous generations before this one.

The only other time Portugal and North Korea played against each other was in 1966. You will be very surprised at what happened.

Also, to hammer my point about the Jabulani in, notice goal 2 (Simão's goal) in this video comes from a LONG pass at 1:35 which hits its target perfectly. From there, it's all up to the confusion and chaos that a striker should feel most at home in.
Goal 3, a cross coming in from the side of the box, again, hits its target perfectly. Not too high, not too fast, it's like a laser-guided cross to Hugo Almeida's head.
Goal 4, Tiago shoots it low, and not too strong, almost like a pass to the goal. At this point it had been raining so hard for so long that the ball was too slick to handle by the goalie.

At 6:15 you'll see Eusébio giving a thumbs-up to Ronaldo's comedic goal. Yes, that's the same Eusébio who scored 4 consecutive goals againt North Korea in 1966.

And the last goal is, again, a perfectly aimed and powered cross to Tiago's head. It can be done.

Lrn2Jabulani.
