Come on SA, what sort of goal was that to give away? Defence was a complete mess there, now short of a very dramatic last 20 minutes it looks like they may be on their way out of this tournament.

Either this was meant ironicaly and I missed it, or you're just not watching the right game. :P

Also: Shit! France scored a goal! >:(

Crap, cranky siblings have overtaken my television. Who scored for France? Are they playing better, or was it a fluke? Did the goal give 'em some juice?

It's good to see South-Africa is winning this match. They deserve a win in this tournament, even though it won't put them in the next round.

Also, France really embarrassed themselves this WC. Not only by their very poor performance, but also by their behavior. If they keep playing with an attitude like this I bet they won't even qualify for the EC in 2012.

And there it goes. Feel sorry for South Africa, but I don't feel sorry at all for France.

Good-bye, Domenech. And good riddance.

Tshabalala! You should've scored lad, final minute! Argh.

France weren't particularly improved by the goal, South Africa just lost pace really as they have done in previous games. So many chances though, they'll be disappointed. I hope the South Africans remain brilliant at the games though. A victory against France (albeit a bad French side) is still an achievement when you compare to the predictions people were making about SA beforehand.

Final score, 2-1. Uruguay and Mexico go through. Domenech looked as though he was going to go on a killing spree, and the South Africa coach was holding him back as Domenech listed his targets. Good luck to Blanc. France will need some new blood soon I think.

Sweet lord, I had no idea. I only saw the SA coach holding his arm in a playcating gesture, as Domenech ranted on about something and was held back by the shrit and jacket from someone else behind.

What a COLOSSAL prick. Way to go out without a LICK of class, man.

Oh so that was what's up. Our reporter didn't know, he thought they were just discussing something.

That's kinda stupid though. You know people are gonna think you are prick for not shaking hands after the match and there wasn't any good reason not to do it (like if SA won unfairly).

I don't feel sorry for France either. I'm glad that they didn't win any match because they didn't deserve to be in the WC in the first place. I was watching Uruguay - Mexico, and I wasn't expecting Uruguay to win, but we did it anyway. Go Uruguay! :D

I can't see that happening :p

I think Argentina will lay back though. I doubt they're gonna go for another huge victory, unless things are going easy. I assume they don't wanna lose either, so I'm betting for a 1-0 or 2-0 victory for Argentina.

I'm not holding my breath tomorrow for the England vs. Slovenia match. The only time England were convincing IMO was the brief period that resulted in that first goal against USA. The match against Algeria was a waste of 90 minutes of my life.

Hopefully England will manage to pull it out of the bag tomorrow, but like I said, I'm not holding my breath. Any other England supporters have any comments?

I'm settling in to watch Greece vs. Argentina now.

Oh my God! Goal for Nigeria!

With the current standings, Greece is gonna pass this group. That would be such a shame in my opinion, but I assume Argentina is gonna win this match. And if that happens, it is suddenly not unlikely that Nigeria passes this group :o

South-Korea just equalized meaning that SK is currently through to the next round.

Funny goal by the way. He tried to head the ball first, but as it went by him he stuck out his foot in a reflex and shot it right into the side-net.

I so want Greece out of the tournament, that defensive style of playing (6 in the back?!) is making this game dull. If I wasn't rooting for Argentina I would definitely watch the SK v Nigeria game which is probably ten times more exciting than watching Argentina TRYING to make it past the defense and then past the goalie, which by the way is doing a very good job.

I must say I have a real soft spot for this Korean team, they play fantastic passing football and just run and run and run- no wonder Alex Ferguson rates Park so highly. They were the darlings of the 2002 tournament and I feel they are a much better side now and deserve to make it to the last 16.

Greece on the other hand are as bad as Switzerland... boring!

Agreed, this Greek defense just makes the game boring. They have so many in the backfield that Argentina is forced to just knock the ball around at midfield and hope for a hole to open up. It's very slow to watch. I thought Argentina was simply playing very laid back until I realized that there wasn't really much they could do against the million guys in Greece's backfield. Also, the Greek keeper is the reason they're still in this game. He's been lights-out.

I agree it's been a boring match so far. I guess that's what you with one very defensive side and one side that does not have to score. I wonder what the Greeks are waiting for though. They only got 30 minutes left and if they don't take action they're gonna be out for sure.

Not that I care, because I hope S-Korea passes.

Were these your predictions prior to when the WC started? Because right now you got a lot of unusual picks there.

Yes, obviously they were prediction before the WC started because at first they all seemed like good picks except Denmark (I picked them for a joke) but now I'm ashamed of these choices.

But to the rest talking about my England pick:
SHUT THE FUCK UP would you booo your home country just because they suck? Wow you guys must be pretty fucked up then. And the Portugal pick, all my friends are from there and it it weren't for brazil being in there group they'd have more finals appeareances.
So what I'm saying is fuck off I'm cheering for my home country.

Gonna need a lot of help with that one.

Also, finally Argentina gets a goal. After all of those corner kicks they've had, it's about time they got one. Now I just have to hope South Korea holds out in their game.
