I'd say that overall England were much, much better than the previous outings, and duly deserved their victory. It was a much more attacking performance, with Rooney much more involved, with quality service from the right with Milner on a number of occasions.

Kudos also goes to the USA, who not only managed to get a win in the dying embers of the game, but also won the group. That means you will get the runners-up to the Serbia, Ghana, Germany, Australia group.

I was trembling, Slovenia really gave it a go in the last 5-10 minutes. Gotta say, even though I do slate him, Upson made a wonderful challenge with 2 minutes to go, Brilliant.

I gotta say that it was quite pathetic to see England waste so much time in the last five minutes. They just went for the corners trying to hold the ball as long as they can, provoking fouls, corners and throw-ins so they can steal a few more seconds. Also I have never seen anyone take a corner kick that slowly.

Anyway, I'm very glad the USA made a goal in the last minute. Like I said before, I think they were the best team in this group and the only team that deserved the second round in my opinion. It's also good they are now group winners and not the Brits. Hopefully we'll get Germany - England in round 2.

Have have been 2-0 USA. It's amazing the USA is still in it with the refs out to fuck them over at every turn. Taking away goals, letting our players get elbowed in the face to the point they are gushing blood with no call.

Christ it's like the shitty plot of a sports film has to follow our team everywhere and we can't win or tie a game at this World Cup without it reaching the point of hair-pulling tension. At least we deservedly get to top the group and earn what's most likely a free pass to avoid Germany in the next round. Good game on England too, maybe we'll get to see each other again in the final round.

Your right, they should have just thrown any caution to the wind and played with joyful and gay abandon carefree and unworried about any negative repercussions like the possible loss of the game and failure to go through. Playing safe is completely obserd, sickening, ridicolous, unheard of and 'pathetic' as you say.

That was offside. It definitely was offside.

You were cheated out your last match but that offside in this match was a certain offside.

Yes common sense is really pathetic this is probably your first time ever watching football isnt it? The stakes are too high why the fuck risk getting attacked on the break when we have a lead? Also Britain wasn't playing England was, i have no idea why that is so hard to grasp and if you get Germany they will fucking stomp you.

Man the US really really deserved that win. They had so many chances that it just would have been devastating if they had not won. And don't even get me started on the fact that we got another goal taken away from us by a bad call.

Overall, the referee today was competent and made many difficult and correct calls. A couple of mess ups are expected when you don't have a 3D animation to show you if a guy is off sides like ESPN has. I've been in some rough games in high school and you'd be surprised how much you can get away with when the ref isn't paying attention. At least they got a reason for the whistle this time.

For the past two days some Brazilian fan came to my youtube channel and starts trolling me. Granted it started when I replied to his anti-U.S. comment by stating that his comment is a joke. But then he came in and let's just say it's something even a Red Sox fan would think it's pathetic.

Anyway I did post to his channel and he deleted it, I kept his on my channel (partly because I like having comments on my channel so I marked it as spam instead).

Those kind of strategies are generally used a lot by teams such as Greece, Algeria, Slovakia and other countries of which you wonder how they made it to the WC in the first place ;)

Obviously it was the most clever thing to do in their situation, but the fact that England reverts to such tactics against fucking Slovenia is a bit embarrassing in my opinion.

Yes common sense is really pathetic

"Common sense" is "let's score another goal to secure this win."
It's not too hard to have some players at the back that can stop a counter attack.

Also Britain wasn't playing England was, i have no idea why that is so hard to grasp and if you get Germany they will fucking stomp you.

England is part of Britain, so what's wrong with saying "the brits" when talking about England?

Also, I'm really hoping for Germany - England next round. Nothing better than a win against England, really. :P

Regardless of whether or not keeping the ball in the corner was an act of 'genius' on strategic grounds, it was still stupid to watch. Maybe it's because I watch England games with my snark ability turned up, so I'm less interested in that side of things. I'm seriously out of national anthem jokes right now, geez.

I'll go with the Americans really deserving of the no.1 spot (lol at Clinton's 'reaction' to Dempsey's offside in the Algeria game). Now, take the evening off, crack the booze out and enjoy the Group D deciders...

Second round should be even more interesting :D

It's pretty fucking stupid that they don't use video refereeing like in hockey. It would take like 15 second to see if there was a foul or offside. I have no idea why they don't do that, maybe it's because they're trying to uphold some stupid tradition.

And for the record the world cup isnt the only time people play you shoulder muncher this happens all the time in the Premier league week in week out oh i forgot you dont know fuck all about football dont act like you know anything about football little boy

But fair enough really, and not pathetic. More important to get through than to worry about looking good and not being embarrassing.

Well since scoring a goal is harder than just keeping it away from the opposition, risky in terms of losing posession and reasonably unlikely I wouldn't say it is 'common sense'. I mean whichever they did would be fair enough really.

It's not too hard to have some players at the back that can stop a counter attack.

Why risk it though? There's still a chance they will score, whereas there isn't if they are kept from posession.

England is part of Britain, so what's wrong with saying "the brits" when talking about England?

Well it just doesn't take into account how different the peoples of the different countries of Britain are.

Yeah, kinda like how the japanese still kills whales and part of the reason was to "uphold their tradition" and they're practically the only one still hunting whales. Granted comparing whale hunting to lack of video refereeing was kind of dumb but you get what I mean.

Not long ago I wrote this. Kind of grinding a horse's bones for dessert but yeah.

Now the second stage is underway, it's going to be even tougher so who knows...
