I'm very happy for both wins, England should have put more pressure towards the end but a win is a win. Didn't see the USA match but it is amazing how bad they want this, I sure hope they at leats make it to the quarter finals.

Good luck to all. Now let's just hope and pray Germany loses....

Watched both matches at the same time, switching between one another as soon as there was a replay or a boring moment..
US-Alg was pretty interesting, and the US got some well-deserved 3 points after getting lucky with England and being extremely unlucky with Slovenia..
The other match was not as good, and England still failed to prove that they deserved to pass...
As for the next matches, I'm watching Ghana-Germany...it's almost guaranteed to be an epic match.

Definitely. Ghana is definitely not a team to be underestimated and Germany had been surprisingly weak in my opinion. I'm praying for a German loss and Serbia pulling through in their game. Regardless of the results, the two games should be very fun to watch.

Amazing goal from Donovan. Give it a couple of weeks, and US sports fans might forget it, but it's clearly one of the best moments in US soccer history.

thing is though rooney is actually amazing, but he doesn't show it when he plays for england, if he played the same way he did for man u he would be a beast!

Players go through good phases and bad phases. His body doesn't seem to be responding so well at the moment.

Is that a serious question?
Well, for me there's "Great Britain", which consits of England, Scotland and Wales (and Northern Ireland is somehow connected to this as well). For me the term "brits" describes the people of Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Yes but its England's team. Not the team of Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. By your logic you could say that Europe denotes the countries in Europe and therefore England and you could start calling England Europe. It's in Europe but isn't Europe, just like its in Britain but isn't Britain.

As I said, there's a difference between "Europe" and "Great Britain". Especially since there's only one team from "Great Britain" that plays at this years WC.
But I don't want to get tangled up in a silly argument here, so I guess we should just leave it at that.

Which wouldn't be too wrong in my opinion.

Eh? There are lots of polish people in Germany
I was making a snide joke about the invasion of Poland in World War II. :-P

I know, but "mentioning the war" over and over again doesn't get any funnier the more often you do it. :P
I can already imagine the headlines of englands/british yellow press if Germany should lose against England or Ghana... I would bet 1.000 Pounds there's at least one headline with a WW II reference. But I have no one to bet against, as I would win it for sure. ^^

But saying its the Brits team uncomprimisingly implies that its a team with players from all over Britain, when in fact there aren't Scottish or Welsh players. So technically your wrong.

But I don't want to get tangled up in a silly argument here, so I guess we should just leave it at that.

lol hold on a sec? The only person you've convinced that your the bigger man is yourself, since you carried on the argument in the same post as writing this. But it was a nice try, it really was.

I think I'm right when I say that every American will be cheering on Germany, and every Englishman will be cheering on Ghana and Serbia.

You misunderstood me. I didn't meant to say: "LOL LOOK AT ME I WON AN ARGUMENT! LOL!"
I just meant that we should just leave it as it is and not spam this topic with this silly conversation. ;)

But if you are happy: Yes, maybe it is wrong to call the english team "brits", but in my opinion it's no reason to start a fight here if someone does. ;)

I thought you'd finished the argument? The fact that you carried on posting suggests that you were willing to finish the argument if I left your response as the last response and therefore winning response.

Hah-haa you feel straight into my trap >:D

There is a lot of bitterness and resentment there, especially when foreigners refer to things like a 'British accent' when they are really talking about England.

I don't even think its possible for someone to do a Scottish accent properly if your from outside the UK.

That picture illustrates how awesome this evening should be.

Even if Germany don't do brilliantly here (unlikely I think), they are probably one of the stronger sides that is at least halfway towards developing a young, new side. Watch this space...

You're probably right for the best part, though Ghana and Serbia aren't exactly weak teams that guarantee easy wins. Everyone in the WC should take note!

He's been injured a lot in the past hasn't he? I can't remember off the top of my head. Dunno if that's actually affected his performance but he is looking a little pathetic out there. Poor Wayne.

Haha, yeah.

I think they've been the more impressive side so far, though that's not to say Germany haven't had some great chances. Ghana are just defending well.

I'm still keen on seeing an African side get through. Like the commentators keep saying though, these games shouldn't really end in draws, so it's open...

Yeah, they got really lucky there. You can see it in slowmo that Lahm touches the ball with his arm.

Anyway, how on earth could Özil miss that chance? How many chances does this guy need to score a goal?
Also: How many chances does the german team need to score from a corner kick or a free kick? I can't even remember when the last time was Germany scored from a corner kick. :(

German goal! It was coming, Ghana have been slightly lax in their defense in the second half.

Ozil finally gets a goal, and it was a great one. Well deserved by him and Germany. Thank God the nil-nil draw siutation has been averted, it wouldn't reflect well.
