No chance in hell this is going to be a draw

both teams perfectly happy with a point yo

and Spain/Chile..well, it might be interesting, but it might also be pretty one-sided

oh god no. laying spain to qualify at 1.35, value imo

Damn, this thread sure has grown. Saw the Japan game last night, they wiped the floor with Denmark. The free kicks were quality. And the Italians will really get it in the neck when they get back home.

I heard France and Italy going from finalists to last in the group stage was a new record by the way. It has never happened before in WC history :p

Anyway before the WC I was really looking forward to Brazil - Portugal, but unfortunately there isn't much at stake. It's only about who will be the group winners, but whether that's such an advantage is not even certain because anything can still happen in group H and I don't know if they would rather want to face Chile or Spain (or Switzerland).

I assume they are still gonna go for the win though.

Hah! See, world? While you win your boring, predictable Cups, we BREAK RECORDS.

And we do it even better than the French, since we fuckin' WON the last Cup.

Then we had our asses handed to us in the first round.

By Slovacchia.

And New Zealand.

...

...yeah, I'll shut up now.

Portugal's play is disgusting. Doing anything to get Brazil down and carded. 7 yellow cards in the first half.

Not the true skill, brilliant football match I was anticipating.

As a Roma fan, I hope Baptista scores a goal or gets a bunch of assists.

So we can sell the useless bastard for a load of money. He's HUGE, but he constantly gets pushed over and loses his balance like he's running on marbles. He can't pass worth a damn, can't cross, can't jump.

All he's got is that damned shot of his, and even then he needs plenty of time to take it properly.

C'mon Brazil, don't be dicks. Pass it to him, then hit the pitch before he fires it.

Nilmar will PWN Portugal in this second half. I've always said he was the best in this team, and there he is, playing even better than Robinho was. NILMAR!!!

Also, Ivory Coast will go 10-0. ;P

Brazil are over-rated when any team gives them a phsyical challenge they just fall over and cry, teams that like to press and get stuck in like England and Germany (shame only one can go see em eh) wont fear Brazil as for Portugal they're basically the same its a like for like football match it was always gonna be close

I haven't seen much of the game, but the 10 minutes that I have watched made it look like quite a dirty match (Portugal - Brazil).

Pepe should've gotten a red card instead of a yellow in my opinion. He was clearly not going for the ball and could've broken that other guys ankle.

I never understood why politicians care so much about football. I heard either in Italy or France the government was actually having discussions about their national teams WC performance. And of course there was that one time where Sarkozy apologized to the prime minister of Ireland about Henry's hand ball. It's quite ridiculous in my opinion.

They care just as much as any other person. This world cup means so much to the people of Europe people say its only a game but its a really big fucking deal, these players are representing your countries and France and Italy were embarrassing they shamed themselves and their countries if i were in charge id go fucking mental at em aswell . I dont see how they are in the wrong

This match is dreadful. I'm glad I missed most of it. Engineered? I don't know. Boring? Yes.

Brazil and Portugal advance into the second round despite the match being a 0-0 draw. Brazil won two of their three games. Ivory Coast beat North Korea 3-0 today, but they needed to beat them by ten goals (I believe, whatever) in order to beat Portugal's goal difference, since they had the same number of points. Portugal's goal difference was high since they beat North Korea 7-0.

Brazil will continue to be no 1 in it's group and Portugal in 2nd, so Brazil didn't have to win.
And Ivory Coast won 3-0 against North Korea.

Least we're famous for more than 2-cent beer and a movie featuring Vin Diesel and Celeborn. A.k.a. culture.

Anyhow, not sure what the French are up to, but the Italian politicians (being honest about the fact that they love soccer) said that the national team's complete and utter failure at the Cup is a clear sign that the Serie A and other high-tier Italian soccer competitions are wasting way too much time and money on foreign talent, when they SHOULD be training perfectly good young players from their own backyard.

2006's team was kinda getting on in years as it was. 2010? Old players are OLD, new players have no clue what the fuck they're supposed to do, etc.

Then some idiots added something about FEMALE Italian soccer, but who gives a flying fuck about what chicks do in sports unless it's mud-wrestling, amirite?
