Hey Ejit, when did you get banned?

That said he does have a 1:1 shots on target:goal ratio.

Yeah, Paraguay defintely didn't bend over, on the contrary they stood up and fought back with excellent results so far.

And not forgetting the beating the Germs gave the Argies. He got the one sided game wrong.

This has been an incredible match. I really hope it goes to penalties.

Ah, Spanish goal. Some good play between Iniesta (I think?) and Villa, and at first it hit the post! They're one up though, and I don't see Paraguay coming back. They play well, but they lack a really effective piercing attack. Still seven and a bit minutes left. I suppose there's still time!

I'm rooting for Holland so I hope Spain goes through and beats Germany, Germany are a major threat. They've just got to hang on a little longer.

Spain won..but they only have Casillias to thank for his three goal-denying saves.
However if Spain plays like that against Germany, well...

Who heard David Villa right at the end? He has a little girl's voice.

I like seeing players of both sides get-together at the ned of a game. There have been far too many games in this tournament where players just haven't saluted each other at the end, and it seems cold, as if every single player is as egocentric as we generally think. Cardozo's in tears, I feel for him. The whole team were trying, but it was his penalty he missed. Too bad guys - they have determination, I'll say.

Also, it helps when Spanish players are wearing those black vests that look as though they rushed into the stadium from a Take That tribute concert and didn't have time to change properly. Of course, ladies?

If Parauguay had Cabañas, his starting striker, things would have been different.
In case you didn't know, he got shot in the head in January, here in México. I know, our country is in a pretty shitty situation...

He is probably as good as Villa imho.

Anyways, Paraguay was good, but Spain is just a great team. They have players whoi can score any minute.

If both sides play like they played all tournament Spain doesn't stand a single chance if you ask me. I'm surprised they even made it as far as the semi-finals.

So the most probable final is Holland against Germany, but you never know what could happen...
Oh, by the way, the first penalty (the one being caught by Casillias) was to be repeated as well since there were only players from Spain in the penalty area during and after the penalty..
Once again the refereeing was very poor, with one penalty not being conceded and another one not being cancelled (and a myriad of minor mistakes).

Nah, it was a harsh decision, but I think it was right. Saying: "He isn't offisde until he touches the ball." wouldn't be enough.
The defence is irritated adn the goalkeeper as well, so the player who's offisde can cause a lot of trouble even though he doesn't touch the ball.

Anyway, Spain didn't play well but overall the victory was deserved.

It felt so good seeing Germany score 3 more goals, and, Maradonna's face was totally priceless.

I remember some guy here saying "im telling you guys argentina's going to win and you guys will remember me" yeah, I do remember him alright. It's also funny how the argies were making fun of Brasil losing and then they get their asses handed to them.

Yeah, Brazil and Argentina were having a lot of fun dreaming of the world cup white beating minor teams, but as soon as they faced a serious threat they ran into a stone wall and crashed..

I always knew Brazil wouldn't win this year, I had my doubts about Argentina, but today they were sent home. I'm thinking Germany's going to win the WC this year, but hell, you can never be sure, right?
The only team I fell kind of bad about is Ghana, they had such great chances and lost them.

I was floored when I watched the ending of the Ghana game. They had that game in the bag and were ready to advance onto the next round and they just let it slip away. It's not often that you get that kind of a chance on the world stage. Alas though they were the team from Africa that went the farthest.

Yeah, mostly every other African team's fans just started cheering for Ghana, it was almost like the whole continent was putting their hopes on them.

Hey, Italy sure as fuck wouldn't have gotten anywhere without Buffon saving our butts every single match.

Perhaps not the most deserved win in the world, but I think it's nice to see 'em get a chance to win a second major title in two years.

They gotta wake the hell up, though.


Pure awesomeness. You must read it.

Well, the last African country is out. That's a shame, I would've loved to see an African country in teh semi-finals or even the finals. So we are going to encounter Uruguay now. Shouldn't be a problem. There missing Suarez and probably two defenders. I think we can handle it. :)

We're also missing a midfielder (Lodeiro).

Also, both of the matches today were awesome. IMO Paraguay deserved to win. Once again, the referees make a mistake that completely changes the result of the game. First of all, the offside goal, and then the penalty shots. If the penalty kick by Spain (after a foul that didn't exist) was disallowed, then Paraguay's penalty should have been disallowed too.
