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.

Wouldn't it be fitting, if the US won the tournament? Such a messed up Cup this is turning out to be...man.

Bring on group D.
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.
Am I right?

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!

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

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.

That is because he has Scottish family.

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...

Can't wait for the Hitler reaction videos on youtube if Germany doesn't manage to pull this off.

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.

Awesome! Although I like to see an African country make it through as well, I don't want them to pass at the cost of Germany personally. Hopefully Germany can keep this up and we'll see an England - Germany in round 2 :)

Now that you mention it, I have hardly seen any goals from free kicks or corner kicks in this WC.

Set pieces have been somewhat disappointing in this World Cup so far. Whether or not it's the ball or whatever like the press like to claim, I'm not sure. C-Hawk's post from a few pages back has me believe that it's more to do with the players themselves really.

There've been a few teams to get around them though, South Korea being one for example. They scored from a free kick yesterday didn't they?

Australia goal! Ghana still hang onto second, but there's twenty minutes left - time for Serbia to equalise!

Anyone watching that game? How is it?

Goal for Australia!

Best scenario imaginable for Germany. Too bad for the Serbs though, it would've been nice to see them in the second round.

Idk, I heard on the broadcast of the US game today that there has been no freekick goals.

Oh yeah South-Korea did, although it mostly thanks to poor goalkeeping the ball went in.

2-0 Australia!

It would be totally epic if Australia could make it through this group. They need two more goals, or they need Germany to score two more goals I believe.

Ghana-Germany wasn't bad, but I expected more goals...dunno about the other one.

So it's England-Germany and Australia-Ghana...
Nice.
