Costa Rice deservedly beat Italy ensuring they qualify from their group with a game to spare, Italy face Uruguay for a fight to the death for the remaining spot and England are definitely going home.

Only got to watch Netherlands vs. Australia- out of the 150 people in the college, only three were rooting for The Netherlands...

And I was one of them a-hard-days-night-john-1

Russia vs Belgium is currently on and consists of both teams jogging around the pitch and giving away the ball. Occasionally one thinks about attacking the opponents goal so they either lumber up the park before giving the ball away or boot it from 25 yards out in the hope it goes somewhere near the keeper yet only succeed in hitting someone in the crowd.

Devoid of any excitement is too kind a description.

Article in the New York Times on how Americans are very bad at faking injuries and really need to improve that part of their game ...

I don't really follow the game, but from watching without the sound I think I see what they mean.

No, no, football is American rugby. ;-)

There's another sport thats sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring to watch. Shout random numbers, throw ball, run, catch ball, stop game, have a chat, repeat till everyone gets bored and begins to slip into a coma. Team with most fans able to count to ten wins. Any sport where the teams stop to have a chat during the game (not including half-time) has problems.

Actually, the term 'soccer' is originally ... English or perhaps British - not American. 100 years ago, the English/British would also occasionally spell it "socker." They also sometimes called it 'football' of course.

Those interested in this should look up a lengthy front page article on this topic in the New York Times within the last 10 days.

USA v Portugal was interesting - shame for the US about the last second lapse in concentration.  Still, if they play that well against Germany they should make it through and Ronaldo and co. can pack their bags.

France game the other day was fun.

Tonight it's the Netherlands vs Chile.

I hope we'll kick some serious butt.

Dont be surprised if the Germany and US game ends in a draw. A draw sends both countries thru and the USA's coach is German legend and ex-coach Jurgen Klinsmann who hired the current German coach Joachim Low as his assistant back then.

Yeah, I would at least like a tie because they are both teams I like, but when push comes to shove, I'm obviously going for the United States! At least Colombia is qualified!

We did kick some serious butt. I loved how we put in this guy and everyone is like ''who the f*** is that?'' and he scores within two minutes!

Nice work winning the group - Mexico will be tough but you should win the game.

Awesome gameplay from Brazil last night! Too bad that they play against Chile, though.

And that they were playing a dreadful Cameroon side. Its easy to play well against a team who are worse than England.
