YAY!!! We won! 

2-1

I had given up hope but then Sneijder scored and gave us hope! And in the last few minutes Huntelaar scored, yay!

The Mexican keeper was very good, though.But I'm glad we're going to the quarterfinals!

CONFLICT ALERT: On Tuesday, as both a religious hockey fan and an avid soccer fan and patriot, I will have to keep track of NHL Free Agency starting as well as the USA's knockout game against Belgium. Thankfully, free agency starts at noon and the game at 4, so the signings will've died down by then.

So, ehm, may I ask why you're going to miss it @Linde? 

We went out for dinner with the whole family, for my grandma's 85th Birthday. One of my cousins was a bit sneaky and watched it on his cellphone though. It was in a eh..wok restaurant, so it wasn't that rude. Oh and there was a laptop near the kitchen, on which the employees could watch it and we sometimes stopped there to watch a bit too. So in the end I did see it. It's amazing! I was running around there like a lunatic, I didn't expect us to come back after that 1-0!

So now we have to wait to know whether we'll be playing against Greece or Costa Rica next week.

Greece v Costa Rica is one of the worst games of football i've ever seen. And at least another 15 minutes to go before the possibility of penalties to decide such a s&*~fest.

That's nice a-hard-days-night-ringo-10 I also didn't expect that we would win. When Huntelaar scored I was so excited, also kind of running around like a lunatic a-hard-days-night-paul-8It was all pretty unbelievable.

Nice win I guess - though Robben should perhaps be in the Olympic diving team in his spare time.

Very good! You guys were very strong on the ball! I thought you guys deserved it! As per Greece vs. Costa Rica, it was rubbish! If you asked me, Greece should have won. But I agree with MMM on the grounds that it was rubbish! Just like Brazil vs. Chile. Brazil was playing like crap! But I really am happy for Colombia's win against Uruguay! This has been their best year ever, especially to defeat one of the big football teams. And they do have the advantage of being in better shape than Brazil. Holland is in better shape than Costa Rica as well.

Ah so Costa Rica it is then. Haven't seen them playing yet, actually. Heard they're quite tough though. 

I was just thinking how hard it must be to play right now. I didn't realize it's so hot in Brazil

Costa Rica will be dangerous as they comfortably beat Uruguay, deservedly beat Italy and settled for a bore draw against England. The difference with the Greece game was that the Greeks sat back waiting for Costa Rice to go at them and that's not how they play so it became atrocious viewing.

Yes - the cumulative heat will take its toll on the European teams which is part of the reason why no European team has won the World Cup in that part of the world (yet).  It will be an amazing accomplishment if one of them manages it this time.

Best of luck to Switzerland. I do hope they are able to beat Argentina. It will be difficult but I do hope they will do it.

Argentina have been bailed out by Messi a few times so Switerland have a chance of an upset if they can stop him or he has an off day. Admittedly that's a big if. 

Last nights match between Germany and Algeria was one of the best games i've seen in a long time.

Bad luck for the USA in that final minute of normal time - he really should have buried it.  Showed great spirit to fight to the end though.

The quarter-finals should be great with all 8 group winners getting through.

Bah humbug - penalties again and all the usual suspects through.  Ah well, maybe Netherlands can snatch it - no one has been hugely impressive so far so it seems it is up for grabs.

I am going to go ahead and admit something... I was crying my eyes out when Mexico lost. My father promised me a new record player if Mexico won this year... but no.

I hate that we won due to the penalties, but I'm glad we won nonetheless. I was very disappointed with how van Persie and Sneijder were playing. Our goalie did very well though, but it was a smart move to change him for Krul during the penalties. I think Costa Rica's goalie was a monster too, man, what a guy! It was fun to watch. I think that if we play smart, we can easily beat Argentina too on Wednesday.

Only thing I always hate when we win is all these hooligans on the streets with fireworks and those vuvuzela things.

Brazil are getting destroyed. Its 5 nil to Germany after 30 minutes.

Amazing result - can't recall seeing something like that happen even after watching football for 50 years or so.
