It was a weak performance from both sides, Beckham's free kick was a lucky one although if "Gammar" or whatever his name was didn't touch the ball the chances were most likely it would of been a goal. Not an enjoyable match i must say, yesterdays first match was more interesting, anyway England won :D thats what matters. I really felt sorry for Crouch, he got so many warnings, he can't help it coz he is too tall for a football player but some of the warnings were silly.

Can't believe Trinidad & Tobago managed a draw. They were defending the whole of the 2nd half, and their goalie played really well.

Very fun game, indeed. Funny thing is that both goalies in that game are the subs. Trinidad showed up to play and weren't scared. Unfortunately, they had to defend more often when they were reduced to ten men.

England? Pfft...what a horrific showing from them.

Now its time to watch the Ivory Coast possibly upset Argentina :D

I dislike them too, but this one was quite entertaining comparing them to other rubbish games (England - Paraguay).

It was Sven's reserved Italian tactics that made it dull from a pro-England p.o.v. Our players played very high quality football I feel, ecspecially with the ref making the decisions that he did making our lives difficult every oppurtunity he could.

VERY interesting poll.

I would have said that Germany has a better chance of winning the world cup then England since they are playing at home and the way they played four years ago. And yeah of course majority is going for Brazil. what's new? haha

Now I'm not really expecting anything great from Czech Republic. As you might have heard, they are having a hard time with their players getting injured this year and well, they aren't getting any younger, that team is getting old and I think dried out. But we'll have to see how they do against Italy. I don't think they have to worry about the United States. This country isn't into this game enough to go far..

I just wished Turkey was in the world cup... they had to **** up...

But over all. Brazil and Turkish soccer teams are the best in the world. IMO

Turkey? well before the world cup they were #14 but because they didn't make it they'll probably go down to the 30's.

and i don't think it's alright to compare brazil and turkey. lol.

sounds kinda funny to me

LOL, I respect your opinion, but almost al sports are like that: (the way I see it)

Football (Original one the one that is actually played with the foot):kick kick kick, goal foul kick kick.. repeat

Baseball: strike, strike ball, strike hit repeat

American Football (1st down 2nd down 3down kick..repeat till someone messes up and touch down)

Box punch punch punch

The thing is that all sports are like that, when you are a fan you see more than the kicks the hits or the punches, you see the passion and the beauty of the game, the colors of your club or the flag of your country . and of course the mighty sensation of scoring a goal in your oponent face GOOOOOOOLLLL, GOOOOOOAAAAALLL... GO WORLD CUP, GO MEXICO GO FOOTBALLL!!!!

Touche. To be fair though, I don't like American Football either. I guess I just like sports with a good flow to them, not ones with constant stops in play. I guess that's why Basketball and Ice Hockey are my faves. Going a hour with no goal and barely even any shots on net is not exciting to me :p

Now thats what you call an enjoyable football, wicked game Arg vs Ivory Coast, 2:0 to Argentina. But i have to say Ivory Coast are really good, i have no doubts that they will not score at least one goal, they getting so many chances.

Argentina does not deserve to be ahead by two goals. Hell, I don't even think they deserve be up at all. I sure hope Ivory Coast comes out in the second half and tries to tie it up. Argentina's defense is not as good as it looks.

Ivory Coast reminds me of Senegal from the 2002 World Cup.

WHAT?!

ARGENTINA FTW!

They are two goals ahead, but it should be 3 , technically. The damn ball got in the first time!

Well mate....sry to disappoint you but Argertina x Ivory Coast is the best match till now(at least the first half).

Very nice and clean game, exactly how a world cup match has to be.

They played several angles and it DEFINITELY got in. But it was hard to tell, anyway.
