    I figured it was something like that. Thanks for answering. Thus ends my interest in the world cup.

    Good performance from England, if Iran are the 2nd best team in Asia then none of their teams are getting out of the group stage.

    I think England, Spain & France have demonstrated that if you get ahead you have to keep driving for more goals. Germany and Argentina got ahead but couldn't finish it.

    But that Golden generation has already bronzed quite a bit.

    They deserved two extra penalties, which would have made it even more possible.

    At least one penalty was certainly missed.

    Yes, it was, but there should have been two more. In one case the referee decided it was offside, while it was clear the ball was played by a Belgium-player.

    Well, Portugal was lucky too. Could have been 3:3 in the last minute because of a blunder from the goalkeeper.

    Spain was great and now looking foreward seeing Brazil and its starteam.

    The Netherlands sucked big time too against Equador. But with 4 points out of two games and still a match against Qatar to go we are in a fine position.

    Still we have to improve a lot to make any impact in this tournament.

    Hello Gang!

    This is just crazy:
    Costa Rica: 1 - Japan: 0 ... and after that "catastrophic massacre" against Spain (0-7). Spain vs Germany right now and on Wednesday, Japan beat Germany 2-1.

    Craazyy!
