• It is all about the massive money invested in hosting the world cup 🙂


  • Did the tv station you watch it on show the protests after the match? In the UK, ITV were showing the window behind the presenters, the windows had been chipped and cracked all over. Mental stuff.


  • The linesman in this Mexico v Cameroon game is on glue!!!

    Two goals for Mexico, both flagged as offside, both wrong decisions.

    Unbelievable Jeff!!


  • @a_5mith

    Yeah, awful officiating. In the end, Mexico still won. Cameroon played like Brazil, that is, with no sense of purpose. The most interesting match in this group will be between Cameroon and Croatia. Similar attacking style of football. Brazil will qualify. Cameroon will definitely go home. The tossup will be Mexico or Croatia.


  • Spain are having their cavities well and truly explored here by the Netherlands. Incredible football.

    Bad news for me though, my other half is Spanish. 😆


  • @a_5mith

    Rooting for the Dutch. The most exciting match of the tournament so far. For Spain, the score line could have been even worse. Great game.


  • Best game of the championship so far. Brilliant goals by the Dutch. My faves together with Brazil for the cup.

    Man, that header by van Persie!!!

    Yes, that was brilliant. So far, that's the goal of the tournament.


  • Btw, this group is still wide open. Spain could still win their next two games, and the Dutch could lose one. Exciting stuff.


  • @planner On one side, judging by todays performance, I can't see that happening. On the other side, they lost their first game in the last world cup, so anything could happen.

    Yeah I was only supporting cameroon because their left back plays for spurs, which is my team (hopefully @a_5mith isn't from London and a gooner, otherwise things are going down south soon). Even after all those idiotic decisions they still lost the match.

    I missed the netherlands game 😞 I wish I saw it, I'm supporting both the dutch and england, but am not expecting either to make it past the quarter finals at best. Even though the Dutch destroyed Spain, I'm still not expecting much. Don't forget they murdered Italy and France in the group of death in Euro 2008 and then played like crap when it counted.

    The header was great, but he could have easily taken a touch and passed it into the net without having anybody around him. The kudos should go to Daley Blind for the inch perfect pass from left back. That guy ain't so blind afterall...


  • @psychobunny I only really support Rugby teams, I've been to watch West Brom play once or twice though, so if they're on I'll watch/semi-support. Got to support the underdogs. 😆


  • West Brom played real well the previous year when they had Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea


  • @psychobunny Hopefully they get Tim Sherwood on board. Would be good to see them finish in the top 10 next season. 👍


  • England played so badly. They played like a team who were 2-1 up, not down. Spent more time going backwards, ruined nearly all their chances when it mattered.


  • @a_5mith said:

    Actually, I thought they played very well. Sterling and Sturridge and Johnson played very well. They just did not attack as often. They should figure out how to move the ball thru Sterling and Sturridge . The Italian #21 was just awful. wonder how he made the team.


  • @planner The finishing I found disappointing, so many shots on target, Rooney in space, panicked and shot it wide, free kicks lacking accuracy. Rooneys corner was just embarrassing. But I agree the midfield football was great.

    I guess they played as expected. 😞


  • If you did not watch the Nigeria vs Iran match, you spent your time very well. I just wasted more than 90 minutes watching the most boring, unimaginative football match ever. It was so bad even the crowd started booing.

    Terrible. Thankfully, both teams will not make it past the group stages.
