    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.

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

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

    Unbelievable Jeff!!

    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:

    England played so badly

    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.


  • USA game on the other hand, 1-0 after 32 seconds. Unbelievable Geoff!


  • @a_5mith
    Yeah, and Ghana playing just like Nigeria, slightly better still still unimaginative. I think USA will win.

    Yeah 😕 At least I was working while watching but it was a seriously boring game. Then again I guess we've been spoilt by the other goal-fests

    USA game on the other hand, 1-0 after 32 seconds. Unbelievable Geoff!

    I have a bit of a soft spot for Dempsey coz he used to play for Spurs, so I guess I'll be rooting for USA for that group anyways


  • Two cracking goals from Belgium. Really good from Fellaini & Mercent.


  • Took them a while to wake up and start playing though 😛


  • @a_5mith said:

    How is that? The score reads 1-1


  • @planner It finished 2-1, they scored again after 5 minutes or so.


  • Haha game is over already, planner's TV station is 15 minutes late
