After realizing that the Netherlands had a dolphin on their team, Spain quickly collapsed yesterday to give the Netherlands a 5-1 victory with 5 unanswered goals. In the underdog department, Australia gave up two within the first few minutes, but quickly pulled themselves together to give an unexpectedly impressive show, but were still unable to stop Chile from pulling off a 3-1 victory, but still able to gain a spot above Spain in their group. Cameroon and Mexico played against the refs, resulting in plenty of goals called for being offside, and a 1-0 victory for Mexico.

Today we've got 8th ranked Colombia against Greece (ranked 12), followed by 7th ranked Uruguay and 28th ranked Costa Rica. England (10) will face off against Italy (9) in what should be the best match of the day, but we stand the chance of seeing another crushing victory for one side. The Ivory Coast (23) will then finish off the night against Japan (46th)

How long until the US team gets crushed, and we can go back to ignoring the World Cup?

MmmmBacon: How long until the US team gets crushed, and we can go back to ignoring the World Cup?


They play their first match against Ghana on Monday which should prove to be interesting, but I think they're going to lose. I don't think they'll get crushed until the 22nd against Portugal, then have their dreams shattered versus Deutschland on the 26th.

I'm Ghana hope that Germany and Ghana get through, just to see both Portuguese and US fans crying together. It would finally cause the great flood and my ark will be useful.

I think the US won't take Ghana lightly again and will be busting ass for every moment of that game. The games against Germany and Portugal are longshots, which means if they want any points at all, it's gotta be against Ghana.

Had no farking clue what this headline was about until I got to the end.  And I was looking for the World Cup thread.....  Clearly I'm only a fan of futbol for about a month every four years.

I'm of Italian descent and can't stand the Italian national team. This might be the one time I root for England.

Last futbol game I attended was a group stage match at last year's Gold Cup. I was sitting amongst fans of Costa Rica, and my self-preservation instincts and music-predisposed mind almost got me singing along to the eternal chants of "Ole ole ole! Tico! Ticooooooooo!" but I resisted. And then Drek Shea scored so the US won and it was all good.

My picks today:
Columbia over Greece
Uruguay over Costa Rica
England draw Italy
Cote d'Ivoire over Japan

Today's trivia questions: With Spain's shiat-kicking yesterday, who now owns the longest current shutout streak at World Cup Finals? Among teams at this year's tournament, whose active shutout streak is longest?
 
2014-06-14 11:25:24 AM  
I'm going to give it my all trying to enjoy all of today's matches.   Still, I can't believe the number of goals disallowed for offside calls yesterday, especially the one that was called off of a corner kick.

I was at work yesterday so I had to rely on the highlights to see everything. That was a terrible call. Does that assistant know the rules of the game!? It was a worse call than the 1st disallowed MEX goal because I've seen that situation called both ways (I think if there's a doubt, play on but I'm no expert). But calling offsides on that corner was just plain wrong.
 
2014-06-14 11:36:27 AM  
Enjoy the games chaps. I'm off to Edinburgh for one of my occasional parties with ladies in fabby shiny outfits.

Even missing the Eng-Ita game.
 
2014-06-14 11:37:30 AM  
I really wish I had taken a screenshot of the Fark pool standings yesterday morning after I correctly predicted Brazil 3-1 with the bonus chip.  Alas, it's all downhill from there, especially since I seem to have the same picks as pretty much everybody else today.
 
2014-06-14 11:37:48 AM  
Also, I think the US team can qualify from the group. Unless they don't beat Ghana - which they should.
 
2014-06-14 11:41:27 AM  
Has there been any word from FIFA on the two Mexico offsides calls from yesterday?  They were quick to defend the penalty in the Brazil game, but I haven't yet heard anything about those two, plainly wrong calls.

No Buffon, eh? I think this is actually good for Italy. Sirigu is a better keeper anyway.

Love the Greek anthem. Love the Greek unis, too.

I think this match has the potential to be one of the barn-burners.

Of course, it will likely be 0-0.

One thing I've noticed in every game is players getting too fancy when they have the ball in the box.  They have an open lane for a goal, but rather than take the shot, they decide instead to try to pass it to another and possession is lost.

And again, players getting too fancy rather than just taking a shot, consequentially losing possession.  Samaras makes up for it with his effort just wide, but that's no excuse for the others not really taking a shot when the lane is open.

mootmah: dietbubba: kab: NHL raised the bar for ref incompetency last evening, lets see if World Cup officials have an answer for them today!

I missed the game but saw a lot of Rangers fans complaining.  What was it that was so bad?

Game-tying goal came off of a trip that was called on the wrong team.


Meh, there are bad, missed, or weak calls EVERY game for both teams.  Reffing is part of every sport.
The other team killed their share of penalties on bad calls and flops, Rangers failed to kill theirs.

RminusQ: Today's trivia questions: With Spain's shiat-kicking yesterday, who now owns the longest current shutout streak at World Cup Finals? Among teams at this year's tournament, whose active shutout streak is longest?


Answers: After allowing a 29th minute penalty to Italy, New Zealand went the rest of that game and all of a 0-0 draw with Paraguay without conceding, meaning they are on a 151-minute shutout streak. The longest streak by a team that is here also ended with a 0-0 draw to Paraguay; that team is Japan, riding a 129-minute without their opponents scoring into tonight's battle with Cote d'Ivoire.

TV ratings for EPL matches on NBC were well above what FOX Soccer and ESPN2 were ever able to accomplish. TV ratings for Thursday's WC opener were well up compared to 4 years ago. He says these things, but the evidence clearly points to him being wrong.

First, he's an idiot. I don't like golf, but I understand it requires skill and practice and that sometimes amazing shots are have a lot of luck in them. Doesn't mean it isn't a 'real' sport. Speaking of golf, isn't that more 'old world' than not?

But he's a professor of philosophy. He could convince himself that dying alone in the middle of the sahara desert is as good as sitting in a cool bar drinking cold beer and having hot women all around him.

NBC actually promoted it. Fox just stuck most of the games on Fox Soccer with little or no promotion and only recently started to air some of the bigger games on the Fox Network.
