Costa Rica's match vs England means nothing for either one. CR is in, England is out. However, England may be looking for at least one impressive match, and CR might want to prove that it hasn't just been a fluke, and that they may be a real threat. 

Italy and Uruguay decides which one joins CR. Both tied at 3 points, Italy have one on them on GD, so a draw would be good enough, but it's likely going to come down to a victor.

Ivory Coast, Japan, and Greece are all still alive in their group with Colombia having made it through. Ivory Coast has 3 points to their 1, and arguably has the easier game against Greece, but Colombia may rest having already secured the group and allow Japan a chance to scoop up some points. Greece's goal difference really doesn't give them much a chance in the end. If both the Ivory Coast and Japan win, IC goes through. If Japan wins and IV draws, then Japan needs a few more goals (-1 to IC's 0)

Everyone is picking Italy. They do look tough and organized. I think CR wins the group, though. If I were them, I'd keep pushing. You don't want to get complacent.

Italy will surely be a test, but Suarez is still running on high octane.

I can't f*cking wait.

But sadly, I have to as I am at work. I'll watch it when I get home.

Until then, I'll ignore everyone and everything all day long.

Colombia has looked pretty good. I would want to avoid them if I could. That is what the Ticos have to play for.

there was no thread when i left home at 5am so no tables but i will say that marius is not quite correct. costa rica need at least a draw to guarantee first in the group.

Rooney.
 
2014-06-24 11:08:39 AM  
I find it hilarious that my ancestral homeland (Greece) can advance with a 1-0 win over Ivory Coast coupled with a Japan loss to Colombia.

Greece: 1 goal scored in 3 games, 4 points, advances to round of 16. Lulz.

And then you have the US not guaranteed a spot with 4 points. This game gets nuts sometimes.......
 
2014-06-24 11:11:22 AM  
If I was Costa Rica Id mostly be telling players to avoid red cards at this point. Even if that makes them lose today.

I'll admit it, I'm  a little burned out on it. I may take today off.
 
2014-06-24 11:26:35 AM  
Costa Rica should want to win today to make sure they don't get Columbia next round. If they come in second in the group the will most likely get Columbia, if they come in first they will get either Japan or Ivory Coast. If I'm Costa Rica I play for the win and hope Japan gets through.
 
2014-06-24 11:30:20 AM  
I've got Costa Rica continuing their run over a deflated England (2-1), but the Italy/Uruguay match...man that's hard. Right now I've got a 2-2 draw thinking both sides will give their all, but I'm not sure.  Keep wanting to pick a Italy win.

I'm never burned out on watching England losing. Maybe more of their agony will make me forget that we need to tie Germany on Thursday
 
2014-06-24 11:31:44 AM  
I wouldn't even bet a dollar on the URU/ITA match, b/c I literally have no farking clue what's going to happen. Okay, I'd bet $10 that Balotelli will get another yellow card.
 
2014-06-24 11:32:53 AM  
Do I watch Italy get eliminated, or do I root for Costa Rica to take 9 points?
 
2014-06-24 11:35:20 AM  
I want Uruguay, to keep alive the possibilty of a repeat of 1950.
 
2014-06-24 11:35:49 AM  
Don't care about the early games so much, but for the late games I'm rooting for Japan to win 2-1 and Greece to win 3-0, as it would result in Japan and Greece drawing lots for advancement

Hey I would LOVE for Greece to win by 3.

I know this team. Once they score, they'll clam up and play defense the rest of the game. That's the style that won the Eurocup in 2004.
