If England hadn't beaten Argentina, Brazil would be meeting Argentina on their way to the finals. Would that be easy?

hey Lanthir, congrats with your team reaching the next round, allthough they played a shitty match against Poland, i think they deserve to move on. I'm becoming a US fan more and more. Have you been dancing again today or not ?

I didn't know that canadians liked cricket - I thought icehockey was 'their' game

I'm really offended by that. Are we just an appitizer for them or what ? I would like to see all the Brazilian faces when we kick them out of the tournament [img]tongue.gif[/img] .

Seriously, as i said before, we wont have a big chance of winning but it's one game and a lot can happen in one game.

It's been shown that there's no such thing as an easy game in this tournament. Here's an example of supposed "easy games":

...France thought Senegal were "easy". Result? Senegal 1-0.

...France thought Denmark were "easy". Result? Denmark 2-0.

...Portugal thought USA were "easy". Result? USA 3-2.

...Portugal thought South Korea were "easy". Result? South Korea 1-0.

...Argentina thought Sweden were "easy". Result? 1-1 draw.

...Croatia thought Ecuador were "easy". Result? Ecuador 1-0.

...Italy thought Mexico were "easy". Result? 1-1 draw.

...Russia thought Japan were "easy". Result? Japan 1-0.

...Poland thought South Korea were "easy". Result? South Korea 2-0.

There are no easybeats in this World Cup. If anyone thinks there are they haven't been watching the same World Cup I've been watching.

I was so upst by the game that even though we advanced it was hard to get ecited. I even wound up watching Sk v Port in the secodn half insteado fthe US match becasue I had to root for Sk. The one bright spot is that I would rather play mexico than Italy.

Mexico will be favourites i guess but so far the US was quite comfortable in the underdog roll, i think they have a good chance of upsetting the entire footballworld.
