Ivory Coast - Portugal are still tied...boring match man,as most of the matches of this tournament.

Do you have any episode from yesterday's match to back this up or you just like to replay jokes based on black&white, cartoonish stereotypes?

(Anyway, I was especting a bit more from Portugal vs Ivory Coast...)

Folks, Italy played much better than Paraguay, at least in the second half. So shut up. :)

This particular Brazilian team is so damn boring,that Dunga guy has got to go.And portugal,big disapointment for me,granted they didn't have Nani on the field,but they could've done a way better job.

So far we had, among the big ones:
Argentina: scores with a defender and wastes 10000 occasions
England: the goalkeeper sucks
Germany: great
Italy: hit and miss
Brazil: takes an hour to score to Korea and 1 minute to almost waste it all
Portugal: nothing happened

We'll see what Spain will come up with tomorrow.... come on, one HAS to win the Cup somehow, they'd better show they deserve it!!! :P

watch Chile tomorrow,on the same group as spain,there's a big hype about their debut since the coach is former argentinian coach Marcelo Bielsa(who failed to qualify on korea/japan but won gold on the greek olympians)

I have rarely seen goals scored (intentionally) like that, he had practically reached the end of the field with just centimeters left before it would have been a goalkick. He knew exactly what he was doing the whole time. Maicon was godlike during the entire match btw, good luck to all offensive players on the left side to get past that guy ... Today's up : SPAIN ! I really hope they will leave a great impression and manage to progress far into the tournament this time. On paper at least, their team is the best of the whole bunch.

I had to laugh about the fact that random Chinese folks were hired to look like Korean supporters in the stadium, because real North Koreans would probabaly never return home afterwards.

While on one hand I like underdogs winning, in this case it just seems too much. Spain was playing attacking football the entire time, got very very unlucky and lost, I can imagine it feeling really unfair if you're Spanish.

That said, they have two more matches to make amends, so good luck to them, and congratulations to Switzerland!

I'm not so sure about that. Of course, Spain was playing a very nice offensive most of the time, but the Swiss defense did great as well (especially the goalie!). The one thing that I would consider "unfair" would be the when Spain hit the crossbar, on the other hand Switzerland hat that moment too when they hit the post, so I think it's pretty balanced.

Well, what was the old saying? "Football is a simple game, 22 people chase after a ball and then the germans win" :P

So far it seems true, let's see the second round what will bring - I still have to understand if everyone is playing safe because, for the first match, they consider NOT losing far more essential and important, or just because everyone is burned out from the european season only to find themselves having to play an extra month when all of a sudden it's winter...

The guy that told me that said he was serious, and he's in East Asian Studies. I didn't find any reports about it in the media, but what I did find was a report saying that they're planning to air the game against Brazil edited so that the outcome will be 0-1.

You'd have to beat France(wish i hope you do,Domenech is awful) and wait hope that mexico loses or ties both of their matches...actually there are a number of combinations that could lead South Africa qualifying to the next round,but i'm not too much into math at the moment :mrgreen:

I sincerely hope we go through as well. France isn't looking too good at the moment though, and if we play like we played against Mexico, without our typical stupid errors, we can win.

I really, really dislike whichever referee was at todays match. We only should've lost 1-0!

That's weird, because in my opinion, Bussacca is one of the best referees of Europe. But he was right about the penalty, it was clear that the goalkeeper hit Suarez.

but apaprently, Suarez was 2mm offside, so it shouldn't have come to that foul -.-

But I think that the referees in general are doing a pretty lousy job this tournament.

i'll even bet france loses against mexico today,that way avoiding them to clash with Brazil...you know,Brazil has a disease called "fear of france".

BTW,Argentina is winning against South Korea at the moment,Higuain has just scored this cup's first Hat-trick,awesome.

After Spain losing against Switzerland, there is a high possibility that in the round of the last 16 there'll be a match: Brazil vs Spain

Sounds nice 8)

But I'm curious how the south american teams will get along with the coldness in the evening. I mean....I read something about -1°C in the match Brazil vs North Korea.

Okay, that reaction by Kaita was stupid as hell, he obviously deserved that red card. Though I can understand it, and I think the Greek player should've at least gotten a warning. Provoking like that and punching the ball into the stomach of an opposing player shouldn't be allowed IMO.

But on the other hand, I often hear the (mostly) brazilian players in germany say that they want to play in spain, cause they don't get along with the coldness in germany. But I think you are right....it shouldn't be a big deal. Maybe a small one ;)

But I would have never thought that it could be that cold in south africa....even in winter.

Haha, Greece fails a goal already done, and on the counter attack from Nigeria, they equally fail a goal already done :D :P

That Nigerian goalkeeper is very good, though. I already thought he was great in the Argentina match, and this match he really keeps Nigeria alive.

Match is over, Greeks are going to have 11 people in the goal now.

Shame, it was a nice second half so far.
