    I feel sorta sorry for England. The media hypes the squad as if it were perfect... and are the first to gut them.
    I have to say, I like the USA. They've no hope of winning the thing of course, but I really hope they fight hard and get a few surprise goals. Everyone makes them out to be hopeless but I think they're alright.

    What else... well, my country was never in the WC, so I don't care who wins. But if I had to choose, I guess I'd go for... Germany. Maybe.

    The way I see it, no need to cry over spilt milk. (hoho)
    Germany are gonna beat England. This is a fact. We can hope that England slaughter them (5-1, and even Heskey scored), but it's highly unlikely with how we played in the first two games. We played a lot better against Slovenia, but we seriously need to up our game to go the distance.

    I'd just like to take this moment to wish France a very healthy goodbye. South Africa and Mexico wish you well.

    I'll support England and the USA for as long as they are in the World Cup now. If neither of them two win, I'm gonna back either Argentina or Holland.

    Come on Holland. Beat Spain!

    No matter who wins, it's gonna be a new country that lifts the trophy. At least that is good.

    Even though this has been the worst World Cup I've seen in my lifetime.

    I don't like how the Dutch are blaming Howard Webb for losing. He made a couple of contentious decisions but he was also incredibly lenient towards De Jong and Van Bommel. Spain were the better team and I'm glad that they won.

    Seriously, why is everyone hating on Howard Webb?
    I watched the entire match, and he was lenient all the way through, which is just how he referees. Holland were lucky to be not down to 8 men, and Spain can even consider themselves lucky as some referees in this World Cup would have given out reds instead of yellows.
    I agreed with every single decision Howard Webb made, and I was hoping that Holland would win. So you can shut up complaining about something that was completely fair... Jeez, it's like making a topic on these forums complaining about being rightfully muted...

    Did you even see the pic?

    If this isnt a red card i seriously wonder what is. The match should have been 8 vs 9-10 an not 10 vs 11 in the end if he would have seen it correctly, which shouldnt have been too diffcult, it was very obvious most of the time. It was not the wort refereeing (?) in the world, but at least it wasnt good (really NOT good)
