    The goal of the tournament and the Bill Buckner of football!



    Even though that one off the post should have gone in (grrrrrrrr...), a draw vs. England is a very good result for the USA - and it was a fun to watch match all around.

    That was a tough game, poor Socceroos. On the upside, I thought the Australians filled out their uniforms the best.

    The German team looked really good. Mesut Özil was very impressive!

    Yeah our captain Lucas Neil is quite easy on the eye

    So Cameroon and Serbia have lost.... if they don't make it into the next round I will be quite surprised....

    Although that could make the U.S. draw better (assuming they do make it to the next round...)

    I'm surprised about the Cameroon loss. I couldn't watch it so had to check for live updates on NY Times blog.


    re: vuvuzela, I don't mind it really on tv. It just fades into the background like a bee buzzing around. Now if I were there and had one blaring next to my ear I think you'd find quite a few being inserted into the offending blarers' nostrils.

    On the NY Times Live Analysis blog for the Ivory Coast v. Portugal game Cristiano Ronaldo is the only player worthy of having both first and last name listed. I wonder why he gets special recognition.

    This thread is only two pages long? You stupid Americans. You are truly too dull to appreciate the beautiful game of football! Over in the Agora forum of Eurourbanisticá, which is like a more intelligent version of the Friday Afternoon Club, the FIFA World Cup thread is over 500 pages long! In fact, many of us work for employers that gave us the month off, so we can enjoy the World Cup in its entirety. That's on top of the 12 to 16 paid weeks we already get for holiday every year. I both pity and despise you, and your love for such brutal sports as handegg and clubball, your George Bush, and your support of Israel.

    Au contraire, mon frere. The paucity of comments mirrors the essence of soccer in quality of play and quantity (or lack thereof) of scoring. One might easily come to the conclusion that your beloved football is, in fact, an essentially pointless game.

    I'm perpelxed as to how North Korea managed to score a goal against Brazil, unless it was an own-goal. I figured it would be a 6-0 bludgeoning or thereabouts.

    North Korea did quite well in qualifying and its friendlies in the run-up to the Cup. Today, they packed the midfield. They got a good run-out late in the game and smashed a very nice goal. I'm just happy Brasil got the three points.

    This might sound strange, but I'm pulling for North Korea. Not in an "Our Dear Leader will guide our team to victory over the capitalist lackeys!" kind of way, but more like supporting the underdog, and hoping that 20 million people who lead hard lives can at least have one thing to celebrate.

    I was rooting for them so the team does not wind up in a death camp.

    WE WAS ROBBED!

    USA comes back and ties it up and then our 3rd goal not allowed (and replays show simething very different). Final 2-2

    I don't know what the heck that call was! Too bad we didn't play with the energy exhibited in the 2nd half for the entire game. Might've been a different outcome. Apparently the ref has made questionable decisions in the past link


    I must say, I thoroughly enjoy the post-match tradition of exchanging shirts.
