Rant all you like about your favorite world cup here.

For me, still flabbergasted after the 1-5 victory from the Netherlands on the ruling world champion Spain.

Lots of beer afterwards to celebrate.

You aren't the only one who was surprised!

Then again, most of the best players who play for teams here in England are actually Dutch (Robert Van Persie), so...

Congrats, Netherlands!

Thanks.

Looks like England has a tough match ahead against Italy today.
Maybe against better judgement, but I'm rooting for England on this one.

I hope you're not betting money on that...

brazil got lucky with croatia because of that ref, man brazil looked average out there upto that point.

i was a little surprised waking up this morning to see spain got hammered by 4 goal difference to Netherlands, but not completely so because a number of dutch players have shown amazing skills recently in english football.

i was hoping the aussies would give chile a bloody nose, however being a south american country, it was expected they would beat australia.

i am still expecting an african country to upset the books, they have done in previous occasions, cameroon in 1990, senegal in 2002 and ghana in 2010. i really hope they have another shot at it, cameroon has failed on this occasion but you got nigeria, ghana, ivory coast and algeria that could still produce something mega.

I don't bet so no problem there. Betting on sports or cards takes away the fun aspect for me.

However, a draw (1-1) or a small English victory (2-1) would be a fairly safe bet for the upcoming match.

English players may not have been in the spotlight, but they're no slouch either.
Combine that with Italy living on prior reputation while not having current players to back that status up and i think England holds the best cards.

Edit: besides, being in a UK based fleet I'd get skewered if i said anything else.

good to see that, you get soccer in your country and have legends like beckham and henry, becoming footie fans. meanwhile nascar has spread into europe.

the american team has been put in a tough group for sure, germany and portugal. your chances are not that good and you should be wary of the ghana team, they could end up causing a minor upset.
