So close for Slovenia. I didn't see the first half time, but you looked good in the second, much better than against Algier.

This evening should be interesting as well.

And the drunks stagger into the library, because of course, where else would you go after getting sloshed and watching footy?

Well this was a very interesting day in sports. I'm sure most of you have heard about the longest Wimbledon match by now. Hats off to the guys, that's really impressive. I watched (the second half again ;)) Serbia vs Australia and it was a great match. Both teams really wanted to win and it made the game packed with action and then all that effort went to nothing because neither team passed. I also saw some really commendable dedication from Terry who tried to stop a goal by diving with his head near the ground.

And who does England meet? Germany. That will be a great match, even if it's shame that a strong team will be out so soon.

Usually I wouldn't care, but I'm actually glad France is out, only because of Domenech. Hopefully France will get a better coach now.

Well, Germany has a relatively young team so I'm expecting them to lose against England. Will be a great game to watch nonetheless. ;)

I should mention that the US beat Algeria 1-0 today in a real nail-biter of a game advancing them into the next round! The way Ghana plays the US is going to have some trouble scoring though. I'm still hoping for a victory. :P

And Italy is out. What a thriller the last 20 minutes have been.

Isner beat Mahut a few minutes ago. 70-68 in the fifth set. They both got some heavy looking gifts. Legendary.

I know blaming it on the others or even counting on secondary outcomes is not sporty BUT that goal US scored against Algeria was FISHY.  :P

Aaaaand we're out.

It was great while it lasted.  ;)

Well, your prediction was right. I had the same feeling. For the record, it looks like that disallowed goal was actually legitimate.
I didn't get to see most of the match (maybe the last 30 minutes or so) so I can't say much. Was it that England was bad or just that Germany was really good? I know that even with 10 men they looked pretty dangerous against Serbia. I guess we'll see in their next match(es). The last two goals did look like the defense messed up.

Both.

The non-goal knocked the heart out of our wobbly team, and we went on to 100% attack against a German side deadly on the break.  We looked like bloody muppets out there.

I don't think England would have gone on to win the game even if the second goal had been awarded.  The players just didn't look as if they were capable of playing with the same quality they show week in week out, with the unfortunate exception of Stephen Gerrard.  He looked just as incapable of providing any kind of leadership as he did at club level over the last season.  It said a lot about the England defence that after the game the TV pundits were talking about what a good game David James had had in keeping Germany down to four goals.

Wow, the trip back home was insane, people everywhere, severe traffic jams, very loud, lots of celebrations ;)

Ghana + The referee weren't enough to stop us ;) It's hideous how desperate is the FIFA to keep a black team in the game, twice it's already happened to us, but having the referee on your side looks like it's not always enough! ;)

If Argentina loses tomorrow to Germany, I will be satisfied enough with this world cup :P
