LOL Italy got pwned and I never imagined USA could pick up such win over Egypt... congrats on that one.
I feel sorry for Italy tough. Everyone knows they currently suck, but they have to keep their dignity as world champs. Its clear that their new generation is worse than the previous.
Brasil x Italy?
Nah, today we had a Flamengo x Inter with a hattrick from the emperor!
4x0 Flamengo ! Flamengo, in the way to the sixth brazilian title!
yella, Spain vs Brazil, lets get to it. If any lose that would be devastating
I will laugh and never stop if Spain loses to the US, a team that is kicking ass tonight.. if they played like this more often, maybe the rest of the world would respect them.
more to come.
In 35 games, Greece alone (in our Euro Champion flair, not the post crappy team) had scored 2 goals on you, then you had the impenetrable defense and the godlike offense.
And now the United States, after schooling you in Basketball, school you in football.
I don't know what to say, laughing feels mean now.
But seriously.. the U.S. .... 2 - 0
USA all the way??
Kaka better look out, he may need to go to the Galaxy to learn some new moves!

Unbelievable. But you have to give them credit. They worked their socks off it was almost heroic. lol Ridiculous upset though, they just beat the best team in the world, who just came off a record 15 consecutive wins and equalled brazil's record of 35 unbeaten games and in a semi-final too. Dayum.
That is why when you like a sport, it is something fantastic. Who expect a victory of the United States? Favoritism dies when the game starts.
Spain was unrecognizable and her defeat makes me sad if Brazil go to final.
I was excited to see a match between these two teams.
Spain was playing normally, don't downplay the US's accomplishment, the US defense was just better, pay more attention to every single individual play made by Torres, Reira, Villa and Ramos, ALL blocked. Only Xavi and Fabregas had decent attempt.
Sorry, it wasn't my intention to downplay US's accomplishment, though my previous post has opened for such an interpretation.
But I don't think Spain played normally, Spain not entered the match with the same momentum from previous matches. Throughout the game, they started to control possession of the ball, it's true, but during the first half, they created few opportunities to score.
The Fury massacred in the beginning of the second half, I know. And again, I say they weren't in a good day. The current spanish offensive usually has marksmanship.
But, plus, US's defensive system was great today like in the old times, when Brazil had difficulty to beat them(most of the games Brazil vs US was 1-0 for Brazil)... and, quickly, they stopped the spanish pressure. They was tatically disciplined and demonstrated value in the game.
US's victory is totally deserved, but I don't think Spain played normally.
omg... is that even possible?
If the US takes it all I will cry.
I'll assume they'll be playing Brazil, so I hope they show better than they did earlier in the tournament. At least keep 11 men on the field (4 games we've had three red cards, fortunately the one against Spain came at the 86').
Anyways, we're are all of the Americans (I'm going by lack of American flags in this thread)? Shouldn't they be spreading some love for the upset the team just pulled off? Oh that's right, no one here cares .

It's a waste for a country like the US to win though..
When football crazy countries like in Europe and South America win, people riot in the streets and light cars on fire as naked firemen ride on the fronts of firetrucks screaming chants.
No, I'm not making that up, and that was in a small city, in the centers, everywhere you look there are red flare-fires being lit and cars with people on them/lit on fire.
If the US wins, a couple of middle-aged soccer moms and European dads that have immigrated there will drink a beer and say "horaah!"
